Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has extended financial help to a Russian woman whose mother died after a sudden cardiac arrest in Dubai during a family trip.
Sheikh Mohammed, also Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, has arranged for all expenses incurred by Anastasia Popova to be covered, state news agency WAM reported on Saturday.
The humanitarian gesture relates to all expenses incurred by Popova for the treatment of her mother in a private hospital in Dubai as well as the cost of transporting her body back to her homeland and flight tickets for the family’s travel back to Russia.
WAM said Popova incurred $228,700 (Dh840,000) for the treatment for her mother in hospital after she collapsed during her family’s vacation in Dubai due to a rupture in her heart.
Despite surgical treatment, the elderly woman passed away, leaving the Russian tourist with a large hospital bill.
