A terrified Bolivian partygoer revealed to local media sources on Monday (August 8) morning that he woke up buried inside a coffin after passing out intoxicated at a party last week and soon discovered that people there had offered him as a human sacrifice.
Fortunately for the 30-year-old Victor Hugo Mica Alvarez, he managed to eventually free himself from the casket at Achacachi, Bolivia, which is around 50 miles away from the location where he had passed out drunk.
“They had buried me alive, I don’t know the place well. This morning I woke up and realized that I couldn’t move anymore, I was locked up, I was inside a coffin,” said the young man.
“I had to break the glass and I saw that the sand came down; I have broken the coffin so that it can reduce the sand and there I was able to get out and I escaped from the place,” he continued.
He had been enjoying drinks the night before at the Mother Earth festival’s opening in El Alto, where he had joined thousands in worshiping Pachamama, the goddess of fertility and the earth.
Victor appears to have been chosen as one of this year’s “sullu,” or sacrifices, offered to the Earth by festival participants.
He claims that on August 6, he was buried alive as a present to the goddess Pachamama and that he only awoke because he had to go to the bathroom.
“The only thing I remember is that I thought I was in my bed, I wanted to get up to go urinate and I couldn’t move,” Victor said.
Victor, who appeared to be perplexed during his media interview, revealed that he had managed to claw himself out of the pit as mud and concrete began to pile up on top of him.
“When I pushed the coffin, I was able to break a glass that it had and that way I was able to get out,” he continued. “I barely broke the glass and, through the glass, dirt began to enter. They wanted to use me as a sullu.”
Victor’s mother told the media on Thursday (August 11) that her son is now traumatized.
“He is traumatized. At night my son cries, screams and talks like crazy, he sleeps all the time. He told me that it seems that he was in Achachicala, just on a pampa and that he got up,” she said.
After telling the police about his encounter, the partygoer claims officers refused to believe him because he was “too drunk.”
