A Saudi father of 12 dropped dead just after he was told by the police that his teenage daughter had been caught dating a man.

The 60-year-old father had driven his daughter to the college and returned home, unaware that her boyfriend was waiting for her on the other side.

“When police summoned the father and told him they had caught his daughter with a man, he collapsed… he was rushed to the hospital but was already dead,” ‘Sharq’ newspaper said, adding that the man supported a family of 12 and had suffered from diabetes.

It did not mention where in Saudi Arabia the incident took place.
