The crown prince of Dubai has proved he’s not against getting his royal hands dirty after using his luxury jeep to help rescue a stranded truck driver bogged in sand.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was filmed towing the loaded truck out of the Dubai sand with his Mercedes-AMG G63.
The 34-year-old prince’s shiny vehicle, which retail for about $180,000, immediately stood out in video of the rescue.
As the 12-wheeler truck laboured under the stress of sand, dark smoke billing out its exhaust, the prince did his best to shift it to safety.
After a series of impressive wheel spins, sand skids, a snapped tow lead and solid teamwork, the truck was pulled clear. Video of the rescue was published to Instagram last Thursday.
Before making his way back to his palace, the royal, known to many as “Fazza”, stepped out of his car to inspect the truck and greet the driver.
“Fazza” is the son of United Arab Emirates prime minister Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He is an heir to the family’s estimated $50 billion fortune.
