A disturbing development coming out from Moruga Composite School in Trinidad has information that 17 girls were afflicted with a mysterious and sudden illness that resulted in behaviors that school authorities are calling a case of mass demonic possession. The mysterious illness afflicting the girls bore many of the symptoms of otherworldly force including sudden superhuman strength, glossolalia, and sudden violence. Still others are convinced that this was a case of mass hysteria and warn against the human rights violations that may occur as a result of the incident in the name of a spiritual “cure.”
The report submitted from teachers on an incident occurring on the 10th of this month suggests that seventeen girls simultaneously reported headaches, nausea, and general ill ease but within moments a classroom at Moruga Composite School was thrown into sudden disarray. Trinidad Express has reported that the number may be much higher, exceeding two dozen. The girls afflicted soon began speaking in a mysterious language and throwing some that approached them away with an unexplainable strength. A few even attempted to throw themselves off balconies to escape and risked injuring themselves greatly before being pulled away when school administrators were called to the scene.
Ambulances were called and the girls eventually received medical care, but no word has been released regarding how the incident was concluded or the wellbeing of those involved. And while the case for demonic possession in this incident seems inescapable, there has been an opinion leaking through in comments regarding the matter that seems to bear mentioning. Later the girls would report that a man made of fire was chasing them down as they were admitted to hospitals. Doctors suggest that their blood pressure was far beyond what he considered normal. The girls reportedly were later sedated at a nearby medical facility.
Many parents requested an exorcist be called in to assess the situation while others are looking for psychiatric expertise. If it cannot be traced to a paranormal origin, the incident will no doubt go down in history as an incredibly intense case of mass hysteria manifesting physical symptoms as well as psychological ones.
Just what caused these girls to lose control and begin behaving in such a strange way is not currently known, and there does seem to be a very real possibility that it will remain unexplainable for quite some time. Still others will be able to point to it as evidence of a coming major spiritual shift. Whether it is a change in the direction of good or bad, however, remains yet to be seen.
Were these girls demonically possessed? Or was it simply an extreme case of mass hysteria? Authorities both in the Moruga school as well as readers will likely not agree, but we will likely be covering the case again at some future date when more information has been gathered on it. At the moment it can be labeled only as unexplainable.
