NY Post – A terrified maid pleaded for help as she dangled from a seven-story building, but her employer just filmed as she lost her grip and plummeted below, the shocking footage shows. The Ethiopian worker, who survived the fall with just a broken arm, claims she was fleeing someone trying to kill her inside the apartment in Kuwait. “The lady put me in the bathroom and was about to kill me in the bathroom without anybody finding out, she would have thrown my body out like rubbish, so instead of staying there I went to save myself and then I fell,” she said, according to local media reports. The footage shows the maid gripping to the balcony and crying, “Hold me, hold me,” but her Kuwaiti boss just replies, “Crazy, come,” before the woman’s hand slips and she falls, landing on a metal awning not far from the ground. Police have since arrested the employer for not lifting a finger to help, then posting the clip on social media, the AFP reports. The boss claims she filmed the ordeal in case she was accused of killing the maid, according to the Independent.
And you thought you had a shitty boss. The logic behind filming a person as they fall out of a 7th story window because you didnt want to be accused of killing them is absolutely mind bending. “I didnt want anyone to think I killed her so I created video evidence of me letting her fall a hundred feet out a window!” Brilliant. The judge will definitely understand where you were coming from on that one.
Next time you’re complaining that your boss made you stay late or come in early, remember you could be this Ethiopian chick dangling from a 7th story window. Next time you complain that your boss is talking too much on the radio about his ex girlfriend and her exercise bike instructor, just remember that some people have bosses who will just stand by putting your almost-death on snapchat. I’m not saying life in the cube is a peach. I’m not saying your boss isnt such a cock that you want to quit right in his face and shit on his desk. I’m just saying that, chances are, when the chips are down and you’re hanging onto a window sill with one arm about to fall to your death, they will probably lend a hand and save you. So it could always be worse.
PS – I legit had to think for a moment what Dave would do if I was in this situation. And I’m still not sure what he would do. I do think he would try to save my life BUT I definitely think his first thought would be “we gotta get this on camera.” Not for alibi purposes like this chick, but for content. He’d be like “Where the FUCK is YP! Frankie! Get this! Are you getting this?” Would just be a matter of whether I could hold on long enough while Dave got some video for his Twitter. He’d probably do a Pizza Review. “Alright its the KFC Death Pizza Review. One bit everyone knows the rules…”
