Ajman cleaners rescued from storm
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.”
