TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, 1961:
Doctor Celestino Ortiz Perez, taking Conchita's pulse.
FIRST CLIMB TO SAN SEBASTIAN DE GARABANDAL BY A PEDIATRICIAN FROM SANTANDER, A GREAT WITNESS OF THE "EVENTS"
A major scientific witness, Dr. Ortiz was the first physician to study the Garabandal phenomena seriously. Author of a report dated October 1962, of which a part was published, the pediatrician would spend about fifty days observing the visionaries. He always affirmed
that they were "normal from every point of view."

Doctor Celestino Ortiz Perez was an excellent pediatrician from Santander. The picture above shows him taking Conchita's pulse while she was in ecstasy, on her knees, her head way back and looking straight up to her vision. These photos are quite good and very valuable in regard to the history and truth of the apparitions. We will hear more about this doctor later on . . .
