Woman defies driving ban

Woman defies driving ban, saves husband?

RIYADH (Reuters) - A Saudi woman defied a ban on women driving to get her husband urgent medical help after he collapsed at the wheel, Al-Watan newspaper said Tuesday.

It said the couple was driving from the eastern city of Dammam to the capital Riyadh Sunday night when the man started having trouble breathing and lost consciousness.

His wife, who had learned to drive on trips to the desert, jumped behind the wheel and drove 10 miles down the motorway to a gas station where he was treated.

"Thanks for saving my life, honey. But I'm afraid we're going to have to stone you now. Nothing personal."
