Dad Lets Daughter Drown in Dubai So She’s Not ‘Dishonored’ by Male Lifeguards
Before I even skim articles about this, I can only assume the father in question is a Muslim, though I can see some idiotic American Christian patriarchalists and complementarians finding this a tempting thing to do.
Muslims – like Christian complementarians – have some very backwards, sexist ideals about how they think women ought to live life and behave, especially in regards to clothing or whom they date and marry, or if they marry at all.
This news story was first published in 2015, but I didn’t see it until 2022, not that I remember.

The father of a 20-year-old woman let her drown in Dubai rather than let lifeguards rescue her.
The father preferred she drown rather than be dishonored by getting touched by male rescuers, reports Emirates 24 News.
Lt. Col. Ahmed Burqibah, deputy director of the Dubai police’s search and rescue team, confirmed the incident happened.
The dad had taken his wife and children “to the beach when suddenly, the 20-year-old girl started drowning and screaming for help,” Burqibah said.
“Two rescue men were at the beach and they rushed to help the girl. However,” said Burqibah, the man “considered that if these men touched his daughter, then this would dishonor her. It cost him the life of his daughter.”
Burqibah did not say when the incident took place.
…The woman drowned and the father was arrested for not allowing rescuers to do their job.
