The parents tried to remove the child’s arm from the drain to no avail. That’s when they called authorities for emergency assistance.
The police rushed to the scene located on a villa on Dubai-Al Ain Road.
The rescue operation took 2 hours as they had to manually drain the pool, switch off the electricity, and break open a portion of the pool to free the child’s arm.
Fortunately, no injuries were found on the boy and an ambulance was at the site.
The incident serves as a warning and reminder to parents to always monitor their children when they are in the pool. Also to make sure that the children are not left unsupervised.
