Lt. Col Ahmed Burqibah, Deputy Director of Dubai Police’s Search and Rescue Department was quoted saying, “The Asian father took his wife and kids to the beach for a picnic. The kids were swimming when suddenly the 20-year-old girl started screaming for help.

“Two rescue men were at the beach, and they rushed to help the girl. The father was a tall and strong man. He started pulling and preventing the rescue men and got violent with them. He told them that he prefers his daughter being dead than being touched by a strange man.”
