A man lying in a Saudi hospital tweeted how he was miserable and lonely after being partially paralyzed due to an accident. The patient gave the hospital’s name and his room number, adding how he was on his own and missing company.
Ibrahim probably wasn’t expecting what happened next - within hours, there was a queue of people outside his room, all waiting to meet him.
