Yes, the headline is true.
The Saudi Gazette reported about this story and this is supposedly what happened.
A Saudi man who lives in the south of Jeddah has a dispute with his 15-year-old daughter. In a fit of rage, the man pulls out a knife and stabs her four times.
He immediately realises the severity of what he has done and rushes her to the King Abdulaziz Hospital.
Doctors operate on her and see that none of her vital organs were stabbed. They manage to save her life.
Meanwhile, the hospital authorities call the police.
The father sees the police in the hospital building and makes an escape.
The man then surrendered to the police a week later and is currently awaiting trial.
