Mr Murphy revealed that there weren’t any camel tracks around and it seemed that the animal had been trapped there for some time. He told the media outlet that the camel was stuck in what looked like quicksand. 

Luckily, Mr Murphy and Ms Wilson had a shovel in the boot of their car. They got to work straight away, following which a group of locals joined them and helped them with the digging. 

The couple said that the camel’s two front feet had been tied together, restricting its movements and making the rescue attempt all the more arduous. “It was made a little trickier because the camel understandably kept wriggling but it didn’t have full use of its front legs,” Mr Murphy said. However, he further went on to add that about 15 people were involved in helping to dig the camel out.

Mr Murphy added that the owners of the camel were very grateful and thanked the couple for their efforts.
