Two brave Saudi students died while saving the lives of drowning children in Boston, Massachusett’s Chicopee river in the U.S. The local news show reported that the two Saudis helped save the children, along with other adults, but did not make it out alive due to the strong currents in the river.
The victims, 27-year-old Theeb Al Yami of Hartford and 25-year-old Jaser Daham Alrakah of Springfield were both studying in local colleges in the state.
Investigations are still under process to determine what had occurred on the day of the tragic events.
