Pakistani Consulate honours RAK Police rescuers

Using a helicopter, police team plucked trapped family from deep valley in Jebel Jais

Ras Al Khaimah: A Ras Al Khaimah Police rescue team recently saved a Pakistani family from tragedy after their car plunged into a valley in Jebel Jais.

Major Tareq Al Sharhan, head of the Emergency Department at Ras Al Khaimah Police, told Gulf News that the effort saved a man and his wife in their 50s and their son in his 30s.

The car plunged into the valley while negotiating a curve prompting the rescue team to use a helicopter to reach the family.

All of them were airlifted from the scene and transported to the hospital as they sustained moderate injuries.

The family lives in another emirate and visited Ras Al Khaimah during the weekend, he said.

Brigadier Abdullah Khamis Al Hadidi, deputy chief of Ras Al Khaimah Police, received a delegation from the Pakistani Consulate General in Dubai. The delegation honoured the rescue team that saved the Pakistani family.

The delegation, represented by Saulat Saqib, community welfare counsellor, and Nazik Farouq, public relations officer at the consulate, extolled the rescue team’s outstanding efforts to pluck the trapped family to safety from the deep valley.
