The Royal Oman Police on Sunday shared a video of a person being rescued by a helicopter after his car was stuck in a flooded wadi.

The incident took place in Dhank valley, Al Dhahirah Governorate in the Sultanate.

The video shows a  rescue official descending from a helicopter onto the roof of a car that's nearly submerged in the flood waters. The official quickly tethers himself to the motorist before signalling the pilot to lift them. Moments later they are both dangling in the air while the helicopter flies towards dry land.
