Earlier this year, The Conjuring 2 joined an illustrious and notorious club: Horror movies so intense, someone died while watching them. This makes films that caused vomiting and/or fainting pale in comparison! But what happened next on June 17, 2016 is nearly unfathomable, making this the Scariest Real News Story of 2016!
The fact that a 65-year-old man was so terrified he had a fatal stroke while watching The Conjuring 2 is newsworthy enough; what happened next, though, is almost unbelievable—but this isn’t a satirical article, or a (very) early April Fool’s joke. This is real.
After being declared dead on arrival at the local hospital, paramedics asked the deceased man’s companion to deliver the body to the nearby morgue, but neither of them arrived. Ever. They both seem to have disappeared—and no one has seen them since! It happened in Tiruvannamalai, India, and was widely reported on Asian media outlets, including The Times of India:
According to police, two persons, both native of Andhra Pradesh, had gone to watch the night show of the newly released horror movie – The Conjuring 2 – in Sri Balasubramaniar Cinemas in the town. While watching the climax of the movie, one of them complained of chest pain and fainted. He was rushed to the Old Government Hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead.
The paramedical staff in the hospital asked the person to take the body to the Tiruvannamalai Government Medical College Hospital on the outskirts of the Town for postmortem. However, he disappeared with the deceased’s body. The police are inquiring with the auto drivers and lodges in the town to establish the identity of the deceased.
