The Dubai Police treated 26 scuba divers suffering from decompression sickness known as ‘the bends’ by placing divers inside a decompression chamber located at the Dubai Police Health Centre.
According to Major Ismail Hasan Mahmoud, Director of Oxygenating Treatment at the General Department of Transport and Rescue, the Dubai Police decompression chamber has helped treat amateur divers who fall ill after not decompressing properly from deep ocean diving.
“We’ve treated divers and helped them walk again after they were paralyzed. This is usually a result of not following safety procedures after spending many hours underwater or rising quickly from underwater,” Major Mahmoud explained.
Ocean divers get the bends — which can be fatal — because of not stopping at a series of intervals while resurfacing from water to help the body expel nitrogen build-up in the bloodstream. Decompression sickness describes a condition arising from dissolved gases coming out of solution into bubbles inside the body on depressurisation.
Dubai Police urge divers to call 999 in cases of emergency or call 04- 4166666 during business hours should they need require the services of the decompression chamber.
The Dubai Media Office said, “Dubai Police, in cooperation with Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing, shuts down a tourism camp for one month and issues the organizer a fine of Dhs50,000 for organising a gathering that is not in adherence to the precautionary measures.”

The authority stated, according to the decision on the control of entry and residence of foreigners, that in order to obtain an entry visa to visit a friend or relative, the foreigner coming to the country must be a friend or relative of a citizen, regardless of the degree of kinship, and that the foreigner coming to the country must be a first-degree or first-degree relative of a resident residing in the country.
An official associated with the case said, “Trump will be fingerprinted, a mug shot will be taken, investigators will complete arrest paperwork and do a check to see if he has any outstanding criminal charges or warrants. That all happens away from the public.”
Al Neyadi said on Twitter: “Water is a precious resource in space. It is used to create clean air by separating oxygen from hydrogen, and it is also recycled to provide a continuous supply of clean water."
