San Juan Tlacotenco (south-west Mexico) – Shortly after starting to play with an Ouija board, three American friends (Alexandra Huerta, 22, her brother Sergio, 23, and cousin Fernando Cuevas, 18) reportedly became possessed by evil spirits and were taken to hospital.
Alexandra’s parents said they had called paramedics after a local Catholic priest in the village of San Juan Tlacotenco refused to perform an exorcism on the three because they were not churchgoers.
Minutes into it, she started ‘growling’ and thrashing around in a ‘trance-like’ state.
Sergio and Fernando also reportedly started showing signs of ‘possession’, including feelings of blindness, deafness and hallucinations.
In reporting to the home, Paramedics also took Alexandra’s parents to hospital.
Alexandra was restrained to prevent her from hurting herself, before treating the three with painkillers, anti-stress medication and eye drops.
‘They spoke of feeling numbness, double vision, blindness, deafness, hallucinations, muscle spasm and difficulty swallowing.’
