Muscat: Despite the repeated warnings from the Royal Oman Police (ROP) to drivers against venturing out to low-lying areas and crossing overflowing wadis during rain, a video grab shows here how a driver wades his trailer through an overflowing Wadi Hebi Ahen in Sohar risking his life.

The vehicle, which succeeded in traversing half of the crossing, later drifted downwards due to strong currents. However, the driver, who managed to get out of the vehicle, was seen sitting on the drifting trailer. The video, which was uploaded on July 3, 2014, has received more than 34,000 views by Saturday.
