Housemaid in coma dies

DUBAI: The household service worker who was put at the intensive care unit of a Dubai hospital while in coma following a ruptured blood vessel in her brain has died, The Filipino Times learned.

Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes said they are now in talks with the deceased’s employer for the repatriation of her remains.

“May employer siya. Naka-usap na namain. Kino-coordinate na namin with the employer,” Cortes said.

Reynaldo Anggulo, registered social worker said LE passed away at around 4pm, Friday, Nov. 29.

RS, an accounts coordinator who posted the matter on her Facebook page, told The Filipino Times that LE was admitted last week.

“Pumutok daw yung ugat sa utak at kumalat agad ang dugo kaya sya inoperahan,” RS said, citing hospital staff.

According to RS, LE is a single mom with two kids back in the Philippines. She arrived in Dubai on a visit visa and was referred to an agency which processed her employment as a household service worker — a known modus operandi of human traffickers.
