A woman has died after a South African pastor placed a heavy speaker on her body and even sat on it, to prove God power.
The failed miracle happened in Mount Zion General Assembly after Pastor Lethebo Rabalango had organized a night of worship at his church in Polokwane .
The so called pastor was teaching about demonstration of power in which he emphasized that if Jesus walked on water, he too could do anything with faith.
According to the Southern Daily, he invited a girl from the praise team and asked her to lie down.
He then ordered ushers to carry a big speaker and put on her stomach saying the weight would not harm her.
As if it was not enough, he climbed on top of the speaker, adding pressure to suffocate the girl who remained quite for she had already passed out.
After seating on top of the speaker which was still on the girl’s stomach for close 5 minutes, he got up and ordered removal of the speaker, but the girl could not rise because she had fainted.
After some elders gave her first aid treatment, she revived but complained of a broken rib.
She was then taken to hospital and has now died of internal injuries to her lungs.
However, the pastor blamed the girl and accused her of having little faith for she could not withstand a very simple task.
