ASIR REGION, Saudi Arabia – A road accident claimed the life of a Filipino and injured 4 other kababayans in Abha City last month.
Julio Recare died in the hospital due to severe head and body injuries. His companions Jimmy Covita, Alexander Aquino, Harold Enchano and Sanny Manato were also brought to a hospital.
A GMC van allegedly bumped the Pinoys’ vehicle along Abha National Road around 9 a.m. on March 23.
The victims failed to see the plate number of the suspect who sped off without stopping to help bring them to the hospital.
Other Filipinos who were driving in the area immediately came to the aid of the victims.
“Naabutan ko tatlo na lang. Yung isa sa labas, nasa daan, tapos yung dalawa nasa loob pa. Yung isa yun ang kinarga ko at dinala sa Asir (Central) Hospital,” said Pinoy Nimroad Habaradas. Andy Relox, Balitang Middle East
