A Filipino domestic helper in Saudi Arabia has jumped from the fifth floor of a building causing her to be in a critical condition on Saturday.

The woman was identified as Gina Uday Monpon, 28 years old, from Brgy. Kematu, Tboli, South Cotabato.



The woman's fall caused her fractures in the leg and the spinal cord.

Monpon is a wife and a mother of three and tried her fate in Saudi for her family.Her father, Federico Monpon, has approached the radio network Bombo Radio to report the incident and ask for aid.

According to Federico, his daughter started working overseas just five months ago and had not trouble with her employer there.

However, just last week, one of Gina's children was hospitalized and she started expressing her intent to return home for children, Federico said.



According to reports, Gina was seen walking on the fifth floor of the building where she was employed.

After awakening, Gina was able to make a statement, and claimed that she has no recall whatsoever regarding the incident.

At the moment, the OFW is unable to undergo her necessary operation for reasons of insufficiency of funds, and her employer's refusal to shoulder the expenses.
