DUBAI 30 March 2017: The wheels spin freely, the vehicle skids sideways, but Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, valiantly continues the rescue effort – according to an Instagram video posted on YouTube by The Hiring Door.
We all have read fairytales where a prince in shining armour comes riding a horse to rescue a damsel in distress.
It was no less different for this lorry driver stuck in a desert in Dubai.
A video posted on Instagram shows a fully-loaded lorry stuck in the desert, with Sheikh Hamdan, the Crown Prince of Dubai, trying to pull it out with his Mercedes G series car.
Sheikh Hamdan is himself at the wheel, stepping on the gas, even as tractor pulls his own car from the front.
Unable to pull the lorry, the wheels of Sheikh Hamdan’s vehicle spin freely over the sand, losing traction with the surface, and the car ultimately skids sideways.
Undeterred, Sheikh Hamdan continues his rescue effort until the link between his vehicle and the lorry snaps.
Sheikh Hamdan then comes out of the car to inspect the situation. The video ends with the lorry unloading all the sand it was carrying.
