(RIVERTON, Wyo.) A Riverton area woman was sent to the hospital yesterday (Tuesday) after an exorcism attempt reportedly caused her to have a heart attack.
According to Undersheriff Ryan Lee with the Fremont County Sheriff’s Department, the 911 dispatch center received a call from a residence on Firethorn Lane stating a 31 year old woman at the home was possessed by a “Poltergeist” and had stopped breathing after she was sprayed with Holy Water.
Other occupants of the home then attempted to perform an exorcism at which time they reported the exorcism activity caused her to go into cardiac arrest.
When deputies arrived the woman was found to be breathing, however she was taken by ambulance to the Riverton Hospital for unknown reasons. She was in stable condition when she arrived at the hospital.
The occupants of the home stated that a demon had been in the house breaking windows and dishes, as well as biting the occupants of the home for the last two days; they asked a Deputy Sheriff to look into the matter.
Lee said the Deputy was unable to substantiate any criminal activity or that anyone had been bitten.
