Almost a hundred school children in northern Peru have been allegedly possessed by the devil and see visions of a man in black trying to kill them.
The mass case of ‘demonic possession’ has caused some pupils to suffer from seizures with horrifying hallucinations.
Somehow, experts were unable to explain the strange phenomena at the Elsa Perea Flores School in northern Peru’s Tarapoto, which is said to be a Mafia graveyard before.
According to local reports, since last month, almost 80 students have been experiencing the contagious bizarre condition, which also includes widespread convulsions and fainting at the school.
Children between 11 – 14 have been reportedly fainting, repeatedly screaming, and having strong muscular convulsions.
Doctor Antony Choy told national channel Panamericana TV: “We don’t understand how this has kept on going on. We know it started on 29th April and now it is still happening. Now there are almost 80 pupils [still affected].”
Elsa de Pizango, a mother whose daughter has experienced the unexplainable condition, said: “She fainted in school. They didn’t say anything at the hospital. She just fainted. She keeps on spitting froth from her mouth.”
According to the experience of the unnamed student, “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 student recalled that she had trouble breathing and was desperately holding her neck as if someone was strangling her. And her friend said that she kept screaming, “Take it out.”
While a 13-year-old girl 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.”
Watch this report:
According to Franklin Steiner, a parapsychologist who investigates paranormal and psychic phenomena, “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.”
Meanwhile, the locals believe that the demonic possession, was caused by some children who must have played a Ouija board, which is often use to communicate with souls of the dead.
The use of this board is relentlessly forbid by many religious groups which can lead to demonic possession.
Until now, there has been no rational or official explanation for the strange phenomenon that happened in the school.
