Abu Dhabi: Two Emirati men in a critical medical condition following a traffic accident were transported by the Abu Dhabi police air wing to the Shaikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) in the capital, the Ministry of Interior said in a statement on Sunday.

The two crash victims were in really bad shape and their condition was fast deteriorating when a call was made to central operations department which prompted the air wing to carry out the air-lift.

The helicopter, with medical equipment on board, stabilised the condition of the injured men before transferring them to SKMC.
