The ‘Land of Illusion’ is a popular annual haunted house in Middletown, Ohio. While walking through the exhibits, a 16-year-old girl collapsed and pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Christian Faith Benge was born with only one functioning lung. The birth defect resulted in an enlarged heart. The girl apparently died from heart failure. Whether the incident was prompted by the ghosts, goblins, zombies, and killer clowns remains uncertain. There were no drugs or trauma involved.
Her mother, Jean, performed CPR on her daughter but was unable to save her. She called Christian the sweetest person she had ever known, and that it was ‘her time.’
