Ethiopian maid's body hangs from AC

FUJAIRAH - The body of a 21-year-old Ethiopian housemaid was found hanging from an AC in her room at her employer's house in the Merbeh area, 15km from North Fujairah city.

A window curtain was used to hang from the AC.

According to police sources, the family of the Emirati employer, Z.S., informed the police about the incident. The body of the maid, identified only as S.K., was shifted to the Fujairah Hospital morgue.

Fujairah police have started investigations.

She was normal and nothing odd had been observed in her behaviour, her employer said. She might have committed suicide because she was upset as her son had a traffic accident in Ethiopia sometime last month, he added.
