Teen Girl, 16, Who Was Declared Dead Awakes ‘Screaming For Help’ From Inside Coffin, Family Gets Her Out – But Not In Time
After 16-year-old Neysi Perez – who was three months pregnant – died of an apparent panic attack, she was buried in her wedding dress at La Entrada General Cemetery. The following day, her husband, Rudy Gonzales, visited her grave and claimed to have heard her screaming for help, according to Daily Mail. Apparently, the dead girl came back to life after being laid to rest.
Gonzales quickly alerted family members, who captured the moment they worked diligently to get her coffin out of the tomb by using a sledgehammer.
“I was heartbroken because my sweetheart had been taken so suddenly from me. I wanted to be near to her,” said Gonzales. “As I put my hand on her grave I could hear noises inside. I heard banging, 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.”
A cemetery worker, Jesus Villanueva, also claimed to have heard voices coming from her grave but said, “I convinced myself that the screams were coming from somewhere else. I never imagined that there was someone alive in there.”
“That afternoon the girl’s husband came to me begging me to get her out because she was alive. He was hysterical. The family were soon here and started breaking through the tomb, shouting her name.”
The girl’s cousin Carolina Perez said, “Once we had taken her out of the tomb I put my hand on her body. She was still warm, and I felt a faint heartbeat. 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.”
However, when her family arrived at the hospital with her body still inside of the casket, they had to deal with the devastating news of losing her again. Doctor Claudia Lopez told the family that after evaluating Perez, there was no saving her — she was dead, reported Mirror.
Lopez concluded that she may have suffered a severe panic attack, which caused her heart to stop temporarily. When she finally regained consciousness, she was inside of a coffin and more than likely died of lack of oxygen. The doctor also said that she could have had a “cataplexy attack, which is an abrupt temporary loss of voluntary muscle function typically triggered by a strong emotional stimulus such as stress or fear, during which the victim maintains full conscious awareness.”
Perez’s family was devastated by the news, especially her mother Maria Gutierrez,who believes that her daughter was “buried alive and blames medics for being too quick to sign her birth certificate.”
“The doctors declared her dead but everybody else around me kept telling me she wasn’t. She didn’t look like she had died,” she said. “Even after a day in the tomb the color of her body was normal, her corpse didn’t smell, she just looked like she was in a deep sleep.”
“There was no rigamortis, her body was still flexible, it was impossible that she had been dead for so many hours. We were all so happy. After being declared dead for such a long time, everybody was saying that she had come back to life.”
“We were all so happy. I thought I was going to get my daughter back,” said Gutierrez.
