Two Saudi sisters died within a few hours of each other, with the second passing away after she was shocked by the news of her sister’s sudden death.
The first sister was found by family members dead in her bed at home in the eastern port of Dammam when they tried to wake her up in the morning.
“They then phoned her sister and informed her. The sister got a shock and fell unconscious.
“She was rushed to hospital but died on the way just a few hours after her sister’s death,” the Arabic language daily ‘Sada’ said.
The paper did not mention the two sister’s ages or the cause of death of the first one.
