Disturbing footage of a young woman reportedly possessed by demonic spirits after playing with an old ouija board has emerged online.
Alexandra Alvarado Huerta, 22, growls and thrashes around in a trance-like state, while lying strapped to a gurney. Alexandra is said to have fallen into this state after using the board along with her brother Sergio, 23 and their 18-year-old cousin, Fernando Alvarado Cuevas, who has also become ill.
The dark event occurred in San Juan Tlacotenco, a village near the town of Tepotzlan in south-western Mexico. Mexico’s El Heroica newspaper claims the family begged for help from a nearby church, but not being regular church-goers, the priest refused to perform an exorcism.
The director of public safety in Tepoztlan, Victor Manuel Rojas Demesa, 46, told the country’s Excelsior news website: “The medical rescue of these three young people was very complicated.”
No exorcisms were performed – the three was treated with painkillers and eye drops and have now all made full recoveries.
Mainstream religions and some occultists have associated the ouija board with the concept of possession. They view the use of the board as a spiritual threat and have cautioned their followers not to use them.
