The marine division of the General Directorate of Civil Defence – Ajman rescued an Arab national, 27, from drowning off the beach in Ajman on Monday morning.

According to Lieutenant Humaid Bin Ayaf, Director of Marine Rescue Branch, the marine division received a report that a man was drowning at 6.30am on Monday. The marine division rushed to the place and was able to rescue the man, who was given to the national ambulance for the necessary medical treatment.

Calling on beachgoers to follow the instructions, which ban swimming in restricted areas, Bin Ayaf affirmed that lack of public awareness on the danger of sea currents was a major reason for drowning.

Separately, the Sharjah Misdemeanour Court postponed a case in which three Asians were accused of assaulting and beating up another with blunt objects during a brawl. The victim sustained various wounds, the Court heard.  The victim said that due to a difference between him and the suspects, they fought him with hands and a knife, resulting in an injury in the back as a result of the stabbing.

During the trial, the victim identified the first defendant, pointing out that he was accompanied by others, while the second and third defendants in custody were not at the time of the beatings, according to the victim.  On confronting the accused with the charges, he denied that he had beaten the plaintiff with a knife, and that other people had assaulted him with a knife.

The victim refused the possibility of reconciling with the first defendant.

The Sharjah Misdemeanour Court ordered the postponement of the hearing to Sept.22 for the verdict, and the release of the second and third accused, with the continued detention of the first accused.
