Governor offers help to children of crash victims
Tabuk Gov. Prince Fahd bin Sultan has extended support to the three Jordanian children who lost their parents in a road accident on Sunday.
The children, who had also lost a sibling in the accident, were escorted and accompanied by Saudi officials up to the Durra border crossing between the Kingdom and Jordan on their way back home on Tuesday.
The youngsters narrowly escaped sustaining only minor injuries in the fatal accident, which occurred in Al-Bada near Tabuk.
Both the parents and the child died on the spot, while the injured were transferred to hospital.
“Two boys, aged 13 and 12, and a two-year-old girl had been discharged from Al-Bada General Hospital after undergoing treatment for their injuries,” said Mohammed Ali Alataiwali, Health Ministry director in Tabuk, who had followed up on repatriation procedures as per directives issued by the Tabuk governor.
