Eyes open and close on Jesus statue

A VIDEO recorded in the Chapel of Saltillo in Mexico shows a statue's eyes opening all on their own.

The eerie clip, which was filmed back in June, went viral this week after it was uploaded online.

The footage primarily focuses on a large statue of Jesus which was present during a church service at the Chapel of Saltill, a historic building situated in the Mexican state of Coahuila de Zaragoza.

While it is difficult to see anything at first due to the footage being quite dark, on closer inspection the video does appear to show the statue's eyes opening for a few seconds before closing again, seemingly without alerting anyone else who was there at the time.

Whether the movement is actually paranormal in nature however remains open to debate.
