A rescue team found the body of a Saudi man in the middle of the desert in Riyadh region in ‘sujood’ (prostration) position. The man, who had gone missing a few days ago, had his palms and forehead on the sand as if in deep supplication.
Videos of the rescue team finding the man and his car, which was stocked with sticks indicating he was gathering wood, went viral on social media platforms, prompting hundreds of the users to pray for him online.
Saudi man Dhuwaihi Hamoud Al-Ajaleen had gone missing from his home in Riyadh’s Wadi Al-Dawasir, according to local media reports.
The fourty-year-old was found later in the middle of the desert after police launched an intensive search for him.
Rescue teams drove through the desert before finding Al-Ajaleen a few meters away from his car, local media said.
