Old man dies after car gets stuck in the sand

A 70-year-old man suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes died after his car got stuck in sand while on a safari trip in the Saudi desert, a newspaper in the Gulf Kingdom reported on Monday.

Police had been searching for the man from another Gulf country after his neighbour in northeast Saudi Arabia reported him missing for three days, the Arabic language daily Okaz said.

“After extensive search, police found the man dead in the desert after his car got stuck in the sand…he died apparently because of his illness and thirst,” it said.
