Maid hangs by her fingers from seventh story window in Kuwait City, Kuwait. Her employer grabs a video camera instead of helping out. Maid plunges 7 stories.

The floor looks clean in this high-rise apartment, seven stories above Kuwait City traffic. Not a smudge in sight on the picture window. On the other side of the glass, the maid is hanging on by one knuckle, screaming.  “Oh crazy, come here,” a woman says casually in Arabic, holding a camera up to the maid.  “Hold on to me! Hold on to me!” the maid yells. Instead, the woman steps back. The maid’s grip finally slips, and she lands in a cloud of dust, many stories below.  The maid – an Ethiopian who had been working in the country for several years, according to the Kuwait Times – survived the fall. The videographer, her employer, was arrested last week on a charge of failing to help the worker.
