A six-year-old girl was rescued after she fell into a 15-metre-deep well, the UAE’s Minister of Interior has said.

Taking to Twitter, Lt.-General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan thanked the Civil Defence team in Dibba Al Fujairah for rescuing the girl in Wasit.

A video that the Ministry of Interior shared shows a civil defence personnel descending into a narrow well. He emerges minutes later, with the girl.

The video then cuts into a shot of the smiling girl receiving treatment.

Sheikh Saif is also seen visiting the girl at the hospital and enquiring after her health.
