A brave group from Hatta Police Station and the Air Wing Center of Dubai Police rescued a British tourist who had become very tired and had high blood pressure while trekking up a mountain in the Wadi Hub region of Hatta.

Dubai Police Helicopter Saves British Tourist

In a remarkable display of cooperation and swift action, the Dubai Police Air Wing Center, in collaboration with the Brave Squad stationed at the Hatta Police Station, executed a daring rescue mission to save a British tourist facing a medical emergency while hiking in the rugged terrain of the Wadi Hub area in Hatta. The tourist, experiencing high blood pressure and severe fatigue, found himself stranded in the mountainous region, prompting an urgent response from the authorities.

The Director of the Air Wing Center, Colonel Pilot Instructor Ali Al Muhairi, orchestrated the operation with precision and efficiency following a distress call from the Al Shuja'an squad in the Hatta region, reporting the condition of the British tourist and emphasizing the necessity of a helicopter evacuation due to the challenging terrain and the time-consuming nature of a ground rescue.

Immediate Action and Coordination

Colonel Al Muhairi wasted no time upon receiving the distress call. Coordinating with his team, led by Colonel Ahmed Al Marri and Colonel Issam bin Hafez, and accompanied by a skilled crew of paramedics from the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, the rescue mission was swiftly set into motion. Utilizing state-of-the-art air navigation systems, the team accurately pinpointed the tourist's location amidst the rugged mountain terrain, ensuring a targeted and effective response.

Navigating through challenging mountainous terrain, the helicopter team faced formidable obstacles in reaching the stranded tourist. However, their determination and expertise prevailed as they successfully maneuvered the aircraft to a position in close proximity to the tourist.

Despite the rugged landscape, the brave members of the rescue squad sprang into action, employing specialized equipment, including a rescue crane, to safely lift the tourist aboard the helicopter.

With the tourist securely aboard the helicopter, the team initiated the journey to Hatta Hospital, where urgent medical attention awaited. The timely intervention and swift execution of the rescue mission proved instrumental in ensuring the tourist received the necessary medical treatment without delay. Colonel Al Muhairi expressed satisfaction with the outcome, confirming that the tourist's health had significantly improved following the administration of treatment.

The successful rescue mission in Hatta stands as a testament to the preparedness, professionalism, and collaborative efforts of the Dubai Police Air Wing Center and the Brave Squad. Emergency response teams play a critical role in safeguarding public safety and well-being due to their unwavering commitment to saving lives, even in the most challenging circumstances.

As tourists continue to explore the natural wonders of Hatta and beyond, the dedication of these brave men and women ensures that help is always within reach, no matter the terrain or adversity faced.
