A video of a dead girl being rescued from her coffin a day after being buried had surfaced via YouTube. The video showed the girl’s family members frantically smashing the tomb to get the 16-year-old girl, Neysi Perez, from inside her coffin.
The family decided to smash their way into the tomb because the girl’s husband, who visited her a day after her burial, heard her screaming from the inside. Once the tomb was smashed, the family saw the glass in the coffin already shattered and the girl’s fingers were bruised. She was still warm and was immediately brought at the hospital – only to be declared dead upon arrival and be reburied thereafter once again.
The family now blamed the doctors for immediately declaring her dead the first time around. She could have been still alive, they believed. But the bigger question was, was she screaming overnight after being woken up and finding herself inside the coffin? Could she have been rescued alive then?
The video was posted via YouTube by SePurTube. It has already been viewed for more than 400,000 times.
According to a report from Stuff.co.nz, Perez, who was three months pregnant, heard gunfire nearby their home in Honduras. She suffered panic attack and immediately lost consciousness. Her mouth started to foam. At this point, her parents called in a local priest to examine her. Everybody believed that she was possessed by an evil spirit.
The local priest then tried to perform an exorcism but then she stopped moving. The family decided to bring her at the hospital where three hours later, she was declared dead the first time.
The family decided to bury her in her wedding dress. After her funeral, her heartbroken husband visited her grave. It was then that he heard muffled banging and screams from inside the tomb. He immediately called his wife’s family.
In a related report from the Herald Sun, the husband said he heard banging when he visited the grave. “Then I heard her voice. 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,” the husband was quoted as saying by the Herald Sun, citing local TV station Primer Impacto.
Once Perez was taken out of the tomb, one cousin put her hand on her body. “She was still warm, and I felt a faint heart beat,” the teen’s cousin, Carolina Perez, said. “She had scratches on her forehead and bruises on her fingers. It looked like she had tried desperately to get out of the casket and hurt herself,” the cousin recalled.
The family decided to take her again to the hospital. However, she was declared dead for the second time. According to the report Stuff.co.nz, doctors believed Perez had only suffered panic attack during her “first death.” According to the doctors, panic attack could have stop Perez’ heart from beating. The doctors also considered cataplexy attack which is described as “a temporary loss of voluntary muscle function.” Maybe Perez was not dead the first time and her voluntary muscle just did not function.
The Perez family now holds the previous doctors liable for her death.
“The doctors declared her dead but everybody else around me kept telling me she wasn’t. She didn’t look like she had died,” Perez’s mother lamented.
