Mukhang di ko alam ang balitang etoh pero ayun lumabas na sa GMA news

A Filipino domestic helper died in Kuwait days after she was attacked by her employer’s pet lion, a report on “24 Oras” said Thursday.

The report said Lourdes Abejuela was brought to a hospital after she was attacked by the lion, which escaped from its cage, but she was immediately discharged.

Quoting Abejuela’s friend, the report said the domestic helper, who had been working with the same employer for years, experienced headaches days after the discharge.

This reportedly prompted Abejuela’s employer to bring her back to the hospital, where she died Wednesday.

The report said investigation is ongoing to determine the Filipino woman’s cause of death.


Update :

The Philippine Embassy attorney Sultan Al-Tuwailah said an accidental homicide lawsuit has been filed against the suspects.

He added, the Ministry of Health will also be sued for being negligent on its part and not paying enough concern to the health of the victim.

He went on to say the embassy will proceed with the case and ask for KD 5,001 temporary compensation.

Earlier it was reported Vice-President Jejomar Binay, who is also presidential assistant on overseas Filipino affairs, said a case for criminal negligence resulting in homicide had been filed by the Philippine government against the employer of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in Kuwait after the Filipina died from the severe mauling she had suffered from the lions.

On December 10, the lion-mauling victim, Lourdes Hingco Abejuela died from the severity of wounds she had suffered. The cage where the lion was kept had been left unlocked which allowed the predatory feline to lunge at the Filipina and maul her.

Emergency workers were able to bring Abejuela alive to the hospital despite the wounds she had suffered as a result of the mauling.
