Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum surprised a Pakistani expat Abdul Ghafoor Abdul Hakeem by giving him a call, reported Khaleej Times. 

Ghafoor, who is a delivery rider, impressed Sheikh Hamdan with his act of kindness that was posted by someone on social media. 

In the viral video, he was seen removing two concrete bricks from busy traffic. 

Sheikh Hamdan then posted the video on his own official Twitter account in order to find the Good Samaritan.

"An act of goodness in Dubai to be praised. Can someone point me to this man?" he captioned the video.

Sheikh Hamdan called the man saying, "Hello? This is Sheikh Hamdan.”

“I could not believe my ears,” Ghafoor told Khaleej Times excitedly.

He said that the Crown Prince thanked him for what he had done and vowed to meet him when he was back in the country.

After he found him, he posted on his Instagram and thanked him publicly.

"You are one of a kind. We will meet soon!” his story said.
