WOW, this is beyond shocking. A family in Honduras broke open their 16-year-old relative’s coffin when she was heard screaming inside a day after her funeral. Sadly, she died at the hospital just hours later.

Many peoples’ worst nightmare became a reality in Honduras this week, when Neysi Perez was buried alive in a concrete coffin and could be heard screaming for help from inside days later. Shortly after she was excavated from the tomb, though, she was, sadly, officially pronounced dead.

Trouble started when Neysi was found unconscious outside her home and began foaming at the mouth. Since her family is super religious, they called a priest, who tried to exorcise her, but when it didn’t work, she was rushed to the hospital, and just three hours later, doctors declared she was dead.

But one day after the funeral, Neysi’s husband, Rudy, was visiting her grave and, shockingly, heard screams and banging coming from her tomb. Desperately, family members broke through the concrete and opened the coffin to try and revive the helpless teenager, who had bruises on her fingertips, allegedly trying to bust out.

Unfortunately, when Neysi was transported to the hospital, doctors’ test still showed she was ‘clinically dead.’ She was taken back to the cemetery in the coffin, leaving her family devastated. “The whole family rushed in, almost breaking the door down, carrying the girl in her casket,” a doctor who was working at the time recalled. The 16-year-old was 3 months pregnant at the time of her death.

Our thoughts remain with Neysi’s family during this difficult and tragic time.
