One Boy Takes On Key Role During Thailand Cave Rescue

One Boy Takes On Key Role During Thailand Cave Rescue

The worldwide 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.

Seven other Britons in the rescue, five of them divers, were due home on Friday.

Duangduen Sittiwongsa, a classmate of 16-year-old Pheeraphat "Night" Sompiengjai, whose birthday fell on the same day the team entered the cave, said they would give him cake when he came back to school.

"There is a lot of responsibility, that is all I am prepared to say. there is a lot of responsibility that an experienced diver could handle".

With the crucial acquisition of Chu - known as the director of Now You See Me 2, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and the Step Up sequels - Ivanhoe's version of the Thai cave rescue story will likely manifest as the more prominent picture amongst what could become an array of adaptations.

The young soccer players rescued from a cave in Thailand are resting comfortably in a hospital.

"Our thanks and greatest admiration go the British lead divers, and support divers along the route in and out of the cave system from the EU, US, China and Australia, as well as the vast number of participants from military and civilian organisations in various support roles", the statement continued.

As a group consisting of a medic and several Navy SEALs remained within the cave with the boys, teaching them how to swim and dive and fitting them with SCUBA gear, the mission to bring them out officially began on Sunday, July 8.




"Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers".

But Chaiyananta, whose job was to help transfer the kids along between chambers two and three, said they were all "sleeping" on the harrowing journey out.

"The boys got special full-face masks with oxygen circulating all the time". They were then carried on stretchers through dry parts to the cave's entrance.

"The section of cave we were in was very rocky and unstable. But they were very cold".

They were also seen sitting cheerfully in their hospital beds, where they are being kept in isolation until doctors are sure they did not pick up any diseases during more than two weeks in the dark. "In our country, you have so many friends".

Water pumps failed hours after the last boy was saved, sending rescue workers scrambling out for safety.

Filmmaker Jon M. Chu, motivated by his film Crazy Rich Asians, isn't willing to let Hollywood whitewash the story about the Thai cave rescue mission. Ivanhoe is already the second company to have been granted permission, with faith-based company Pure Flix Entertainment (of the God's Not Dead films, ) landing first.

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.
