A day that can be tagged “The day of car-drowning incidents” for Bahrainis as two incidents occurred in one day. The first incident occurred around 10am on the coast of the Nurana Project near Karana village. While the second incident occurred on the beach near Karzakkan village.
Details of the first incident as told by a source to Albilad newspaper indicate that the owner of the car, Ahmed, parked his car at the coast. The source added that Ahmed, who was with his two sons, intended to fish.
The source stated that Ahmed was in the driver’s seat while his two sons collected fishing tools when suddenly the car started to slide towards the coast. The source added that Ahmed could quickly open the car’s window, saved his kids and jumped. He, the source said, watched the waves taking the car away. The source pointed out that Ahmed suffered minor bruises as a result of jumping from the car, while the two children (12 and 14 years old) were not injured except, the source noted, for the panic they went through.
The source pointed out that Ahmed reported the incident to the security authorities who took the necessary measures.
Details of the other incident, as residents of the area told the newspaper’s photographer, indicate that the car was seen and reported floating in the sea near Karzakkan village. Residents added that the incident was reported to the concerned authorities who took the necessary measures.
