AJMAN: Two Asians drowned off the sea in Ajman beach while three Arabs were rescued from the area in separate incidents that took place on Saturday.

This was stated by Colonel Rashid Al Zarri, Director of the Media and Public Relations of Ajman Civil Defence.

“The marine team of the Civil Defence received various drowning reports in separate cases and various rescue teams were dispatched to rescue the drowning swimmers but unfortunately two were dead. Their bodies were taken to Khalifa hospital. The third was transferred to the hospital for treatment.”

Colonel Al Zarri noted that the rescue team has warned swimmers against going out to the sea on Saturday as the seas were rough. Red flags were raised at the beach but those swimmers ignored the warning and went to swim when the waves were high that dragged them away from the seashore.

“Beachgoers should never risk their lives and swim on days where red and black flags are placed on the beach as it’s totally unsafe to swim on these particular days. They should wear the life jackets and never swim in prohibited swimming areas that have clear warning signboards placed. Many swimmers go swimming during late hours at night which is totally wrong and can endanger their lives as visibility is very low and they can be easily pulled from the seashore.” He also advised beachgoers to check the weather forecast before going to the beach to ensure whether it was safe to swim or not.
