Man dies while reading newspaper in office

A young Saudi military man dropped dead while reading a newspaper in his office just two months before his wedding, a newspaper in the Gulf Kingdom reported on Thursday.

Colleagues said the 23-year-old corporal was in his office reading his morning newspaper when he suddenly knelt down and collapsed.

“They rushed him to the hospital but he was already dead….doctors said it was a natural death caused by a heart and blood circulation failure,” the Arabic language daily Okaz said in a report from the western town of Madina.

“But his father is still insisting on carrying out an anatomy on his son to determine the real cause of the death, which occurred two months before his son’s wedding.”
