Two Asians have been rescued from drowning by the Sharjah Municipality’s maritime rescue teams in cooperation with the rescue teams of the Sharjah Police.
The incident happened in an area where swimming is prohibited due to sea currents that pose a danger to individuals.
The Municipality explained that its rescue teams immediately dealt with the incident as soon as it was alerted to it.
It said that those drowning incidents occurred after a person started swimming with his family in an area where swimming was prohibited.
There were signboards in place indicating that the area was not designated for the practice of swimming, the Municipality confirmed.
It provides on its beaches more than 58 well-qualified rescuers who are trained to deal with cases of drowning or any other injuries that beachgoers may expose themselves to, the Municipality added.
It also said that the safety and security standards are met at all the emirate’s beaches, where signboards that include instructions for going to the beach are installed, apart from plastic barriers that determine the areas where swimming is permitted.
The Municipality further said that the municipal supervision and inspection teams continuously patrol the beaches to monitor any violations.
There are also patrols equipped with jet skis to deal with various emergencies both offshore and in the areas designated for swimming.
The Sharjah City Municipality urges all community members to adhere to the instructions when going to the beach, adhere to all regulations and preventive measures, swim in areas designated for it, and follow the instructions of inspectors and rescuers, especially while getting out of the sea when swimming time is over.
