His body was found stuck in the rocks.
The body of an Asian worker who went missing in Ras Al Khaimah during last week’s heavy rains was found in Oman on Thursday. The discovery was made by local search and rescue teams alongside the RAK Police.
The man was reported missing, according to Major-General Ali Abdullah bin Alwan Al Nuaimi, General Commander of the RAK Police.
“He proved to have been dragged away by the flooded valley since Saturday, January 11, following which intensive search operations was launched.”
Teams from the RAK police, search and rescue teams, armed forces, air wing section, K9 squad, and ambulance searched for the missing corpse for six continuous days, he added.
“The body was found stuck in the rocks of the Ghamdha area in Oman,” he disclosed, affirming that RAK police spare no effort to provide help to anyone in need for help.
“The public are urged to avoid slippery and flooded roads and valleys for fear of such sorrowful incidents.”
Brigadier Dr Mohammad Saeed Al Humaidi, Director General of the Central Operations, RAK police, and Chairman of the Search and Rescue Team, said the corpse was found on Thursday afternoon.
“The Central Operations Room of RAK Police was alerted by the Oman Police that they found the corpse stuck between the rocks of the Ghamdha beach who was mostly the reported missing one.”
The RAK police went to the reported area accompanied by the sponsor of the dead man to verify his identity, he added. “He was proved to be the missing one, and was shifted to the morgue of the hospital for burial by relatives.”
“The RAK police search and rescue teams surveyed the entire area but could not locate him despite the incessant search during day and night, he pointed out.
“The strong rainwater pushed the body of the deceased out of the dam to the beach which moved the corpse to Ghamdha area in Oman.”
