The courage and quick wit of a Saudi player, who managed to save a child who almost caused his father's car to burn while he was inside, earned the respect of many Saudis on the social media sites.

A video clip that was widely circulated showed the former player of Al-Fayhaa Club, Al-Hilal and Al-Taawon, Malik Abdul Monaim, rushing to a car lined up in one of the neighborhoods of the city of Zulfi, to rescue a child inside a car as he was playing with fire.

The video shows Abdul takes out burnt tissues from inside the car in which a young child was present.

His father was not in the car.

The child burned the tissues and almost caused a disaster.

As soon as the player took out the flaming tissues from inside the car, the father ran back to check on his son.

The father cut the ignition and thanked Abdul.

In addition, many social media users issued warnings to parents and families, not to leave children alone in such cases, and to keep any sharp tools or flammable items out of children's reach, in order to preserve their safety and lives.
