A Saudi boy pushed his younger brother into a plastic bag and zipped it up before nipping out of the room, leaving the child struggling for air.

The kids’ father, a journalist in a local newspaper, started to search for his little son after the boy failed to respond to his calls, ‘Sada’ newspaper said.

“The father then went into the boys’ room and found that his son was stuffed unconscious inside the bag,” it said in a report from Central Saudi Arabia.

“The father rushed his unconscious son to the hospital, where doctors raced against time to save his life.”
