The body of an Asian worker who went missing during the heavy showers in Ras Al Khaimah was recovered from Oman, according to the Ras Al Khaimah Police.
The police, in collaboration with the search and rescue teams in Oman, have managed to find the Asian worker's body six days after he went missing.
According to Major-General Ali Abdullah bin Alwan Al Nuaimi, General Commander of the RAK Police, the worker drowned in the flash flood in a valley on January 11. Teams from the RAK police, search and rescue force, armed forces, air wing section, K9 squad and ambulance searched for the man for six days.
"The body was found stuck in the rocks of the Ghamdha beach in Oman," he added.
Brigadier Dr Mohammad Saeed Al Humaidi, director-general of Central Operations, RAK police, and chairman of the Search and Rescue Team, said the body was found on Thursday afternoon.
"The Central Operations Room of the RAK Police was alerted by the Oman Police that they found the body stuck between the rocks of the Ghamdha beach," he added.
The police went to the reported area accompanied by the sponsor of the worker to verify his identity. "The sponsor identified the body, which was shifted to the morgue.
Our search and rescue teams had surveyed the entire area but could not locate him," he pointed out.
"The strong current must have pushed the body out of the dam to the beach," added Brig Al Humaidi.
