Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum was recorded on video helping a pickup truck pull a stuck tractor trailer out of the sand with the assistance of his handy, AMG-powered Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen.

In the clip, uploaded to YouTube last week, we see the Sheikh inside a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG with the car strapped between the stuck truck and a pickup that is also helping dislodge the trailer. 

Even with the two trucks yanking away at the stuck vehicle, the sheikh and the other Good Samaritan fail to pull it out of the sand. In fact, it appears that the strap behind the G-Wagen even managed to snap from the pressure.

After switching out that strap, replacing the pickup truck in front of the G-Wagen with a tractor, and dropping some of the load from the tractor trailer, the team manages to get the rig moving.

According to the Daily Mail, Sheikh Hamdan will be a future leader in Dubai. He is also apparently a diver of both the skies and seas, and spends his team writing romantic poetry and caring for animals—when he's not helping trucks out of sand. What a nice guy.
