An Asian housemaid, apparently infuriated by her employer’s treatment, waited for his teen age sons to sleep then poured boiling water on them before fleeing.
Police said they arrested the maid two days after she poured hot water on the two boys, aged 18 and 15 years, at their house in the northern town of Hail.
“The maid confessed to the crime…she has been referred to the public prosecutor while the two boys were admitted to hospital for treatment,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Alriyadh said.

“She rushed her to hospital, where doctors succeeded in restoring her heart beat…she was admitted to the intensive care unit while her mother faces charges of negligence,” Alwatan daily said.
