New Delhi: A Russian model broke her spine after she jumped from the sixth floor of a Dubai hotel while reportedly fleeing a man seeking to rape and kill her. The 22-year-old model has been identified as Ekaterina Stetsyuk.
According to a Siberian Times report, Stetsyuk told the outlet she was threatened with a knife by her alleged attacker, which prompted her to jump out of the window to escape.
Stetsyuk's friend told the Siberian Times that to save her life and dignity, she jumped from the sixth floor. "She cannot walk or move by herself, but doctors are giving good forecasts because her spinal chord is intact," her friend added.
Stetsyuk's mother too came out in the defence of her daughter and said that she is not an escort, as claimed by many on the social media, and said that her daughter is in Dubai on a modelling contract. "My daughter is a well-known model in Irkutsk. On 15 February she left for Dubai for a month, where she had a contract," the model's mother told the Siberian Times. "They want to make her guilty."
Meanwhile, the model has been taken into the custody at Dubai hospital for jumping from the sixth-floor hotel room in Dubai to escape an alleged rapist.
On the other hand, the police have arrested the alleged attackers from the Dubai airport as he was reportedly attempting to flee the nation. As per Siberian Times, if convicted, the accused can face up to 15 years in prison for the crime.
