JEDDAH – Five Indian Grade 12 students are in a critical condition in hospital after the car they were driving in spun out of control and crashed into a tree on Friday morning.

Four are studying at the International Indian School-Jeddah (IISJ) and the fifth student is at Delhi Public School.

All five students had taken their Central Board of Secondary Education exams on Friday morning at the IISJ in Rehab district and were heading home when the accident occurred.

“All five are on ventilators,” said IISJ Principal Syed Masood Ahmad who had rushed to the scene immediately after receiving the news. “Two of them are being treated in the intensive care unit at Al-Jeddani Hospital and the other three are at Solaiman Fakeeh Hospital.”

The car struck the median and then crashed into a tree. The vehicle was a wreck. Rescuers had to cut the unconscious students out of the mangled car.

“No other car was involved in the accident,” said the principal. He called on the community to pray for the students.

“The two students who have been brought to our hospital are in bad shape,” said Iqbal Musani, a senior doctor at Al-Jeddani Hospital. “They have multiple injuries to their heads, hands and legs. One student has a brain hemorrhage and that is a major cause for concern. We are doing our best,” he told Arab News. — ArabNews
