Kuwaiti woman arrested for filming maid’s fall from building without helping her

Kuwaiti police have arrested a woman for filming her Ethiopian worker falling from the seventh floor of a building in an alleged suicide attempt without trying to rescue her, al-Seyassah reports.

The Kuwaiti woman filmed her maid surviving a landing on a metal awning, then posted the fall on social media.

The video shows the terrifying moment the maid was hanging outside the building, with one hand tightly holding the window frame.

As she begged for help, her employer holding the camera says, “Oh, crazy, come back.”

The mortified maid is seen screaming “hold me, hold me”, just before her hand slips and she falls down to hit the awning, which appears to soften the impact.

The was no reaction from the employer as she continued filming.

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

The criminal investigation police referred the employer to the prosecution over failing to help the victim.

The reasons for the maid’s attempted suicide are not known.

Last Friday, the Kuwait Society for Human Rights called on the authorities to investigate the case and refer it to court.
