By sticking to a special diet and daily program which included walking around the house holding onions to discharge electricity. Jacqueline’s problem gradually diminished.
However, in 1985, her fourth child began to exhibit signs of her mothers problem by giving the midwife an electric shock. The television changed channels on its own or the picture distorted. The radio switched channels without being touched too. She also received and delivered severe electrical shocks. Some grocery stores and appliance shops attempted to ban her. After she married her second husband the strange and frightening phenomena continued to occur.
