Emirati honoured for helping woman injured in RAK car crash

On Monday the woman was honoured by RAK Police for her courage

Fatima Al Shehhi’s first aid training came back to her when she came across a crash late last week.

Seeing that a woman was badly injured, she called an ambulance and performed first aid.

“When she saw the accident, Ms Al Shehhi did the first aid procedure, helped the woman calm down,” said Col Marwan Al Mansoori, the RAK police head of public relations. “She called the ambulance and went with her to the hospital and took care of her.”

Ms Al Shehhi, who works at the RAK Education Zone, had learned first aid at a course with the RAK Police.

“We like to support people and thank her for what she did,” said Col Al Mansoori.

On Monday, the Emirati woman was praised for her actions by RAK Police.

Maj Gen Ali Al Nuaimi, commander-in-chief of RAK police, Ms Al Shehhi's actions were courageous and "reflected the true qualities of the community."
