Nearly three dozen workers at a garment factory in Cambodia needed  medical treatment after hysteria over a ghost spread among the  employees.

In what had to be a bizarre scene, rumors that one of the workers had  been possessed by a ghost began circulating on the floor of the factory  along with claims.

According to Bun Van, an official with the garment factory workers union who spoke to the Khmer Times, this purportedly possessed person was "yelling for chicken to eat," ostensibly via some form of sacrifice.

The tale apparently was too much for some people to bear as "they started to faint one by one" upon hearing the scary story.
