Car takes a terrifying plunge into Dubai Creek – and the driver swims away!

A driver amazingly swam away from his car after it took a plunge into the Dubai Creek on Tuesday night. The Dubai Police Maritime rescue team were quickly on the scene to recover the car and help the man to safety.

The driver lost control of his car just before midnight and plunged into the creek. The Police got the call at 11.53pm and were on-site within four minutes.


The driver was amazingly unhurt despite his car taking a plunge in the Dubai Creek. Aside from a few minor injuries, he was able to climb a nearby ladder to safety.

The car was not so lucky and was found 37ft down in the creek and 130m from the crash site. The upside-down car was then lifted out of the Creek by crane.
