A little girl was crushed to death when she was run over by a four-wheel car driven by her father who did not see her standing behind the vehicle.

The father was moving the car back to park it inside his house in the southern Saudi province of Asir when he hit his daughter.

“The girl was standing behind the car but the father said he did not notice her,” Sabq newspaper said without specifying the girl’s age.

A nine-year-old Saudi girl had her finger cut off when a steel door at her house in Kuwait shut on her hand. After recovering from the shock and a crying fit, she quietly went into the kitchen with tears still in her eyes, put her severed finger in a plastic pot and covered it with a large amount of ice.

The girl then went to her neighbors who rushed her to hospital, where she had a surgery to stitch the finger back in its place.
“A brave little girl carried her severed finger to hospital where she was treated,” the Kuwait Arabic language daily said in its report.
