KUWAIT CITY, July 10: The father of an unidentified 16-year-old boy who was run over by an unidentified Kuwaiti opposite McDonald’s on the Arabian Gulf Street, has poured his anguish and grief at the incident because of the inhuman attitude of the motorist who was driving a four-wheeler, reports Al-Rai daily.
According to the father, the incident happened at 6:30 pm on Jan 31 this year. He added, his son had gone to meet his friends and while crossing the road he was run over by the suspect, who allegedly escaped from the scene leaving the boy in a pool of blood.
The father went on to say, the ‘ominous’ incident has changed the course of an entire Egyptian family. He added, when they did not receive any response from the son, they checked police stations and hospitals and finally found him at the Amiri Hospital in a pitiful condition and lay on the bed in complete coma.
The father added, “All we knew was that my son was run over at the Gulf Street. When I asked about the suspect, I did not get a clear answer, and all I knew was that he fled the place and wondered if humanity had lost its meaning because he did not stop and give a helping hand or took the pain to call the ambulance to save the life of my son.” He added he knew later that the suspect is a citizen in his 50s, surrendered himself to police and was released on bail while his son remained in hospital for three months and unaware of what is going around him.
