Not sure, but I think this might be several firsts in cave rescue history: (1) participants trapped by flood water rescued by assisted cave diving out of the cave; (2) total duration of entrapment ~20 days?; (3) total number of participants entrapped 12.

Hopefully they will put a gate on that cave now and restrict access to a permit system only during the dry season ;)

It sounded like all of the entrapped were rescued, but one of the rescuers died?

No, that's their name. Their team sponsor's business has something to do with pigs so they chose 'Wild Boars.'

What was it 20, 25 days underground?

The longest I ever spent in one go was around 8 days, and that was when I was at the peak of my caving career, with thousands of previous hours underground, and most importantly: I was there VOLUNTARILY and with plenty of water, food, light, and reasonably comfortable bivvy gear. I was doing that for fun, and even so, it has a strange effect on your psyche to be in such an alien environment for that long: no sounds of animals, no natural light, no rustling of leaves, no fresh organic smells at all, no wind, no grass, no trees, no buildings, no people (other than the other caver, this was a two man crew back in about 2001 in Roppel's "Dixie" extension).

Being trapped, with insufficient shelter, insufficient food, insufficient water, almost nothing to do (we were spending all our waking ours either cooking, working on gear, or surveying, and we were able to get decent sleep), insufficient light (if any), possibly very limited capacity for proper waste management (if it was dangerous or difficult to crawl too far from the "camp site" to a latrine site, then they may have been forced to pretty much shit and piss IN their camp site . . .), for 20 or 30 days!? That would drive even the most hardened US Navy SEAL hard man toward the brink of sanity, and possibly over that brink.

Hopefully, these guys get sufficient post-incident psychiatric attention.

It is my understanding that the victims of that Chilean mine entrapment and rescue generally did NOT get proper post-rescue care, and that the epidemiology of that group is quite grim. This is something my wife has passed on to me based on a documentary she watched, I haven't seen any primary sources on it.

What's the difference between the English team and some Thai boys?
































The Thai boys are coming home. Also, they aren't very good at diving.
