16-year-old pregnant girl wakes up in coffin, alive...only to die in hospital

16-year-old Neysi Perez was three months pregnant when she collapsed after having a panic attack outside her home in La Entrada, western Honduras.

She started foaming at the mouth and relatives thought she was possessed and had her exorcised. She was later sent to hospital but was pronounced dead three hours later.

A day after her funeral, her husband Rudy Gonzales visited her grave and heard bangs and muffled screams from inside the concrete tomb.

A cemetary worker named Jesus Villanueva heard screams coming from her grave and said: 'I convinced myself that the screams were coming from somewhere else. I never imagined that there was someone alive in there.

According to AOL, family members smashed the concrete tomb and took the coffin to the nearest hospital. Relatives also said that the tips of Perez's fingers were bruised and that the viewing window on her coffin had been smashed.

However, she was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Doctors said that Perez's heart could have temporarily stopped due to the panic attack or a cataplexy attack, which made her lose voluntary muscle function temporarily.

They also believe that the girl may have then died from lack of oxygen after waking up inside the coffin.
