A Holy Child statue in a town near Acapulco has been inexplicably 'crying' since the start of the year and residents of the community aren't quite sure what to make of it. The ceramic piece, which can be found in a home in the village of Kilometro 42, reportedly first began 'shedding tears' on January 1st. Since then, additional 'crying' incidents have occurred with numerous witnesses watching in awe.
According to one resident, opinions on the eerie phenomenon have been mixed with some people suggesting that the 'tears' are a bad omen and others arguing that the 'crying' is a more benevolent sign from God. For their part, officials with the local Catholic Church were reticent to ascribe any special significance to the ongoing event and seemed to express skepticism of it altogether.
Check out a video that was recently taken of the 'crying' statue at the Coast to Coast AM website.
