Sri Lankan Man Dies in Botched Exorcism?

Sri Lankan Man Dies in Botched Exorcism?

Maybe performing an exorcism that involves you being buried alive isn’t such a good idea. One man just outside of Colombo, Sri Lanka thought everything would be a-OK, but things didn’t go exactly as planned (gee, I wonder where this story is going). An exorcist 32 year-old Maxi Castro, was called to help put an end to a series of strange events that were occurring at the house of a school teacher named Wasantha Bandara. She went on the Shree FM radio station to explaining her story. Wasantha said she saw Maxi perform a ritual at a temple six months prior, and hoped he could help her with her problem. Maxi agreed and came down to help the teacher. Checking out her property, Maxi said Wasantha was having bad luck because someone had sprinkled human ash at her house, but said that he could drive out the evil spirits using a ritual like the one she’d witnessed him perform six months prior. This ritual involved him sacrificing a cat (that’s horrible) and then he would bury himself alive in a shallow grave while holding a sword. He would push the sword up from underneath the shallow grave, indicating that he was ready to be dug up (this all sounds like a bad magic trick). Maxi buried himself and everyone waited for him to push the sword up. Three hours passed and Maxi hadn’t pushed the sword up. This is when onlookers decided to dig him up, only to discover that he was unconscious. He was taken to a hospital, but was already dead.

So the lesson here is, don’t bury yourself to get rid of evil spirits. I’m still trying to figure out how exactly that would get rid of the evil spirits? Would he absorb the spirits through the dirt? Would he somehow stab them when he raised the sword up? And how did he preform a similar ritual six months prior and not die then? Maybe he was where a snorkel the last time and wanted to see if he could do the ritual without one. But, that’s really all there is to say on this. So, here’s today’s question. What is one thing that you did that went horribly wrong?
