Parents Blame Occultic Ouija Board after Dozens of Students Hospitalized for 'Anxiety'

Ashley Sadler : Mar 9, 2023

Far from a mere "game," Ouija boards are considered a form of "divination," something explicitly forbidden in Scripture...

(Galeras, Colombia) — [] Nearly 30 school kids in majority-Catholic Colombia were taken to the hospital last month for "anxiety." Some parents reportedly feared the event was caused by the children playing with Ouija boards at school. (Image: Screengrab via LifeSiteNews /Twitter)

The head of the school, however, has sought to tamp down the rumors pending the release of medical reports.

The 28 children, students of the Institución Educativa de Galeras (INEGA) in Galeras, Sucre, Colombia, were hospitalized on February 24, accompanied by school staff and teachers.

INEGA head Hugo Torres said in an official statement posted to Facebook that the children had suffered from "possible cases of anxiety" and "were referred to the local municipal hospital according to protocols in place."

English-language outlets have reported that the children had been hospitalized after fainting. However, Torres referred only to anxiety, not loss of consciousness, in his comments.

It's unclear what the current status of the children is. The school hasn't published a follow-up statement after its initial February 24 Facebook messages.

In a video message in which he read the official statement, Torres said that the students' parents had been apprised of the matter at the time.

News reports also indicated the school was holding off on releasing information regarding the children's condition until medical reports are completed.

According to reports, however, some parents had expressed concern that the children's condition had been brought about by playing with Ouija boards, an occultic "game" designed to tap into the spiritual world and enable communication with the spirits of deceased persons.
