    Brilliant work! Well done you blokes!

    Thank goodness the lads have been rescued by such brave and skilled personnel.

    What’s this about? Not the Thai rescue??

    The world watched as the boys and their coach, were saved. Against all of the odds, they came out alive, albeit some a bit ill.
    Unfortunately, one hero, the ex-Thai Navy Seal, gave his life whilst helping with the rescue. He should be honoured and always be remembered. Petty Officer First Class Saman Kunan was just 35yo.
    RIP Saman Kunan.

      Yes. Great effort by all.

      The essential role of an Australian anaesthetist-diver will also be revealed in due course.

      The audio would indicate that a Frog-man was also in attendance.

    Pen, we can’t trace the origin but it was filmed on 9/7/18???

    Really gives you an idea of the scope of the thing, doesn’t it.

    A truly awesome performance from all concerned, simply amazing courage, expertise, patience, planning, and execution of an obviously well-managed operation. The Thai organisation and management has been brilliant, along with the massive international support from brother organisations and individuals. The two British cave divers who first found the boys and their coach – what can one say! There really are no words adequate to describe this entire – well I just don’t know what to call it.

    So sad that that the young retired Thai SEAL lost his life in the attempt, he must not be forgotten. For there to have been only one casualty throughout is in itself a miracle.

    Brilliant. Well done to all concerned.

    Without wishing to detract from either the wonderful Thai rescue, or the rescue being depicted in the video, the video shows clear water (with fish) whereas the rescuers signified with their hands just how much (little, actually) they could see in front of their faces so perhaps the video may not be THE actual rescue – still and all those rescuers are brave people, that’s for sure.

      Yes, I noted that too, but I’m not sure that applied to the entire system. There wouldn’t have been much point in filming in the murkiest water. The manner of moving the casualties and the face of one that was shown (I saw this video and another on another site) certainly seems to match with this rescue.

      Wasn’t ALL murky limited visibility, according to one report, just the parts that were stirred up, AND contained sediments, not bare rock

    One only time when ‘taking a dive’ is applauded by everyone. Soccer idiots, please take note.

  • Graham 11/07/2018, 7:23 pm

    All the Aussie team must surely be candidates for AOTY!,

    Wonderful effort all round. If it had been in Australia at least half the divers would have had to be female and the whole operation would have been administered by at least 2 subcommittees of experts and politicians. There would also have been environmental inspectors to ensure that no stalactites were broken off.
