A Saudi paramedic who was dispatched to the scene of a fatal car accident earlier this week, got the shock of his life when he realized his own family members were involved in it.
According to Twasul news site, Saudi Red Crescent member, Fayhan Al Jaberi, was leading a team of rescuers to the scene in Medina when he noticed the crashed car looked similar to the one owned by his family.
