Sheikh Hamdan, who is at the wheel, is also seen using a tractor to pull his own car. As the cables fixed between his car and the truck breaks, the crown prince asks the lorry driver to unload all the sand, which he terms as the “last resort”.

Then the truck is pulled out of the sand with the truck driver seen shaking hands with the Crown Prince.

I follow Sheikh Hamdan on Instagram and it's such a joy to look at his pics and videos. he seriously is a legend! every prince, king, president, minister etc. should take Sheikh Hamdan as an example. What a amazing human being and Dubai is blessed to have a jewel like him even more so since he is the crown prince.
