British woman who jumped from Indian hotel recalls ordeal

A British woman who jumped from her hotel balcony in India in fear of a sexual assault spoke of her ordeal today, but insisted it would not stop her returning to the country.

Jessica Davies, 31, had been staying at the Hotel Agra Mahal in the northern city of Agra, near the Taj Mahal, for a few nights when the incident happened.

She says the hotel manager came to her room in the middle of the night holding two bottles of oil and offering her a massage. She pushed him out and bolted the door, but he is alleged to have started banging on it, asking to be let in.

"I realised he wasn't going to go away," she told Sky News today. "I started screaming for people to help."

Ms Davies, from London, said she then realised her balcony door was not secure and that the manager, who was later joined by a second man, could access her room that way. Adding to her terror, there was a power cut, plunging the room into darkness, and her phone was not working.

"I knew there was no other choice at that point, apart from to jump from the balcony, which I did," said Ms Davies, who injured her leg as she leapt from the second to the ground floor.
