British divers not heroes, just relieved, after rescue

Harry Averill Kera Rolson

Rescuers are sent inside Tham Luang Nang Non cave to continue the rescue after the 12 boys and their soccer coach have been found alive in the cave where they've been missing for over a week after monsoon rains blocked the main entrance on July 03, 2018 in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

All members of the Wild Boards soccer team were transported by ambulance and helicopter to a hospital in the Thailand province of Chiang Rai, where they will remain until given the all clear from medical professionals.

Mr Jewell said: "The diving conditions were extremely challenging, there was poor visibility and responsibility for another human being's life".

Said the SEAL Navy commander: "It was hard but we had to keep fighting".

'The most important thing to have was a full face mask which had been applied inside with positive pressure to enable them to breathe and to be relaxed enough so not to feel any anxiety during the process, ' he said.

We're just very happy that the boys are out and safe.

An global team of cave divers and Thai navy SEALs extracted the 12 boys and coach in a high-risk, three-day mission that concluded Tuesday.

The hospital in northern Thailand where the 12 boys and their soccer coach are quarantined said Friday they are basically healthy, aside from some minor infections.

The rescue took more than two weeks.

John Volanthen said he's just relieved the boys are all alive, and praised the collective effort of the global contingent of rescuers.

With them are six Australian Federal Police cave divers, one Defence diver and a support crew who have been described as integral to the rescue operation.

He denied he was a hero and said he was using a "very unique skill set" to "give something back to the community".

But Mr Volanthen dismissed the idea, adding: "We are not heroes". We're very relieved that they're all alive.

There's been talk of awarding Volanthen and Stanton with the George Cross, the highest civilian award in the United Kingdom for acts of heroism. The boys are being quarantined while they recover from their ordeal.

Dr Harris is home to be with his family after his 88-year-old father tragically died just hours after the successful completion of the rescue.

The twelfth boy and the coach were freed from the complex late Tuesday, after a complicated three-day operation to extricate the boys, who became trapped on June 23 when rising flood water cut off the exit, deep inside the cave.

The IT tech said that the divers were not heroes and directed attention to the rest of his team and the Thai Navy Seals.
