Egyptian actress Summaya al Khashab has miraculously survived
death after losing her balance and falling into the Nile River while filming the
scene for her new television drama “Wadi Al Mulook” (Valley of Kings).
Summaya said that God had saved her and actress
Riham Abd Al Ghafour, who also fell with Summaya, from death by drowning in the
Nile. The actress stated that she and Riham were to go on a boat, but for some
reason lost their balance and fell in the river.
According to the internet website MBC.net, Mohammad
Ashour, assistant director for Shadi Abu Shadi, was able to rescue both women,
despite the fact that the part of the river they fell in was very deep and
difficult to swim in. Summaya prayed and thanked God for giving her a second
chance at life. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
