Sarah Jacobs, the so called Welsh fasting girl, died at the age of 12. To her supporters she was a miracle child who had eaten nothing for over two years, sustained on religious faith alone. But, when put under 24 hour watch, she was dead within a few weeks. Her parents later served time in Swansea prison for her manslaughter.
