Face­book is sued by ‘sick con­tent’ worker

Midweek Sport - - HOT N HORNDY -

It is un­clear how the tur­tle ended up in­side the woman’s chuff and she told doc­tors she has “no rec­ol­lec­tion” of it be­ing put there. The ex-pat Brit said that she be­gan ex­pe­ri­enc­ing pain two days af­ter go­ing out par­ty­ing with friends in Tener­ife in the Ca­nary Is­lands.

Po­lice were called to the hos­pi­tal by a doc­tor who was con­cerned the woman may have been the vic­tim of a sex­ual as­sault.

A po­lice source on the is­land said: “This in­ci­dent did hap­pen and the re­ports are true. The woman does not know how the rep­tile ended up where it did and we don’t ei­ther.”

The woman suf­fered a “se­ri­ous in­fec­tion’’ from the dead an­i­mal, which is be­lieved to be a fresh­wa­ter tur­tle, and po­lice have opened an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the in­ci­dent. A FACE­BOOK em­ployee is su­ing Mark Zucker­berg’s tech gi­ant claim­ing it failed to pro­tect her from get­ting trauma from the graphic vi­o­lent im­ages her job re­quired her to watch.

The woman’s lawyer in Cal­i­for­nia said: “Face­book is ig­nor­ing its duty to pro­vide a safe work­place and in­stead cre­at­ing a re­volv­ing door of con­trac­tors who are ir­repara­bly trau­ma­tised by what they wit­nessed on the job.”

The em­ployee, Se­lena Scola, says she was sub­jected to “videos, im­ages and streamed broad­casts of child sex­ual abuse, rape, tor­ture, bes­tial­ity, be­head­ings, sui­cide and mur­der,” ac­cord­ing to the suit.
