But another post on Facebook claimed the victim is Melirose ‘Mel’ Balagosa who was pushed outside a 4th floor terrace by her employer at Jabriya 21 Building. A page “Justice for Melirose ‘Mel’ Balagosa” was also created to seek justice for the victim.
The Vice Consul Philippine Embassy in Kuwait is reportedly now helping the victim and investigating the incident.
No other details were provided about the incident but one Mr. Lee Cañete, in the comment thread, clarified that the victim survived the fall and is currently at an intensive care unit (ICU) of an undisclosed hospital.
According to the post, the victim was pushed outside a fourth floor window of an apartment by her Egyptian employer while cleaning. It was not immediately known who took Espinosa’s photo, but it is apparent she was seriously injured and in tremendous pain.
The woman was identified in a Facebook post shared by B. B. Bacutoc as Melrose Espinosa; a domestic worker from Iloilo who is currently working in Kuwait.
A photo of a severely hurt female overseas Filipino worker (OFW) lying in a pool of blood outside of what looks like a residential building is circulating in social media recently; supposedly another case of abuse by an Arab employer.
A similar incident was earlier reported, but it is not yet clear whether the two are related. The victim is said to have survived the fall and is currently in ICU.
