Borges-Morais Family hostage ordeal: Family held hostage for 3 days were blindfolded and tortured for group who wanted their money

Marcela Borges – a true hero

Victims
Rubens Morais
Marcela Borges (pregnant)
Ryan Borges Morais, 5 years old

Marcela Borges is a true hero. She survived torture from her captors, while hearing her husband and 5-year-old autistic son being tortured as well. She was able to jump out of a window (being 2 months pregnant with their son, Lucas) and get help. She is a strong woman whose faith and love of her family got her through this. I greatly admire her.
