Abused woman cries for help after failed suicide

A Central woman remains warded at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, after she digested a poisonous substance in an attempt to take her own life due to the suffering she claims to have undergone at the hands of an abusive husband.

The woman, in a letter which was posted on social media by someone close to the situation over the weekend, is now pleading for assistance from the authorities, saying she does not know where to turn.
