His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has extended financial help to a Russian woman whose mother died after a sudden cardiac arrest in Dubai during a family trip.
Anastasia Popova was on vacation with her mother and two daughters when the mother collapsed due to a rupture in her heart. She was rushed to a private hospital, where she died during treatment, leaving Popova with a $228,700 (Dh840,000) bill.
On Saturday, Sheikh Mohammed said he would bear all the medical expenses incurred by the Russian woman. He also said he would bear the costs of repatriating the body and the flight tickets for the family’s travel back to Russia.
