August 28, 2014 - Lagarfljtsormurinn, the giant serpent rumored to inhabit the lake Lagarfljt near Egilsstair in East Iceland truly exists, as announced on Saturday by the majority of a 13-person truth commission established in 2012 by the Fljtsdalshra municipal council.
The commission was given the task of determining whether a video of the alleged monster shot by Hjrtur E. Kjerlf, which went viral, was authentic and whether he was entitled to a prize of ISK 500,000 (USD 4,300, EUR 3,300).
"I was told about the commission's conclusion and I'd like to say that I'm extremely pleased to confirm that the majority of the commission was right," Hjrtur told austurfrett.is.
While concluding that Hjrtur's video was authentic, the commission determined that a photo shot by Sigurur Aalsteinsson, who had also made claim to the prize money, did not show the actual serpent.
