British diver recalls ‘massive, massive relief’ when he found missing Thai boys

However, the fearless South Australian anaesthetist and experienced cave diver has insisted it was very much a team effort, thanking his colleagues and the young boys for their courage.

Rescuers provided medical aid and assessed the health of a group of teenage soccer players and their coach who have been stuck inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai province since June 23.

The global bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters.

"By the time the last diver was out the water was already at head level, nearly to the point where he needed an oxygen tank".

In order to rescue the boys, divers had to contend with a treacherous escape route made up of narrow, water-filled tunnels, with the threat of heavy rain injecting urgency to the bid.

"On behalf of the operation unit, we want to send our condolences to him and I do have to thank him a lot", Thai mission commander Narongsak Osotthanakorn said at a news conference Wednesday.

"I think it is a miracle". "I'm so happy he's safe".

Forbes estimates the brand alone - which Jenner maintains sole ownership of - is worth almost $800 million. The publication also tweeted the news using the hashtag #SelfMadeWomen.

The wife of a Thai navy diver who died working to rescue a youth soccer team trapped for days in a flooded cave says she misses him dearly, but has urged the boys not to blame themselves for his death. The other five on the team were Thai navy SEAL divers. "The big heroes in this are the children and the four Thai navy Seals who were looking after them".

"The boys got special full-face masks with oxygen circulating all the time". As the cave begins to open up toward the entrance, dozens are seen crouching down and wading through gushing water to help carry the stretcher. No, we were just using a very unique skill set, which we normally use for our own interests and sometimes we are able to use that and give something back to the community. "But they were very cold".

The rescue took more than two weeks. "In our country, you have so many friends".

Ivanhoe Pictures president John Penotti announced that the company has received permission by the Thai government and Navy to adapt the real-life worldwide headline-making ordeal as a movie.

Chu also spoke of his experience directing "Crazy Rich Asians", an adaptation of the bestselling book by Kevin Kwan, which featured an all-Asian cast in a major Hollywood film. Now, there's no guarantee that Pure Flix, the production company that first announced that it was eyeing the movie rights to the story, would whitewash the film, but considering its roster of faith-based movies like God's Not Dead and God's Not Dead 2, it's highly likely that they would.

After days of being trapped, the pair from the Mid Wales team found them huddled in darkness amid fears they could be forced to stay their for month.
