LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - A viral video appears to show a man in a suit and tie attempting to perform an exorcism on an allegedly possessed woman. The video was captured on a metro train in Mexico City. 

The man is seen holding the safety rail above his head with one hand, and the other is outstretched toward the woman. "In the name of Jesus, leave!" the man commands. 

At first, the woman seems to comply. "Yes, that. Get out, get out... The blood of Jesus has the power to release me from all my sins."

The demon takes over. The woman lashes out with her umbrella, striking the man. 

He replies, "I forgive you, I forgive you, I forgive you, in the name of Jesus. I forgive you... God bless you." he continues to pray. 

The woman adds, "Idiot." 

The train comes to a stop and passengers, including the man, begin to exit. The video ends as the woman strikes his outstretched hand with her umbrella. It does not appear the exorcism worked. 

The pair have not been identified. 

Experts warn that possession is real and exorcisms are dangerous. There are also many cases in which people think involve demonic possession, but are caused by mental illness. It requires a trained expert to discern the difference and to apply the correct solution. 

Most alleged cases of possession are mental illness and patients can be helped with medication and therapy. However, the number of genuine possessions is on the rise. The Church has struggled to meet the demand for exorcisms as more people dabble in atheism and the occult.

If a person believes they or someone they know is possessed, they should contact their bishop's office. Under no circumstances should an untrained person attempt to perform an exorcism.
