Salerna of Ifield Miracle Story

Salerna of Ifield, accused by her mother of stealing cheese, and threatened with being whipped to death unless she confessed her guilt, threw herself in a deep well, calling upon St. Thomas as she did so. The saint heard her prayer, and supported her in the well, placing her feet upon some kind of staff until help came and she was drawn out .
