Three Emiratis have been rescued after they got stranded in Abu Dhabi’s desert for the past two days.

The National Search and Rescue Center (NSRC), in coordination with Abu Dhabi Police, carried out a search and rescue mission for the Emiratis stuck in the Razeen desert.

The police operations room received the information about stranded Emiratis, who were in a state of fatigue and exhaustion, because of soaring temperatures and dehydration.

A rescue team from NSRC was able to spot and rescue the Emiratis.

They were immediately airlifted to the Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City for treatment. The rescue operation was carried out by observing all Covid-19 precautionary and preventive measures.

I am a newspaperman from the emirate of Abu Dhabi. A journalist at heart. I get my stories from the streets. A south Indian born in the Hindi heartland, I easily connect with people from different nationalities and cultures. I am calm like a monk, sensitive and very patient reporter. On the ground, I cover a range of topics related to community, health, embassy, tourism, transport, business and sports. I will go out on a leg to do whatís right and stand by what I believe in.
