H.H. Sheikh Mohamed praises police officer for helping stranded driver


The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi has applauded a police officer in Sharjah for assisting a motorist after his vehicle broke down in the middle of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road last week.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is also the Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, took to his official Twitter handle to praise Sergeant Ahmed Hassan Al Hammadi for his timely help.

Being helpful and doing good deeds are values deeply rooted in the UAE society, His Highness highlighted, adding that the officer demonstrated these values through his "exceptional actions" while helping Zain Al Abidin, who also expressed his gratitude in return.

"I would like to thank them both and all those serving on the frontlines - we salute you."

The incident came to light last week after Al Abidin decided to thank the officer publicly through a Sharjah radio station.

He recalled how Sergeant Ahmed parked his patrol car behind his vehicle to shield him from other vehicles on the busy highway, and even paid the charges for the tow truck.
