A five-year-old boy has survived a fall from the third floor of a building in Dammam, in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, a local news portal reported on Friday.

According to Sabq, the boy was playing in their flat when he opened the window and fell.

His family took him to Dammam Central Hospital where doctors told them after carrying out tests that he was fine.

Doctors kept him at the hospital to ensure there would be no complications, Sabq said.
