The Dubai Police Air Wing have recently saved the life of an Indian woman who had fallen sick in a resort at the Dubai World Islands. The swift response of the Dubai Police Air Wing ensured the patient was urgently and safely transferred to Rashid Hospital for immediate medical intervention.
According to Colonel Khalfan Al Mazroui, Deputy Director of Dubai Police Air Wing, the Command and Control Centre at Dubai Police had received an emergency call reporting a woman, in her twenties, who had fallen sick at the Anantara World Islands Dubai Resort. He explained that rescue teams could not reach the offshore facility due to unstable weather conditions, including low visibility, strong winds and high waves.
"The visibility was very low at only 1500 metres, while wind speed was at 40 knots causing high waves and strong currents," Col. Al Mazroui explained. "A team of paramedics were immediately dispatched on board Dubai Police's helicopter and provided the necessary first aid to the patient before airlifting her to Rashid Hospital," he continued. Col. Al Mazroui reaffirmed that Dubai Police Air Wing routinely carries out specialised humanitarian and community tasks such as providing ambulance services, search and rescue missions, and road monitoring.
The deputy director of Dubai Police Air Wing urged public members to contact Dubai Police in emergencies on 999 or send distress requests (SOS) via Dubai Police's smart app.
