    Thailand Boy's Soccer Team

    I haven't seen a post on this subject yet. My wife and I have been watching the whole process form the beginning. My wife's first comment was, "I'm afraid this isn't going to end well." I agreed and that was over two weeks ago. The last I heard this morning there is only one boy and the coach remaining to come out. Sunday night while watching footage from inside the cave, I made a remark about the bravery of the divers who were making the rescue. From someone who does not like water and won't ride in the backseat of a two door car, the work that they have done is nothing less than remarkable. My hat is off to all of the rescuers, doctors and above ground help who pulled this off. Of course, I think the boys, aged 11-15 deserve a salute also for being brave and enduring the time underground wondering if they would ever see their families again. Everyone involved required strength and endurance that few people could muster. It is a shame that one Thai Navy Seal had to lose his life saving others. Sacrifice from military people is the same regardless of which military you serve.

    I'll be happy to get the message that number 13 is out

    Thanks for posting this Don. Until last night I had no idea the extend to which the rescuers have to go to get everyone out, much less what the kids and coach have to swim through. Truly remarkable.

    Thanks for the posting and update. I had mentioned Sunday morning, that 2 emerged from caves in my Good morning post,. Then I didn't follow thru with any updates , so no wonder no one knew what I was talking about.

    Agree the boys and coach are very lucky to be found alive and very strong.. But the men & guessing women are the brave ones . We see the images majority of the times all lit up in side that cave. Nope total darkness when the lights are turned off . The tight spots getting out of the cave plus all the water they will have to swim in to get out of the cave.


    Prayers for them to have good health , and to all that have worked so hard to get them out . It is a shame that the one diver lost his live , Prayers that he will be the only one and he will be remembered he gave it all to save them.

    Glad to see all things worked out for them and the rescue teams, I can't even imagine that type of cave diving and I've done a lot of diving, never mind rescuing kids too. I will take bets that coach will not be to happy in the coming days.

    Don,
    I have not followed this story, or much of the news lately....Sounds like they are now all out now, which is great. How did they get into this situation to begin with?

    I stopped watching the news as I am sick of all the partisan bickering and the pointless negativity. I selectively read on line what I am interested in and follow the Wall Street Journal, but have not followed this story. Thanks for bring it to a thread....................

    I'm a former recreational scuba diver with nearly 400 logged dives, most open water ocean dives. It's been 10 years since I've been underwater. I did a few wreck dives with low overhead and also had to watch out in some cave/overhang situations, but can scarcely imagine what the team and rescuers went through. Having to remove and place back on my back the equipment during training was one thing, having to remove the gear, climb over a narrow passage and put the gear back on in the dark would be another thing altogether.

    We're grateful for a successful and relatively safe outcome for this team/coach. If the Thai schools have a "what I did on my summer break," these dudes are the winners
