A Dubai Police officer rescued a bird which appeared injured on a side street in the city recently.
In a short video shared by a Tik Tok user, the officer cradled what appeared to be a small falcon in a white cloth before moving it to safety.
The man behind the camera praised the officer for helping the bird that appeared in distress.
“The face of Dubai’s humanity … that bird was really struggling for life in this hot weather. That police officer took him to a new life. Big salute [to] you sir,” a user called shubbu___dxb___cnn captioned the short clip.
A second video was shared moments later showing the bird moving about on its feet.
The clip comes just days after four men were awarded Dh50,000 each by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, for their efforts in saving a pregnant cat that fell from a balcony.
They were seen catching the cat in a blanket after she hopped over a second-floor balcony barrier and plummeted towards the street below in Murar, Deira.
