Earlier a team of 13 teen footballer and his coach head out for a picnic. But suddenly it all goes wrong and they get trapped in a very difficult place which is almost 4Km far from the cave entrance.

According to Peter Faulding, who is the founder of rescue response provider Specialist Group International has said that it would take more than 4 hours to get entry to the trapped place and take another 4 hours to get an exit.

However, on this very hazardous rescue operation, a Navy SEAL diver Samarn Kunun has died while he returns back after providing oxygen tanks inside the cave.

He was taken to the cave’s chamber number three and other rescue teammate has tried CRP on him but he doesn’t come alive.

“Samarn took three oxygen tanks to the area where the boys are stranded. Though it does not look like a long distance, a one-way trek through the tough conditions takes about 5-6 hours. This means we use altogether 12 hours on one return trip” said Apakorn.

Altrought Samran Kunun is a certified diver with Navy SEAL diver who was worked for Navy, the situation is now changed a lot and it’s become more dangerous with unclear water and flood.

The operation will continue to recover those trapped boys to make them free. The environment has become more sadden, but the operation will still go on.
