Alexandra Huerta, her brother Sergio, and cousin Fernando Cuevas began growling, thrashing around, and showing signs of temporary deafness and hallucination.
Three American friends were rushed to hospital after becoming “possessed” by demon spirits while trying to contact the dead with a Ouija board.
Alexandra Huerta, her brother Sergio, 23, and 18-year-old cousin Fernando Cuevas had wanted to talk to the after life while visiting friends in the village of San Juan Tlacotenco in south-west Mexico.
However just moments after using the spirit board the 22-year-old started “growling” and violently thrashing around in a “trance-like” state.
Paramedics who attended the scene said Sergio and Fernando also started demonstrating signs of “possession’" including temporary deafness, loss of vision and hallucinations.
Alexandra had to be forcibly strapped to a stretcher to prevent her from hurting herself while being administered anti-stress medication.
Victor Demesa, 46, the director of public safety in the nearby town of Tepoztlan, said: “The medical rescue of these three young people was very complicated.
“They had involuntary movements and it was difficult to transfer them to the nearest hospital because they were so erratic.
