MANILA, Philippines – Seventeen students from Camarines Sur were allegedly possessed by spirits on Wednesday.

San Fernando, Camarines Sur parish priest Fr. Mike Dela Rosa said the possession began after one of the students of Pinamasagan High School suddenly fell unconscious.

The priest said the student was brought to a nearby grotto by her classmates. However, 16 other students also fell unconscious and showed signs of possession.

Dela Rosa said the students went back to normal after he anointed them. He added that he was able to talk to the spirit who possessed the students.

Some of the witnesses, however, did not believe that the students got possessed. They said the students might have suffered from fatigue after attending a religious activity over the weekend. – Report from Jonathan Magistrado, ABS-CBN News Bicol
