So unimaginable.......corpse reopened eyes after 300 years....details below
A terrifying incident has left many people in fear after the corpse of a little girl allegedly murdered by her father some 300 years ago opened her eyes.
Santa Inocencia's eyes closed
People especially Catholics have been left in shock after the body of a little girl who died 300 years ago appears to suddenly open her eyes.
According to The Sun UK, tourists were visiting the Cathedral of Guadalajara in Jalisco in Mexico, where the preserved remains of Santa Inocencia (St Innocence) are encased in a glass coffin.
One visitor was allegedly recording the tour of the building on his camera when he claims to have captured the moment the girl who died 300 years appears to open her eyes
The terrifying clip was posted on YouTube where it has been viewed nearly a million times. Many have believed the footage is a sign of things to come. The girl's corpse had been wax-treated for preservation, looks like a statue but is in fact the real body of the small dead martyr.
While some viewers claim the video is faked – others believe it is a sign from God.
Many stories abound how the girl died. The most popular version is that she was a Mexican girl named Inocencia (Innocence) who wanted to take her First Communion with her classmates but it was strongly forbidden by her father.
