Ghastly surprise! Three hundred year old mummy suddenly opens its eyes
In Guadalajara, Mexico's second biggest city situated just west of the country's center, a magnificent cathedral stands imposingly above the busy streets.
Stepping inside and walking down its glitteringly decorated corridors, one comes across a glass coffin surrounded by candles and flowers.
Therein lies something both macabre and fascinating: the dead remains of a young girl.
Santa Inocencia, as the child saint is called, died over 300 years ago. Legend says she was stabbed by her father after receiving her first communion — something he had expressly forbidden. The nuns took her body into the cathedral and, as was sometimes customary at the time, had it preserved with wax to prevent decomposition.
Since then her body has lain at rest under a statue of the Virgin Mary, her white dress decorated with pearls and a crown of silk flowers on her head — a picture that numerous tourists and pilgrims from around the world flock in to see.
For one tourist, a visit to the cathedral turned into an experience even more creepy than just viewing the body of a dead child.
With a handheld camera, the man pans over the girl's doll-like face, hesitating briefly by her contorted hands. Returning to Inocencia's face, her eyes slowly open and stare directly at the camera.
Only moments later, her eyes are closed again, as if nothing had happened.
Countless people have already watched the video on Youtube and opinion is starkly divided. Some claim the film is evidence of the supernatural.
Others point to the poor, blurry quality of the video and the noticeable wobble shortly before Inocencia opens her eyes, and believe it's simply a clever hoax.
Those brave enough to view the video can see for themselves and form their own opinion:
Whatever the true story behind this video is, it certainly does send chills down the spine!
