A despicable woman has been detained by police in Kuwait for filming her Ethiopian maid falling from the 7th floor in a suspected suicide attempt without trying to rescue her. The question is what could drive a maid to want to commit suicide in the first place? The gulf state is well known for mistreating domestic servants and low paid foreign workers.

The Daily Mail has reported:

‘The Kuwaiti woman filmed her maid land on a metal awning and survive, then posted the incident on social media, Al-Seyassah newspaper reported.

The Kuwaiti woman filmed her maid land on a metal awning and survive, then posted the incident on social media, Al-Seyassah newspaper reported.

The 12-second video shows the maid hanging outside the building, with one hand tightly gripping the window frame, as she begged for help in an apparent last-minute change of mind.

The woman holding the camera is heard telling the hanging maid: ‘Oh crazy, come back.’

The terrified maid is seen screaming ‘hold me, hold me’, just before her hand slipped and she fell down to hit the awning, which appears to soften the impact.

The employer made no reaction as she continued filming.

Later, paramedics rescued the maid and rushed her to hospital where she was found to have a broken arm as well as a bloody nose and ear.

The oil-rich Gulf state 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.’ AFP in Kuwait City
