In a bid to take his own life, a young man got off his car at the third bridge of King Fahd Causeway and jumped into the sea on Monday night.
A Border Patrol unit that happened to witness the suicide attempt, rescued the man from the water. They then alerted Red Crescent, who administered first aid.
The man was in critical condition with very weak pulse; he was quickly transferred to King Fahd Hospital where he later died. The young man was in his 30s and of Saudi nationality, reported Sabq news.
