Maldives Ports Limited (MPL) has praised one of its workers for his quick response to a fire at a garage near the Male’ Commercial Harbor.


A video of the incident, which took place earlier Thursday, has gone viral on social media.

The video shows a motorcycle on fire in a garage. Police officers are at the scene but Adam Shazeel, a worker from MPL’s Health and Safety Department, is the first to respond. He comes with a fire extinguisher and puts out the fire.

In a tweet commending Shazeel’s actions, MPL noted their team members are periodically trained to attend such emergency situations.

“We will continue to train and provide our team members with the necessary skills to make our Port Operations and surrounding areas safe for everyone,” said MPL.
