The girls aged between 12 and 15 took ill in the Choco region of Colombia and were filmed screaming and writhing on the floor in some chilling footage.
Other victims began foaming at the mouth while experiencing hallucinations and another even claimed she could see a ‘man dressed in black’.
According to Colombian television network Caracol, the girls were taken to a medical centre in Novita where they had to be restrained while fitting.
The schoolgirls, who were all found to be suffering the same symptoms, first experienced seizures while at school after they had finished playing a game of ‘Charlie Charlie’.
The game, which is an updated version of Spanish game Juego de la Lapicera, involves two pencils balanced on top of each other over a grid with the words ‘yes’ and ‘no’.
Participants ask questions to an unseen entity and wait for the top pencil to move and point to one of the two answers on the sheet of paper.
The news site reported that four teenagers initially took ill before more followed suit. They were all later taken to the hospital to be treated.
Doctor Jair Ruiz recalled the moment they arrived. He said: ‘They came in screaming, mumbling incoherently, hallucinating and foaming at the mouth.’
A number of medical tests were conducted and doctors ruled out the possibility of disease, intoxication or use of hallucinogenic substances.
No consistent health problems were detected and the girls’ vital signs eventually returned to normal.
Local mayor Deyler Camacho spoke to villagers following the incident and asked them to remain calm. Meanwhile, a local pastor has started praying against witchcraft.
This is not the first time a group of Colombian schoolgirls have been omitted to a medical centre with similar symptoms after playing ‘Charlie Charlie’.
In 2015 four hysterical teenagers were sent to a hospital in Tunja for treatment. They received a diagnosis of ‘mass hysteria’ with some psychotic symptoms and were later sent home.
