Dubai airport employee hailed for saving passenger's life

A Dubai Airports employee has been commended for his quick thinking which helped save the life of a first-time Pakistani visitor to Dubai who suffered a heart attack.

After spotting the passenger passed out on the floor at Dubai International Airport last week, Talal Al Hubeishi, an operations officer at the airport, resuscitated Mohammed Sadiq by administering CPR until paramedics arrived, state news agency WAM reported on Thursday.

Representatives from Dubai Airports, including Mohammed Al Dewani, head of Terminal 1 and Al Hubeishi visited Rashid Hospital on Wednesday to check on Sadiq's health, who is recovering well.

"I didn’t know the man who saved my life until I met him this morning, and now I will never forget his face. I feel immense gratitude for Talal," said Sadiq in comments published by WAM.
