Yes, you read that correctly. An Indonesian woman got her feet sawn off by her husband in a jealous rage. He thought his wife was cheating on him and he snapped. When he returned to reality, he realized what he had done and took her to the hospital. He was arrested shortly after.
Former UFC fighter and Taiwanese MMA star, Rocky Lee, knows the victim and has started a GoFundMe. According to Lee’s GoFundMe Page:
“I was shocked and horrified to hear this morning that my housekeeper and friend Putu Careen the victim of a horrific domestic violence attack a few nights ago at her home in Canggu, which resulted in her having both of her feet sawn off with a machete, in front of her two young children (9 and 13), by her husband.
Not only is this one of the most vile and vindictive acts of violence I’ve ever witnessed, the worst part is that in Indonesia there is no welfare or government assistance for medical treatment of this kind.
This incident has left Putu without the ability to work to support her 2 children, pay for immediate medical treatment, prosthetic legs or obtain any kind of rehabilitation. All proceeds will be used for Putus expenses and all remaining money will be given directly to Putu, via monthly salary or immediate necessity, to provide for herself and her children.
If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Putu, you would know that she is honestly one of the most genuinely kind and caring people you could ever meet. Ever since I moved to Canggu 2 years ago, Putu has helped me with everything, from finding accommodation to helping me with the local markets and everything in between. She even came to make me her home remedies when I was sick with dengue fever.
I struggle to see how anybody could do such a thing to such a loving and caring human being.
I visited her in the hospital today and despite everything she has been through, she is still remaining positive and smiling in the same way she always has. It was so remarkable to see for someone in her situation and was such a testament to the amazing woman and mother that she is.
All donations are welcome and appreciated.
No matter how small.
Some of your donations were handed to Putu directly by myself yesterday afternoon for her immediate needs. All money raised through go fund me will be withdrawn from Australia and delivered personally to Bali by myself and used directly to pay for all medical expenses and accommodation for Putu and her children.”
Lee’s GoFundMe page has raised over $32,000 in just one day. You are a good man, Rocky Lee.
