A drunk bloke was buried alive in a coffin after passing out at a weird ceremony – and only realised when he woke up in the middle of the night to pee.
Víctor Hugo Mica Álvarez, 30, attended a ceremony dedicated to the Toba people of South America, an indigenous population spread across Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia, where this party was.
Álvarez was invited by a mate to have a few beers at the ceremony and, he says, ended up being given up as a sacrifice to Pachamamma, or Mother Earth.

“We've gone dancing, I'm the guide, and I don't remember anymore. The only thing I remember is that I thought I was in my bed and I got up to go pee, and I couldn't move anymore.
"And when I pushed the coffin I barely broke the glass and, through the glass, dirt began to enter and so I managed to get out. I have been buried," he told local media.
The young man broke out of the coffin and asked a nearby person for help, and he was brought to a police station.
Other reports state that he was found wondering around El Alto, the second-largest city in Bolivia. He himself said that the ceremony was in Achacachi, a town on the shore of Lake Titicaca, nearly 80km north of El Alto.

Álex Magne, who found him wandering, said that Victor Hugo was covered with cement on his face and head, meaning that those who attempted to sacrifice him may have tried to bury him under cement.
Even still, to make matters worse for Álvarez, cops told him to come back when he had sobered up.
“I have broken the glass, my whole hand has been hurt, I have barely gone out, but I went to the police and they told me that I am drunk. 'You're going to come healthy', they told me," he said.
