Baby Killed When Family Jumps Out Of Paris Window After ‘Seeing The Devil’

From mistaking a husband as the devil to jumping out of the second floor with a baby in their arms, everything about this story seems unbelievable. The Belfast Telegraph reports:

A baby died when a family of 12 leapt from their second floor balcony in Paris claiming they were fleeing the devil.

Eight more were injured, some seriously, in the tragedy when they jumped 20 ft into a car park in Paris suburb of La Verriere.

The baffling incident occurred when a wife woke to see her husband moving about naked in the room, police said.

She began screaming ‘it’s the devil! it’s the devil!’, and the man ran into the other room where 11 others adults and children were watching television. One woman grabbed a knife and stabbed the man before others pushed him out through the front door.

    • Nobody jumped on a baby. But it’s so weird, even the naked man jumped. What a hell happened to those people?!?

  3. Religion is a force for good in the world, and should be encouraged and promoted worldwide. What could possibly go wrong?…

    • I think you’re confusing religion with psychosis as there doesn’t seem to be any religious motivation or relevance beyond screaming “the devil”. If the woman screamed “It’s a vampire/ghost/zombie” you wouldn’t have said it’s religion (or maybe if she said zombie you would have blamed voodoo?), these people are simply and entirely nuts. The fact that they chose “the devil” is irrelevant.

    Kind of puts you in mind of those FOAF stories about the pot-addled hippy babysitter who roasted junior while in a drug-fueled stupor. You know, the sort of thing that Jan Brunvand writes about http://www.janbrunvand.com/faq.html

    Sign them all up for the Darwin Awards, and good riddance! Mindless lemmings deserve everything they get and the baby probably would have grown up to be just as deranged. NEXT!

    Anyone who really believes in a “Devil” deserves what these people got. What a joke.
