RIP
Former Thai Navy SEAL working to rescue boys dies from lack of oxygen.

'You are our heroes!': Thais rejoice as all boys, coach freed from flooded cave
The world is celebrating the successful rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach who spent over two weeks in a flooded cave in Thailand.

But there was one casualty — a former Thai Navy SEAL who died after entering the cave to lay oxygen tanks along the exit route.

Saman Gunan (alternatively spelled Kunan) has been remembered by his family and people around the world as a hero.

This is an excellent article as it has a complete video diary and interviews with the key members of the rescue itself.

A dropped guideline, an ill-fitting face mask during final rescue put Thai cave rescuers and the boys in peril

The former Thai Navy SEAL guy's death really brought home just how perilous the whole affair was, it was therefore quite remarkable in the planning and execution because they got all the lads and their coach out alive.
After so many days cut off without daylight food and water I am amazed at the resilience of those young guys.

How long were you a diving instructor?


Never

Thanks, that graphic is rather useful in understanding the enormity of the task faced by the rescuers and the impossible situation those lads found themselves in.
As per the Chilean miners I am sure that this will made into a movie, not that any film producer will really be able to capture and portray the actual events authentically.

8 out! Another 4 and the coach to go.

The rest tomorrow hopefully! The rain they were forecast seems to have fucked off so everything in their favour currently!

Dont think I could watch it. I am claustrophobic.

Good news about the four boys rescued today but what must the other 8 feel like tonight just waiting for their turn. I dont think their Mums will let them out of their sight ever again.

The first two members of the Thai football team have been rescued, a local rescue official told Reuters.

“Two kids are out. They are currently at the field hospital near the cave,” said Tossathep Boonthong, chief of Chiang Rai’s health department and part of the rescue team.

Wtf has hairy arses got to do with the stuck boys?

Anyway. The situation is getting more bleak.

A diver has died whilst placing oxygen tanks along he rite of the cave. He ran out of oxygen on his way back to the surface.

And the oxygen levels in the cave have dropped form 21% to 15%, so I’d imagine there’s more of a rush now.
