maid falls to deathAn Indonesian housemaid, nearly 30 years of age, fell to her death after attempting to escape from her sponsor’s apartment on the fifth floor of a building in the Saudi city of Madinah.

The sponsor and family left the house after locking the maid inside. She tried to scale down the building using several bedsheets tied together, but it could not withstand the weight of her body and she fell to the ground, alriyadh reported.

Security spokesman, Col. Fahd Al-Ghannam, said that the police received information regarding the maid’s escape but when they arrived at the scene, she was already dead with several fractures in her body.

The police transferred her body to King Fahd Hospital for forensic medical examination and all documents were submitted to the General Investigation and Prosecution Department.
