Shocking: Man Wakes Up In Coffin
A PETRIFIED partygoer who passed out drunk has told how he woke up buried inside a coffin as revellers offered him up as a human sacrifice.
Victor Hugo Mica Alvarez, 30, broke out of the casket in Achacachi, Bolivia, around 50 miles from where he had blacked out during a boozing session.
He had been downing drinks the night before at the launch of the Mother Earth festival in El Alto and ended up worse for wear.
The 30-year-old had joined crowds celebrating nature and the natural world while praising Pachamama, the goddess of earth and fertility.
Festivalgoers offer up sacrifices, known as "sullu", to the planet - and it seems Victor was elected as one of this year's contributions.
He believes locals buried him alive as a gift to the goddess on August 6, explaining he only stirred from his slumber when he needed a wee.
The traumatised bloke told local media: "Last night was the pre-entry [of the festival], we went dancing. And afterwards I don't remember.
