Dubai Municipality rescued 392 people from drowning on swimming pools and beaches in the emirates in the past three years.

Mohammad Abdul Rahman Al Awadi, director of Public Parks and Horticulture Department, said lifeguards rescue at least two people from drowning every week.

He said only one person died off a drowning case on Dubai beaches in 2014. The other two deaths are related to heart attacks.

“These accidents took place at Al Mamzar Beach Park, Jumeirah Beach Park, Mushrif swimming pools and Hatta pool,” Gulf News quoted Al Awadi as saying.

Al Awadi said drowning cases in Dubai are not rampant because the Municipality has distributed “all requirements for rescue operations at beaches and swimming pools”.

Recently, Dubai Municipality unveiled an automatic recovery device that helps in reviving victim’s heart immediately even before ambulances arrive.

“This improves the chances by 60 percent of saving the life of the person who was rescued from drowning,” Al Awadi said.

He added Dubai lifeguards are equipped with water bikes, jet skis, first aid kits, defibrillator and medical equipment.
