Throng Of Volunteers Gather To Rescue Thai Boys Trapped In Cave


CHIANG RAI, Thailand – Danish diving instructor Ivan Katadzic was on holiday in southern Thailand’s beach resort of Krabi when he heard about 12 boys and their soccer coach trapped in a flooded cave at the other end of the country.

He spent a few days gathering equipment and then set off to help with the rescue, by which time intrepid cave divers from around the world had arrived too, swelling the throng of soldiers, engineers, paramedics and other volunteers to up to 2,000, according to the local government.

“I think it’s phenomenal to see so many divers and nationalities here as well as non-divers helping,” said Katadzic, 44, who owns two diving companies on a Gulf of Thailand holiday island.
