Dubai Police raced to the rescue after a crane operator suffered a heart attack in Jebel Ali. And, scarily, it happened while he was in his crane 65 metres above the ground.
To add to the drama, rescuers had to climb up to the top of the crane after the crane’s electric lift broke down. Thankfully technicians were able to repair it by the time paramedics reached the man. The police then had to join together and lift the man to safety and into a waiting ambulance.

The crane operator was unloading container ships at Jebel Ali Port when he was hit by the heart attack 65m above ground, the equivalent of 13 floors.
“Joined by first responders from Dubai Civil Defence, Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, and the Land Rescue team at Dubai Police, our teams leapt into action to save the man in distress,” said Lt Col Yahya Muhammad, head of the Difficult Missions Section at Dubai Police’s Department of Transport and Rescue.
What an incredible rescue!
Dubai bus driver to the rescue
There was more good news recently as a Dubai bus driver returned a lost bag containing AED250,000.
Noor Khan found a bag containing AED250,000 on his bus at the end of a trip.
He immediately told his supervisor and the bag was eventually reunited with its careless owner.
And the bus driver was praised by the RTA‘s Director-General Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer.
“We pride ourselves on having employees with such great disciplines and fidelity at the RTA. This bus driver took the proper action by handing over the bag to the Buses Supervisor. This attitude fully reflects the confidence in the loyalty and honesty of the employees of our public transit means that commute hundreds of thousands of riders every day. This behaviour boosts public confidence when using public transport means in Dubai,” said Al Tayer.
