A Saudi emergency doctor handling an urgent medical case collapsed and died after suffering from a heart attack, a newspaper in the Gulf kingdom said on Tuesday.

Dr Najah Al Qadi was rushed into the cardiac section in the hospital in the Southern Saudi town of Samita but doctors failed to save his life.

“He died of a severe heart attack while he was performing his duty…he was an example in hard work and commitment to patients,” ‘Sada’ daily said, quoting Ahmed Al Sahli, director of the Samita health department.
