An Ethiopian housekeeper who was filmed begging for help as she dangled from the seventh floor of an apartment complex – while her Kuwaiti employer stood by and filmed her on Snapchat – has spoken out about her ordeal and debunked media claims that she was trying to kill herself.
The domestic worker has spoken to Ethiopian media for the first time since a video went viral showing her clinging to a window ledge before losing her grip and dropping seven floors. She escaped without major injury. "I am fine, thank God, I am fine," she said in a video as she lay in a hospital bed after the fall. She suffered a broken arm and bleeding from her ear and nose.
