She was rescued by the Dubai Police.

A car was pulled out by the rescue teams of Dubai Police after it was accidentally driven into the sea in Al Mamzar Creek.

According to Ajman News, the woman motorist was in the parking lot when she received some bad piece of news over her phone, and pushed on the accelerator by mistake. She forgot to use the hand brake.

Lieutenant-Colonel Ali Abdullah Al Qassib Al Naqbi, director of Maritime Rescue Division at Dubai Police, said that the 41-year-old Arab woman didn't sustain any injury, as she escaped from the car before it slid into the sea water. He added that she was parking her vehicle near the beach, and the incident happened due to lack of attention.

On Friday, the Dubai Police received a report at 4.30pm about the incident, and rescue teams swung into action. They dragged out the vehicle after it went 30 meters inside the sea.

Al Naqbi called on all motorists to drive with caution and pay attention while driving for their own safety and that of others.
