Emirati youth killed as vehicle flips over
Abu Dhabi - He was a friendly and humble young man and everyone loved him.
An Emirati student was killed after his 4-wheel drive flipped over in Al Ain on Saturday. Sultan Saeed Khalfan Al Shamsi, who was in his early 20s, was killed instantly. The cause of the crash couldn't immediately be established as the police haven't released the details.
Al Shamsi's aunt said the young man was a college student. "The family is devastated by the sudden death. He was a friendly and humble young man and everyone loved him."
Al Shamsi's funeral prayer was performed at the Martyr Omar Al Maqbali mosque. He was laid to rest at the Umm Ghafah cemetery in Al Ain after the Isha prayer.
The news of Al Shamsi's death spread on social media, with some people confusing him for a Federal National Council (FNC) candidate, which, in fact, wasn't the case.
An FNC candidate from Abu Dhabi, Ameena Al Mazrouei, told Khaleej Times that she received information about the Emirati's death, but confirmed he was not an FNC member. "This is a tragic news. But he was not among the list of FNC candidates from Abu Dhabi."
