Aj­man Civil De­fence de­scribed two women as hero­ines after they helped to res­cue win­dow clean­ers dur­ing stormy weather on Wed­nes­day.

High winds caused a clean­ing plat­form to start sway­ing but a Moroc­can res­i­dent and another woman from Greece grabbed ca­bles dan­gling from the scaf­fold­ing to stop it from be­ing buf­feted against the build­ing.

They were able to sta­bilise the rig un­til civil de­fence ar­rived on the scene to res­cue the clean­ers.

“The women sus­tained mi­nor in­juries as a re­sult of their heroic act,” said Lt Col Raed Al Zaabi of Aj­man Civil De­fence.

“They re­ceived treat­ment on site while both work­ers were un­harmed.”
