With words of heartbreak and pain, the father of the young man, “Raed Talq Al-Otaibi,” bid farewell to his 15-year-old son, who drowned with his cousin in a natural basin filled with water in one of the Takhafa mountains north of Afif.
In the details that the father mentioned to Al-Arabiya.net, he said that the mother and her sons went out for a walk in Mount Takhafa, which many people frequent with joy in the rain, indicating that the young people went out for a walk near the mountain without anyone noticing that there was a pool of water in which his son, “Raed” had fallen. His 16-year-old cousin “Mashari” made a desperate attempt to save him, which led to their death together, and with them was his other son, “Zayed” aged 13, who was rescued by civil defense men.
“The two young men were buried during the past two days, and their mothers’ tears did not dry,” he said, adding that he was not with them on this trip, stressing that he would strive “to put nets in the place where the water collects, to ensure that there are no other victims at this site.”
The huge “Takhfa Mountain” plateau, which is considered a park for the people of Qassim and Riyadh, was known. This rocky mountain has more than 6 waterfalls in the rainy seasons, as the regions of the Kingdom live in today, turning the wasteland into plains and valleys where rivers flow.
