Thailand cave rescue.

Recommended Posts

Looks like they have started the attempt to get the team out. (if media can be believed) 

Cant begin to imagine how terrified these boys would be, not even knowing how to swim. The instinct to survive is strong, but I'm not sure how I would go diving in the dark and having to navigate narrow tunnels under water.

My wife is Thai, and being Bhuddist she is convinced they will all get out alive because the Monks said so. I have severe doubts it can be done safely for all of the group. For once i hope she is right and i am wrong.

Good luck to all involved.

I have been transfixed by this story since the beginning.

I am an experienced diver but cannot imagine negotiating such a complicated cave system as this.

I hope your wife is right Ding. It sounds as though they have the right experts in place and have thought the options through thoroughly.

The rescue team are heroes. I hope Mother Nature holds off those heavy rains and the boys, their coach and the rescue team all get out safely.

6 out now according to reports.

I love the way the Thais are handling the media during this whole ordeal. Nothing to get expectations too high, and even the news of each rescue isnt officially announced until the days work is completed. The lack of information has also meant less mistakes by the media in their usual haste to be first.

Brilliant.

Hope every single person ( victims and rescuers, who are absolute bloody heroes ) makes it out safely.

8 Boys confirmed rescued with 5 people left to save.

It would be great to have all out today, but the last one might have to wait an extra day to see the sun. I would put my money on the coach being the last one out. 

Epic rescue so far and i hope everyone makes it to the finish line.

Every member of the team, and its coach all safely rescued from the cave. 

RIP the brave volunteer Ex- Thai SEAL who died while helping to save the boys and their coach. This was an incredible rescue and one that should be remembered for generations.

Inspirational.

Well done Thailand and all of the international volunteers. You are amazing.

Truly a miracle. The entire rescue team and volunteers are heroes.

Special mention to Dr Richard Harris - the Australian doctor and diving expert with over 30 years of experience who helped to co-ordinate the Thai cave rescue. He was apparently the last person to leave the caves after the final group of soccer boys and their coach were rescued.

He has been described as 'The best, not good - the very best'.

I am so glad your wife was right Ding.

And special thanks to Elon Musk and his unusable toy submarine, which he insisted on taking to Thailand even though 8 of the boys were already out when he turned up.

Musk said Thailand was a beautiful place - so beautiful, in fact, that he left his useless machine at the caves 'just in case someone needs it in the future.' 

What a guy! Thailand will be even more beautiful now!

Sadly, his father passed away last night, Jane, not long after the rescue was completed. 

God (or Buddha) giveth, and God taketh away.

Oh I am so sad to hear that. What a bag of mixed emotions Dr Harris must be carrying. His father would have died a proud man.
