News of a woman vomiting insects in the village of Pointe Michel Sunday afternoon is creating a buzz everywhere.
Dominica News Online spoke to several close friends and relatives of the woman whom they say has been admitted to the Princess Margaret Hospital.
According to reports, the woman vomited 13 creatures including a crab, cockroaches, spiders, frog, flies, and a butterfly.
It all started, the relatives say, when the woman found an “anchor-like cross” on a shelf at her work place, a popular supermarket in Roseau. The relatives said the woman dumped the object, and shortly after began feeling sick – a feeling she attributed to sickle cell which has had for many years.
It is further reported that the woman got a dream in which she was warned to return the item she discarded.
While washing clothes at her home Sunday afternoon, she reportedly
discovered the said item in her jacket and was surprised to find it because she recalled dumping it. One of her relatives took the item and threw it into the sea, and it was then she started to feel worse.
It is reported that she began to vomit “normal stuff” but later on she brought up the 13 insects/animals, relatives say.
She was rushed to the hospital where she is still a patient.
Relatives attributed the occurrence to witchcraft.
