A YOUNG woman has been rescued from a ‘cult exorcism’ in Spain after neighbours heard her ‘blood-curdling screams’.
Spanish cops were called to an apartment near Plaza de la Gesta in Oviedo, northern Spain, following calls from concerned residents.
“I heard a woman screaming and it frightened me,” said one neighbour, “The screams were blood-curdling, like she was being slowly murdered.”
A ‘shamen’ is thought to have led the exorcism, with several other young people present.
“It absolutely had nothing to do with sanctioned Catholic exorcism,” said Benito Gallego, dean of Oviedo Cathedral.
“It may be that it was some sort of cult ritual, faith healing or voodoo, but is far removed from the exorcism practised by the Catholic Church.”
Sanctioned exorcisms are regularly carried out by the Catholic Church in Spain.
The woman, thought to be from South America, was hospitalised after being found in a ‘state of great mental anguish’.
She has since been discharged with no physical injuries.
