A five-year-old boy’s eyes were gouged out with a spoon by his own family members in a satanic ritual, which was conducted to bring about the end of the world.
The Mexican family, from the town of Nezahualcoyotl, has been jailed since, it has been reported.
Fernando Caleb Alvarado Rios, who was then five-years-old, was ordered to close his eyes as his mother, grandparents, aunt and uncles danced in a circle and called on Satan to reveal himself.
But when he was too scared to do so, his mother, Maria del Carmen Garcia Rios, grabbed a spoon and gouged them out, the Daily Mail reported.
They were caught when neighbours came to investigate and saw the child screaming in pain.
More than two years after the incident, a court on Wednesday sentenced the group to 30 years each in jail.
Fernando has since been given glass eyes and is now in care.
The family believed the ritual would bring them closer to Satan who could claim them as his own and save them from a deadly earthquake.
