Possessed students screamed “the devil is going to take me” after a ouija board session that went very wrong. Many shouted and fainted as they played with the mobile phone application which ‘called up spirits of the dead’ in a bizarre case in Lloro, Columbia.
About 20 of the Agricultural School’s pupils had to be transferred to a health centre and later a church, with relatives asking for the help of a priest.
Francis Salamanca Martinez, the mayor of the town, said: “They are fainting, shouting that the devil was going to take them with him.”
Doctors at the health centre were “not able to find a scientific reason for their behaviour,” the mayor added.
According to local media, the Catholic church is analysing the case.
