NAJRAN: Authorities in Najran are investigating a case where a man beat his wife until she became brain-dead. The daily Al-Madinah reported yesterday that the man beat his wife one day prior to Eid instead of presenting her with the season’s greetings. During the beating the woman choked on her tongue, which blocked oxygen to her brain. The woman is now in intensive care in a coma.
The technical affairs assistant at the Najran Red Crescent, Muhannad Al-Jarallah, said that they received a call the day before yesterday from a child reporting that his mother fell ill in the house and they had to move right away to the location. They performed first aid to the woman and then transferred her to King Khaled Hospital in Najran to receive medical treatment.
