Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, posted a Story on his Instagram account, hailing the rider’s quick thinking. Posting the viral video, Sheikh Hamdan said: “An act of goodness in Dubai to be praised. Can someone point me to this man?”
A little later, he posted that the “good man” had been found. “Thank you, Abdul Ghafoor, you are one of a kind. We will meet soon!”
Out to deliver an order that day, Abdul Hakeem was waiting at the intersection when he realised the danger the fallen blocks posed. “I saw the blocks but didn’t really think much of it,” he had told Khaleej Times. “As I waited, a taxi went over the block and the driver almost lost control of his car. That is when I realised that it could cause a major accident.
