Neysi Perez, 16, collapsed in her home in Honduras. She was walking outside to use the toilet when she collapsed at the sound of gunfire, although she was not hit, and seemed to go into some kind of shock. She started to foam at the mouth and her family took immediate action. They reportedly decided to call a priest, as they thought she was being possessed by a spirit.
The priest performed an exorcism, but she appeared lifeless and did not revive. Eventually the family finally transported her to the hospital. About three hours later, she was pronounced dead.
A day after her funeral service, her husband Rudy Gonzales came to visit her grave. To his surprise, once he arrive to the La Entrada General Cemeter he heard muffled screams and banging from inside the tomb of his wife.
He told Daily Mail, “As I put my hand on her grave I could hear noises inside…She was screaming for help. It had already been a day since we buried her. I couldn’t believe it. I was ecstatic, full of hope.”
A cemetery worker also allegedly confirmed he heard noises coming from the coffin but did nothing about it and tried to distract himself, thinking the noises were coming from somewhere else.
Her family desperately started breaking into the concrete tomb, calling out to her. However, when they got back to the hospital, she was pronounced dead once again, and she was taken back to the cemetery.
She had cuts and bruises on her fingers and her head which indicate that she did indeed desperately try to get out of the tomb. Her family says Perez’s body was warm when they re-opened the tomb and are blaming the doctors for signing her life away so quickly the first time.
Doctors think Perez initially suffered from a panic attack which temporarily stopped her heart. When she did awake in the tomb, her second cause of death was most likely due to the lack of oxygen.
