An Asian national died on Thursday when his vehicle fell from the third storey of parking at the Dubai Airport Cargo Village as he was reversing the vehicle to park it.

According to Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazrouei, Director of Traffic Department at the Dubai Police, a tipoff was received by the Command and Control centre at the General Directorate of Operations at around 8:00am on Thursday alerting that a car had fallen from the third storey at the Cargo Village.

Immediately after receiving the tipoff, the police patrols  rushed to the scene where it was found that the car fell when it was being driven backwards, resulting in the death of the driver and damage to the car.

Mazrouei added investigations were under way to find out the main reasons for the incident.

Dubai Police affirmed that the negative and wrong behaviour which distracts some of the drivers' attention cause serious accidents, deaths, injuries and material losses.

Police called on motorists to abide by traffic rules and regulations, so as to avoid the risk of traffic accidents, resulting in injuries and loss of life and property.
