A viral video from 2017 shows an SUV pushing away a burning car at a petrol pump, leading to 50 people saved in this instance.

Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Rajban, the man who drove the SUV said, “It was a dramatic scene with many civilians next to the car and others at the nearby ATM machine.

I felt a strong urge to make the scene safe for everyone and I did not hold myself back. I got in my car, drove it to the burning vehicle and pushed it away from the pump to avoid the tragedy waiting to happen.”
