Pictures have emerged of grieving family members smashing their way into a tomb, wrenching open the wooden casket, after claiming to have heard 16-year-old Neysi Perez inside.

Relatives claimed they then found the glass viewing window on her coffin had been smashed and the tips of her fingers covered in bruises.

Sadly, despite efforts to revive her medics found no signs of life and she was later returned to the cemetery and reburied in the same mausoleum.

Ms Perez, who was three months pregnant, reportedly fell unconscious after waking up in the night to use the outside toilet at her home in La Entrada, western Honduras.

It was believed she may have collapsed in an apparent panic attack after hearing a burst of gunfire.

When the teenager started foaming at the mouth her religious parents called the local priest believing she had become possessed by an evil spirit.

Relatives told how the priest tried to exorcise her, but she later became lifeless and was rushed to hospital, where three hours later doctors declared her dead.

Ms Perez was buried in the wedding dress she had recently used to get married.

A day after her funeral, her husband, Rudy Gonzales, was visiting her grave at the La Entrada General Cemetery when he heard banging and muffled screams from inside the concrete tomb, and raised the alarm.

Mr Gozales told local TV news, Primer Impacto:

"As I put my hand on her grave I could hear noises inside. I heard banging, then I heard her voice. She was screaming for help.

"It had already been a day since we buried her. I couldn't believe it. I was ecstatic, full of hope."

Cemetery worker, Jesus Villanueva, said he had also heard noises coming from the grave.

He said: "I convinced myself that the screams were coming from somewhere else. I never imagined that there was someone alive in there."

"That afternoon the girl's husband came to me begging me to get her out because she was alive. He was hysterical. The family were soon here and started breaking through the tomb, shouting her name."

Ms Perez was taken by truck to the nearest hospital in San Pedro Sula, where she was carried in still inside her coffin.

Although medics tried to revive her, all the tests they carried out showed that she was clinically dead.
