I am shocked and at the same time feel sad for the little girl.
Sometimes it worries me to see maids helping old parents in
wheelchairs or babies in prams down escalators. Should they
fail to exercise care, the consequence will be very serious.

The girl is only 12 years old and an only child. She has physical and mental problems...so poor thing.

If the maid really pushed her down, her embassy will find her a lawyer to try and get her off the hook.

I find it strange that the police classified as murder so soon when they reported not sure how she fell.

The girl could not possibly have climbed and fell.

Well, at least old parents can speak up if they are not happy with the maids. I pity those infant and babies that cannot speak to express themselves yet. Parents need to watch those burises.... happened to my niece before and it was sad.

It's really sad and feel sorry for her parents since she is the only child. Really appreciate my present maid who loves and dotes my children, also takes good care of my father who suffers from stroke. Can't imagine if she doesn't want to continue her contract which is due next May! :cry:

She is mentally and physically unsound, so I don't think she would be incapable of climbing. There have been cases where mentally unsound patients have "seen a pretty butterfly" or somerthing, and have climbed out to "get it" and have died, so I think she would be perfectly capable. of doing something like that.

However, if the maid did that to get "relief" from the girl, then she is a sicko. Doesn't she know about Image???
