DUBAI: Dubai’s crown prince came to the rescue of a truck driver whose lorry was stuck in deep sand Wednesday and the footage has gone viral.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was filmed pulling a loaded truck out of the sand with his Mercedes-AMG G63.
In a video posted by Instagram user @adelabid1s, the crown prince joins other vehicles attempting to help the lorry driver.
His car skids and the rope snaps, leading to a change of plans.
The lorry driver empties his load and the truck is eventually pulled out of the sand.
The video ends with the driver and Sheikh Hamdan shaking hands and has received a flurry of praise online.
