Speaking to Khaleej Times yesterday, 79-year-old Noor Ali said he had suffered a heart attack last month. "On getting to know that I am unwell, Shaikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister for Higher Education and Scientific Research, sent a helicopter to transport me from Sharjah's Al Qasimi Hospital to Shaikh Khalifa Hospital in Abu Dhabi where my open heart surgery was done," he said. He is now recuperating in Dubai at his daughter's house. Noor Ali thanked all his well-wishers and the rulers for the support and care offered to him.
