The Sheriff’s Office says it received the call Tuesday from a residence near Riverton, about 120 miles west of Casper. The caller said a woman possessed by a poltergeist had stopped breathing when sprayed with Holy Water and then went into cardiac arrest when others attempted an exorcism.

KTAK radio reports that the woman was taken to a hospital. Police said she was in stable condition.

The home’s occupants told police that a demon had been breaking things and biting people in the home, but the deputy couldn’t find any evidence.
