Three men rescued after getting lost in RAK wadi

The men called police at 9pm on Wednesday after becoming lost

Three men were rescued by Ras Al Khaimah Police after getting lost in a wadi.

The men, all of Asian origin and in their 30s, called police at 9pm on Wednesday after becoming lost after dark.

A rescue team hurried to the site after pinpointing their location.

“The area was very rugged and was hard to reach but the rescue team managed to save them,” said Brig Dr Mohammed Al Humaidi, director-general of the central operations room for RAK Police.

“They were medically examined and were all in good health.”

Police urged the public to be extra cautious when hiking, especially in rugged areas. They asked people not to venture too far into the mountains or valleys particularly at night to ensure their safety.
