A Russian hiker has been rescued after he fell from a mountain in Ras Al Khaimah, according to the National Search and Rescue Centre of the National Guard.

The authority released a video clip of the rescue, which was done in coordination with Ras Al Khaimah Police.

Authorities said the injured Russian was located in the Wadi Al Qor area. A rescue team on a helicopter was sent to find and evacuate him.
