The Argentinian little sisters
Three months after surviving a third-story fall, one of the Argentine twins who was bullied in Barcelona recovers from her injuries as her family plans to return to her homeland. After the fact, calls to prevent bullying tripled in Catalonia.
The news that Alana and Leia had decided to jump hand in hand shocked the public. It happened on February 21 in Catalan territory, a few hours after they had left the Llobregat de Sallent public institute. “I want to be happy, but of course I’m going to suffer for the rest of my life and I’ve made the decision not to continue,” wrote Alana, who died from the jump.
His sister Leila managed to survive but was seriously injured with a broken jaw, several fractures in her body and a compromised lung. She had also written a letter: “You know how much I love my sister. I’ve seen all the bullying she gets, I’ll do what she decides. I will accompany her where she wants,” she said.
The fact generated an in-depth investigation to discover the reasons that had generated the premeditation of the leap into the void. There it was discovered that the Argentine twins were being harassed. “They called them ‘sudacas’ and made fun of their accent,” witnesses said. However, the girl who survived is making progress in healing her.
Leila spent March 7, her thirteenth birthday, hospitalized in the Parc Taulí hospital in Sabadell. However, his progressing health forced him to leave the institution on 30 March.
His family is already thinking of leaving the tragedy behind and returning to Mar del Plata, his hometown, after living abroad for three years.
