Local newspapers reported that the child who was run over by the car was rushed to the hospital. He suffered a broken arm and multiple bruises, requiring bandages to be wrapped around his head.
A Twitter account named "Celebrity Authority" shared the video, stating that Abdullah was struck beneath the car in Jazan, where he was standing with two other individuals at the roadside.
The video's uploader, titled "In Jazan... A Child Survives a Horrifying Hit-and-Run Accident," explained that Abdullah was one of the individuals standing by the roadside when a car unexpectedly veered and struck them, causing him to fall beneath the vehicle. Thankfully, by the grace of God, Abdullah is safe, and all of them survived the incident.
This is not the only recent incident captured by cameras in the kingdom. Another widely circulated video on Saudi social media shows a reckless driver intentionally colliding with another vehicle before attempting to run over a crowd of people on the street.
