Father Let Daughter Drown Rather Than Be Rescued By Male Lifeguards Because It Would ‘Dishonour’ Her

Dubai: The woman drowned after swimming off the coast of
Dubai when her father prevented her being rescued
A woman drowned off the coast of Dubai when her father
stopped male lifeguards trying to save her because it would ‘dishonour’ her. The
man reportedly grappled with lifeguards as they tried to save the 20-year-old
woman as he did not want them to touch her.
By the time the lifeguards had restrained the father, the
woman had drowned.
Speaking to Emirates 24/7, Lt Col Ahmed Burqibah, from Dubai
Police, said: “The Asian father took his wife and kids to the beach for
picnic and fun.

“The kids were swimming in the beach when suddenly, the
20-year-old girl started drowning and screaming for help.
“Two rescue men were at the beach, and they rushed to
help the girl.
“However, there was one obstacle which prevented them
from reaching the girl and helping her.
“This obstacle was the belief of this Asian man who
considered that if these men touched his daughter, then this would dishonour
her. It cost him the life of his daughter.’
“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.
“She died unfortunately, at a time when she had a
chance to live, especially that the rescue men were so close to her to pull her
out of the water.’
The woman’s father was arrested and faces criminal charges.
“He was prosecuted and sued by the concerned
authorities,” said Lt Col Burqibah.
