RIYADH: Australian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Ridwaan Jadwat has hailed as a “true hero” a student from the Kingdom who risked his life to save a stranger from drowning.
Jadwat said he had been “delighted” to welcome Ahmed Al-Mohaimeed to the Australian Embassy in Riyadh to congratulate him on the courageous act.
“Ahmed received an Australian Bravery Award for his heroism in January 2018, when he jumped into the Yarra River (in Victoria) and rescued a man who was drowning. Ahmed is a true hero,” the envoy tweeted.
