Housemaid dies after jumping from 15th floor

13/7/2005 Sharjah: A 24-year-old Filipina housemaid died after jumping from a 15th floor window of a building in Sharjah, a police source said.
Police said the incident happened at about 2pm last Wednesday at a building in Al Nahda opposite the Sahara Centre.

According to police investigations the housemaid jumped from the window of her room following a dispute with the family she worked for.


The Lebanese family told police the maid had to look after their four-year-old child and the child had told his mother the maid had beaten him. The maid was shouted at and she locked herself in her room.

The housewife's husband was called to help in the dispute. When he reached home he saw a woman's body had been covered up by police outside their building. It was the housemaid's body.

An Indonesian housemaid, who works in the same building, said she used to see the Filipina housemaid playing with the child under the building.

Another Filipina housemaid in the same building said she had heard the housemaid had been having financial problems and was unhappy.

"She worked for the family for one year in this building. I think she used to work for them before they came here but I'm not sure," she said.

Police are investigating the case to find out the reason behind her death, they added the maid was not on the family's sponsorship. end

    Siguro yung floor levels lang na pinanggalingan ang magkaiba. The rest seems to be the same. Lintek talaga kayo!
