South African woman bathed with hot water during fight over boyfriend
A woman was at the receiving end after she was bathed with hot water by a woman fighting her rival.
According to the report, the two women were fighting over a man when one woman vowed she would teach the intruder a lesson she’d never forget.
She then went to her room to mix the boiling water with cooking oil and methylated spirits and went back to get her revenge but when she threw the boiling concoction, it was on the wrong person.
The 32-year-old Sibeko, had burns on her right hand, arm and right side of the body while the attacker has been arrested on a charge of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
Speaking from her hospital bed where she is receiving treatment for her burns, Sibeko told Sun reporters:
“It was very painful. The things she poured into the water caused a lot of harm. I can’t sleep well at night now that it is summer.
I was lucky I hid my face behind my hand otherwise she would have ruined my face. She must learn a lesson that jealousy is deadly.
I can’t sleep at night because it still burns inside.”
Honeydew cops confirmed that a case of assault was opened at the station.
