Buried alive??

Buried alive??

One of the terrible stories at the Recoleta Cemetery is the one about Rufina Cambaceres. She died very young, only 19 years old. She was buried at this cemetery but when her grandmother went to visit her the following day she found that the coffin where she has been buried was moved and the lid was broken. Her grandmother was convinced that Rufina had been buried alive, during a catalepsy attack. Rufina is said to be the girl who died twice. In the statue of the mausoleum, Rufina places her right hand on the handle of the crypt as if she wanted to open it, which has only fed the belief of the legends surrounding her death.
