A Filipino domestic worker escaped from her abusive employers only to be raped by a Pakistani taxi driver in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and was severely injured in the attack.

A Facebook post by Nadzker Hartnett said the 28-year-old Filipina arrived in Riyadh six months ago and was a domestic worker. She was allegedly abused and mistreated by her employers.

She escaped from her employer’s house and took a taxi to the Philippine Overseas Labor Office. However, along the way the Pakistani taxi driver allegedly raped her.

The woman said in a video that she was offered 50 riyals by the driver, but she refused it. When She started to bleed heavily, the taxi driver left her and drove away. Fortunately, there were several Filipinas in the area and they took her to a hospital.

At the hospital, she was given a blood transfusion and had two operations to repair the damage done during the rape. She is now in the King Saud Medical City, Maternity Hospital.

  1. Hey there! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Carry on the excellent work!

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out
    a developer to create your theme? Superb work!

  3. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site.
    You have some really great articles and I believe I would be a
    good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some content for your blog in exchange for a
    link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested.
    Regards!

  4. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying
    to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  5. I enjoy, lead to I discovered exactly what I was having a look for.
    You have ended my 4 day lengthy hunt! God Bless
    you man. Have a nice day. Bye

  6. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you could do with a
    few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  7. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz answer back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from.

    kudos

  8. If they have a unique name, I’ll often have success simply searching for their name within Twitter. If they have a common name, I have to look at their bio photos. If they match the gravatar used in their comment, I can be reasonably sure it’s the same person.
    First thing I do is visit the person’s blog. If they advertise their Twitter handle somewhere on there (the sidebar, About page, footer, etc.) it’s pretty easy. Where it gets tricky is if the person doesn’t advertise their Twitter on their site.

  9. Well, find everyone’s Twitter handles isn’t exactly magic. Just takes a little hard work.
    With low mail-open rates I wouldn’t think it was effective. Tweet seems like a cool idea.How’d you do the magic – finding twitter handle of people who comment and all that?

  10. Btw I learned another gem from you – you tweeted letting me know you left a response on my comment. And sort of solved my problem – I used to send individual mails to my readers letting them know I responded to their comment on my blog.
    Appreciate the tweet and kind words, Shiv. Hope you are having a great day!

  11. You’re writing a book? Awesome! I’d be thrilled if you included a paragraph to the post and linked to it in your book. (I wouldn’t mind being mentioned by name either. Haha.) Hope your readers find it useful!
    You’re not alone — I used to put the bare minimum into my blog comments, too. “Going through the motions” is how I used to refer to it!

  12. Thanks on your marvelous posting! I genuinely enjoyed reading it, you
    are a great author. I will be sure to bookmark your blog and definitely will come back later in life.
    I want to encourage yourself to continue your great writing, have a nice weekend!

  13. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end
    or if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly
    appreciated.

  14. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

  15. Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to
    him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  16. Superb site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that
    cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest.

  17. Please let me know if you’re looking for
    a writer for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I feel I would be a
    good asset. If you ever want to take some
    of the load off, I’d really like to write some articles for
    your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an email if interested. Cheers!

  18. I for all time emailed this weblog post page to all my associates, for the reason that
    if like to read it after that my friends will too.
