Mourners stand at the fresh grave of Huthaifa Salaheen, the only son of a blind father, who was hit by a speeding car in the first week of February in the town of Yarqa, near Salt, while accompanying his father, a schoolteacher, to the mosque. He was proclaimed dead Thursday morning after 17 days in a coma. The tragic death of Huthaifa fuelled a public outcry against road accidents that killed more than 7,000 people and injured 175,000 in the past decade

I meant to say a only son,I wonder if he has daughters.

A father sits in complete darkness and grieves.

I had a chance to meet Dr. Abdulkareem alsalaheen ( abu Hutheifah) last weekend. He had someone to help him and he was a very talkative and well rounded person. God bless him and his family. I was so happy to know that he knew about Amman voice blog posting about the death of his son Hutheifah, god bless him.
