March 31, 2017 – Ethiopian Lady Falls From 7-Storey Building In Kuwait In Suicide Attempt, Boss Arrested For Recording Video
More details have emerged on the viral story of a lady from Ethiopia who fell to her death in Saudi Arabia.
Note: The incident didn’t happen in Saudi as stated in the viral story.
According to the Guardian, it happened in Kuwait.
An advocate group said the heartless woman recording the video had been arrested for not offering help to the maid who had a change of mind while attempting suicide.
She landed on a metal awning and suffered nose and ear bleeding and a broken arm but she didn’t die as reported in the viral story.
Kuwait is home to more than 600,000 domestic helpers, a majority of them Asians, many of whom complain of abuse, mistreatment and non-payment of wages.
Most of these maids escape their employers every year over abuse, and the government has set up shelters for them. Some seek help from their embassies.
