A 20 yr old girl drowned and died at a beach in the United Arab Emirates. Reason? Her father stopped the male lifeguards from saving her because he regarded touching his daughter was against his values and culture.
The man is now under arrest.
This ‘father’ took his wife and children to the beach for a family picnic. His daughter was suddenly swept away by the waves and drowned after receiving no help on time. Lt. Col. Ahmed Burqibah, deputy director of Dubai police’s search and rescue department, told a local newspaper, “Two lifeguards were at the beach, and they rushed to help the girl. However, there was one obstacle, which prevented them from reaching the girl and helping her… the belief of this Asian man, who considered that if these men touched his daughter, then this would dishonor her. It cost him the life of his daughter. He started pulling and holding back the lifeguards and got violent with them. He told them that he prefers his daughter being dead than being touched by a strange man.”
What do you think about this man?
