A healing crusade has gone sour after two persons expecting their healing died at the venue as a result of heat exhaustion.

 Apart from the two victims, 13 other persons who are currently in various critical conditions attended the mass open air faith healing session in northeast Sri Lanka, police said Sunday.

Media report says that around 10,000 people, some of whom were seriously ill, had gathered at a school to listen to a man who claimed he could use “powers of the gods and the Buddha” to cure the sick.

Horowupotana Town Police north-east of Colombo said 18 people were taken to hospital, with 13 in a critical condition.

Officials at the local hospital said the two who died suffered heat exhaustion while others were treated for dehydration. Temperatures have soared to about 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in the area this weekend.

The faith healer, Deegoda Kumara, used his YouTube channel to deny he had caused the deaths and accused local media of causing unrest by spreading mistrust about his work.

In one video, Kumara claimed to have revived a road accident victim who had been in a coma in a Californian hospital.

He said he blessed the victim after speaking to her relatives on the phone.
