Pakistani rewarded by crown prince for saving Saudi national’s life


Pakistani national Shaukat Amin was honoured by Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz for saving a Saudi citizen from drowning in a flood in Assir, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Saturday.

The crown prince offered Amin a financial reward for saving Fahd Al Qahtani who had been swept away by floods in Tathleeth Valley in the Assir region, the Saudi Civil Defence Directorate tweeted.

The Pakistani thanked the prince for his appreciation.

At least 18 people were killed as heavy rains and floods lashed Saudi Arabia last week. The toll covered much of the country, from Riyadh to Hail, Mecca, Medina, Al-Baha, Asir, Najran and Jazan. The civil defence agency said it rescued 915 people.
