4-year-old Russian boy dies during exorcism; exorcist blames boy for “jinx”

A 4-year-old Russian boy with pneumonia died during an exorcism ritual being performed by a Korean shaman, authorities said.

The family of the child had asked the female shaman and her husband to exorcise “evil spirits” they believed were affecting the boy, The Moscow Times reported Thursday.

The child stopped breathing during the ritual in the village of Sergeyevka in the far east of Russia on Saturday, the newspaper said…

The family intended to request help for the grandmother, who has diabetes, but the shaman told them the entire family was jinxed and the boy had put a curse on them, a police report said.

I’d comment, but.. What’s not obvious?

    I would ask if that image is the world’s last standing church several centuries from now, but it can’t be: By that time, no one would need a Dead End sign to recognize it for what it is.
