A young girl sacrified to the Mayan rain god over 1,000 years ago, in a small hanging cave towards the end of a three mile long cave system in the rainforest of Belize. The cave is difficult to get to and difficult to navigate as it contains an underground river (the cave being the source of the Roaring river). The skeleton has been crystalised into the rock with many years of water dripping over it.
