A man in Tennessee cries tears of blood. On Oct. 21 it was reported that Michael Spann has seen numerous doctors but the reason that he cries blood remains a mystery. The first time it happened, Spann said that he got a really bad headache and moments later, blood started falling from his eyes. Believe it or not, this isn't the first time that this has happened to a person even though the instances are rare.
Doctors say that a person bleeding from the eyes usually occurs after some kind of head trauma. Spann says that he has never suffered any kind of head trauma.
Bleeding from the eyes can be Biblical and many people think that this might be some sort of stigmata. Spann says that the bleeding is less frequent now but it still occurs about two times a week. What do you think could be the cause of this strange ailment? Do you believe that it has any religious connection?
