Reports of migrant workers facing cruelty at the hands of employers in the Gulf make the news frequently. This includes Indian workers who tell harrowing stories of lies, abuse and entrapment.

In a recent video that has emerged, an Ethiopian domestic worker can be seen hanging on to the balcony railing of her employer in Kuwait. Reportedly, she had attempted to commit suicide but then she started crying, hanging on to the railing and asking to be pulled back.

The employer chose to take a video instead of helping her.

Watch the video here:

The woman’s employer can be heard saying, "Oh crazy, come back" to her while she frantically shouts “hold me, hold me!”

The woman's hand slipped and she fell onto the awning below, which softened the blow a little. Even then the employer did not react, and continued filming.

The Ethiopian woman was later rescued by paramedics and taken to a hospital. She sustained injuries in her nose, ears and had a broken arm.

The employer has been detained by the police. The reason for the woman’s attempt to kill herself is not yet known.
