DUBAI // The body of a man who drowned after being pulled into the water while fishing on the Jebel Ali coast has been recovered. The 50-year-old man was standing on the shore with two friends on Tuesday when he was pulled into the water. He was reported missing at around 6pm. Dubai Police said high waves prevented rescue teams from finding him. His body was recovered after it was washed into a rocky shoal the following day.
