Crazy Filipina Stabs Family in Taichung

[quote]It is just so hard to find good hired help these days. I wonder if abuse provoked this attack or if she is just a nutter.

[quote=“Taipei Times”]A filipina housekeeper allegedly attacked four members of her Taichung employer"s family with a knife on Sunday after suffering a psychotic episode. Police said the woman, surnamed Visitacion, told them that she lost control after having a vision that her four children in the Philippines had been murdered. Police say she attacked the family as they were eating dinner.

The employer said she had been in a bad mood recently because she had been unable to contact her husband and her contract was not renewed.

Despite being slashed in the neck, body, and/or arms, family members are in good condition.[/quote][/quote]
Quite a visitation indeed!

The news did say that family had change maids often.

It is that lot’s of Taiwanese families that employ foreign caregivers are lucky this doesn’t happen regularly … caregivers are mostly kind natured people … BTW, I thought that foriengers could only be ‘caregivers’ … not ‘housekeepers’, but who cares anyway. Just hire a caregiver and employ them as housemaids … cheap solution.

She probably did all the cooking and cleaning for the family as well as took the kids to school and maybe on her free time went to the parents-in-laws place to clean up there.

From Taiwan News Online.
“Wang said Visitacion was hired take care of his unhealthy two-year-old son who was born prematurely and stressted that he and his family were friendly toward her and allowed her to eat with them.”

I’ll wait for her to agree with the employer’s assessment before chalking her actions up purely to her own psychosis.

Some maids in Taiwan are treated like dogs…Our previous maid from Vietnam told us countless stories of physical and mental abuse from her sponser before us.We now have a maid from Indonisia and she is paid extra when she does work at the inlaws.

The damn maid companies are no better.They will lie and cheat the maids out of their hard earned money every chance they get.
