    Well all the media were wrong


    From an interview with one of the divers in the Guardian
    -
    Rescuers planned to start with the strongest boy, said Changkwanyuen. “But the Australian doctor Richard Harris evaluated the boys and said everyone was equally strong – so they picked among themselves to see who would come out first,” he said.

    Thai officials said this week that the ultimate decision was made by the boys’ coach, Ekaphol Chantawong. “The coach selected. He wrote the order down: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,” said Narongsak Osatanakorn, the head of the joint command centre coordinating the operation
    In fact it is said the first boy out was chosen by the coach and the other boys as he had a lucky or spiritual name. edit Mongkol Boonpiam - Mongkol means 'auspicious' and Boonpiam means 'full of merit.

    Well, that's a surprise. What a fantastic ending. I still can't believe it, what great teamwork.

    Yes it was an amazing ending. Must stay I am still fascinated by it. The interviews with the cave diver rescuers tend to give a lot more information of what went on. An article in the Sunday Times today was very good.

    It was also good to read that the rescuers felt the boys and coach had done nothing wrong and were just unlucky - apparently it is several weeks later than the end of June when the caves are expected to flood. In fact the UK caver who has been spending a lot of time in the caves recently exploring them and knew them well had planned to do a long solo trip in them on the Sunday the boys were reported missing.

    Yes, have been reading a lot about it as well. Very interesting reading exactly how it happened and who was involved.

    I think they were all heroes and I can't believe Elon Musk called one of the divers a peadophile, just because he refused Elon's help of rescuing the boys.
