Thailand cave rescue: Ex-navy diver dies on oxygen supply mission
R.I.P.

When I heard about the boys' story I couldn't believe someone would be that irresponsible. I've completed a deep water diver course many years ago and even well prepared I would never venture with a group of children 4 km into a seasonally flooded cave.
indeed, let's hope the Thais get them out with no further loss of life.
I saw one story Elon Musk is building a ‘kid-sized submarine’ to rescue trapped soccer team
but hopefully they'll all be out long before elon musk has it built and shipped to thailand

Yes, I haven’t heard anyone say what is going to happen to the boys’ coach after this is over. Arrested I would hope.
