Bizarre video shows nearly 100 students in northern Peru ‘possessed by the devil’.
The students have terrifying hallucinations of a tall man in black trying to kill them in what has been called a mass case of ‘demonic possession’.
After the outbreak of ‘demonic possession’ nearly 80 students of the Elsa Perea Flores School in Tarapoto are treated in nearby hospitals.
According to locals the school was built on a graveyard and they suggest that some of the students must have played with an Ouija board, which resulted in a demonic interference.
The paranormal event, which started on April 29, 2016, is currently being investigated by the authorities.
Shocking video shows pupils who are barely conscious, repeatedly screaming, and who appear to be delirious.
Doctor Antony Choy told national channel Panamericana TV: ‘We don’t understand how this has kept going on.
Elsa de Pizango, a concerned mother whose daughter has experienced some of the symptoms, said: ‘She fainted in school. They didn’t say anything at the hospital. She just fainted. She keeps on spitting froth from her mouth.’
Describing her experience, a pupil not named in local media, said: ‘It’s disturbing for me to think about it. It’s as if someone kept on chasing me from behind.
‘It was a tall man all dressed in black and with a big beard and it felt like he was trying to strangle me.
‘My friends say I was screaming desperately, but I don’t remember much.’
Another schoolgirl said she had trouble breathing and was desperately holding her neck as if someone was strangling her. According to her friends, she kept screaming: ‘Take it out.’
Another anonymous girl, aged 13, told local media: ‘Several children from different classrooms fainted at the same time. I got nauseous and started vomiting. I heard voices. A man in black chased me and wanted to touch me.’
Franklin Steiner, a parapsychologist who investigates paranormal and psychic phenomena – said: ‘It is known that years ago there were many victims of terrorism here. When this school was built, some say bones and dead bodies were found.’
Locals believe this is a case of demonic interference, saying some children must have played games that invoke demons such as using a Ouija board.
A Ouija board is marked with letters and numbers and some use it in the belief that they will be abe to communicate with souls of the dead.
As of yet, there has been no rational or official explanation for the phenomenon.
