The cries for help from his neighbours aroused the spirit of compassion and courage in the Saudi hero Ibrahim Al-Dhafian, who sacrificed his life to save an entire family. Ibrahim was surprised at the sight of the burning fire in the house of his neighbour Mohammed Saeed Al Muta’ab, in Al Shifa neighborhood in Riyadh. The children and women were stuck inside the house waiting for their bitter fate, but Ibrahim broke into the house to save them, resulting in his own death.
For his part, Saudi interior minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif, honored Al Dhafian’s son in recognition of his father’s role in saving the family of Al Muta’ab, from the fire in their home in Riyadh.
Zaid Al Dhafian, who accompanied his father in the rescue mission said “When my father heard the cries of the neighbors, he quickly ran and tried to save them, I followed in his footsteps. We went into the house despite the heavy smoke. The kitchen was completely burnt out and there was no sign of the family so we started to look for them and ensure their survival. We partially tried to put out the fire. When the civil defense team arrived at the scene, we were already successful in saving the women and the children”.
