BLESSED ALEXANDRINA (5)

The Jump

On Holy Saturday 1918, the day she was fourteen, Lino Ferreira, along with two Brazilian emigrants visiting their families, forced entrance to the room where she, Deolinda and another young woman were, intent on criminal purposes. To escape them, Alexandrina jumped from a window. That heroic twelve foot leap affected her spine and came to confine her in bed from 1925 till her death.
Alexandrina jumped from the window of her house.
