Thailand Cave Rescue

As people know there were 12 boys and their coach rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand last week. Skye Solutions as a business wanted to share and recognise this tremendous effort from the 100’s of volunteers and divers who saved the young boys and their football coach.

For many years, the CEO and Managing Director of Skye Solutions have visited Thailand and have also lived there. Thailand is very close to their hearts and they wanted to wish the boys a speedy recovery as well as remembering the sacrifice that was made by one diver who sadly died while trying to save the boys. The effort that went into the rescue was truly remarkable and something that they should be proud of.

The boys' tragedy-turned-survival-story has been followed by millions worldwide since they were discovered inside the Tham Luang cave after venturing inside the cave after football practice. The group was trapped by monsoon floods which made it impossible to get out. They had spent 9 days in the cave with little food and light when British divers first reached them on 2nd July. Lots of volunteers and almost 100 divers joined the effort to free them, which saw all the boys and their coach rescued.

The boys, aged 11-16, were pulled from the cave by Thai Navy Seals and foreign cave diving experts, in a three-day rescue push that ended on 10 July. They are expected to leave Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital on Thursday.

The 12 young footballers who were saved from a Thai cave after an international rescue effort are now mourning a former Navy Seal who died in the operation. They were told of his sacrifice just this week.

 

Volunteer diver Saman Gunan lost his life on 6th July while installing oxygen tanks in the flooded cave. He has since been hailed as a hero around the world.

His wife said: "He's been praised as a hero because of who he was. He loved helping others, doing charity work and getting things done."

Thank you to all the amazing humans involved in the life-saving rescue of the boys and their football coach. Especially to Saman who sadly died during the rescue.
