Sharjah: Two expatriates were honoured by the Sharjah Police on Thursday for saving a young boy who was found dangling from a window of a high-rise residential building in Sharjah.

Nepalese expat Mohammed Rahmatullah, a father of two, and Adel Abdul Hafeez received praise from authorities for rescuing Farouq Mohammad, 5, who was dangerously clinging to a window ledge from the 13th floor on Tuesday morning.

‘Boy’s safety is the reward’

The duo appreciated the recognition and said: “It was not about the recognition and reward but the appreciation from the authorities and ensuring the boy’s safety that will live with us forever.”

In a press release on Thursday, the Sharjah Police said: “The honour came in appreciation of their magnanimity, their sense of security, and their heroic role in successfully dealing with the prevention of the fall of a child from a building in the emirate.”
