The crisis of the Thai boys who were stuck in a cave besieged with water came to a happy ending. Only one diver died during the rescue operation and he has been praised by the world as a hero.
In brief, the boys, who are part of a young football team, and their coach finished their training and ran towards a cave complex then got stuck in its maze after rainwater besieged them at the entrances. The irony is that some of them could not swim, and I never thought that a boy or a girl in this land which is surrounded by all this water does not know how to swim.
The rescue operation was very complicated. Foreign experienced divers and Thai Navy SEALs participated in it. All this is well-known and reasonable. However what attracted my attention is the international follow-up on the story as it’s became the second most trending news after World Cup.
Speaking of the World Cup, even the head of FIFA voiced the association’s concern about the boys by extending an invitation to them and their coach to attend the World Cup final match. Some doctors, however, warned of travel may threaten their health following all these days of food and sleep deprivation.
