The bizarre video of the statue was captured at the Chapel of Saltillo in Mexico’s state of Coahuila de Zaragoza and appears to show it with its eyes wide open. Paranormal ‘expert’ claims video has been verified and shows a miracle.
After a few seconds of staring at the confused video maker it suddenly closes them tightly, prompting the man with the camera to pull away in shock.
The footage was apparently captured during a church service in June.
According to Elancasti.com.ar, the video went viral after it was recently posted on Adimensional – a website for paranormal activity. Since appearing online, many viewers have claimed that a miracle occurred at the Mexican church.
Others have dismissed this idea and suggested that the clip has been altered with video editing technology. And some have stated that the video merely shows an optical illusion. But Ivan Escamilla, who runs the Adimensional site and is a self-proclaimed paranormal expert, believes the footage is genuine.
The paranormal enthusiasts does not believe there is anything ‘unusual’ about the footage, which he claims has been verified. According to Escamilla, more than 20 paranormal specialists as well as priests and special effects designers have spent weeks analyzing the creepy footage. He claimed that nobody found any proof or suggestion that the clip had been altered in anyway.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Saltillo has reportedly dismissed the video and is refusing to watch it.
