The man sleeping above is one of the princes of Saudi Arabia named Prince Alwaleed bin Khalid bin Talal, also known as ‘Sleeping Prince’.
He has been in a coma for 14 years in a specialized hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
It was gathered that the young prince had an accident in his car while driving in London in 2005. He was just 18 years old then.
He had gone to London to study at the military college when the accident knocked him unconscious.
In 2015, doctors decided to disconnect the devices/life support machines but his father refused the suggestion in the hope that a miracle would occur and wake up.
His father once said, “Allah who saved his soul for more than a decade now is able to bring him back to life.”
In 2017, his health condition had severely deteriorated but his family kept their son under doctors’ care.
Sometime in May 2019, the prince moved his head from the right to the left side and back.
Alwaleed’s sister Rima bint Talal shared a video of her brother while moving his head.

This was like a glimmer of hope for the royal family and a sign for the prince’s stable health state.
The prince is a member of the Saudi royal family born in 1962 and he is the full-brother of Prince Al Waleed bin Talal.
May God restore him back to life.
