RAK Civil Defence have on Thursday released a video of an operation to free a 13-year-old boy's ring finger from a large nut.
Brig Mohammed Abdullah Al Zaabi, director of the Civil Defense Department in Ras Al Khaimah, said in a statement on the Instagram account belonging to the emergency services in the emirate that the boy was playing with the screw when it became stuck on his finger.
Family members tried to free him from it, but failed and when the finger began to turn blue they visited Civil Defence, some time after midnight.
“They went to a hospital first, but the hospital told them they had to go to Civil Defence,” said the Brig.
He stressed that the nut was removed successfully and in record time, without jeopardizing the child’s finger.
