Remember that episode of Buffy where she bashed herself out of her own coffin after being resurrected inside it? Or that Ryan Reynolds movie Buried where he got buried alive in a coffin? Well, it happened last week in La Entrada, Honduras to one of the most unlucky teenage girls in history in this gut wrenching story.
A 16 year old girl named Nyesi Perez from the city woke up late one night last week to use the bathroom and started foaming at the mouth, possibly brought on by a panic attack caused by the sound of gunshots nearby. Her parents saw this as a sign of demonic possession (reasonable?!) and so decided to call the police but when they arrived Perez appeared to be dead. She was taken to the hospital and declared DOA.
After her funeral, her recently married husband Rudy Gonzalez visited her tomb a day afterward where he could hear noises from inside her coffin:
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.

The coffin was broken up with a sledgehammer but Nyesi could barely breathe and was again taken to hospital. This time she was again – even more tragically – declared dead and returned to her tomb in her coffin, which is probably one of the most absolutely fucked up things that anyone involved in the incident will ever have to go through.
It’s unclear why she was declared dead in the first place but it was probably because the staff at the hospital were incompetent. Maria Gutierrez, Nyesi’s mother said she was very suspicious when the doctor’s first signed her death certificate:
Even after a day in the tomb the colour 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.
Absolutely messed up really, although it does beg the question of how long someone is buried after they’re declared dead over in Honduras. Even so, this is screwed up beyond belief really, and that’s saying something considering it’s been reported on the day some prick uploaded first person video of him shooting his former colleagues to death.
