A PE teacher collapsed and died while teaching a class at Kortoba primary school in the Saudi city of Al-Namas yesterday morning.

Fifty-year-old Abdullah bin Ali Mefreh Al Sahri had sought retirement at the end of the current academic session, after serving the school for 27 years. Al Sahri reportedly had a heart problem and was suffering from diabetes.

Even though his colleagues tried to revive him, he died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
