    I don't know anything about diving but from what I've read it would be an horrendous task for them to dive out. None of them can swim, zero visibility, strong currents, narrow passageways where divers had to remove equipment to get past. If any of them had an anxiety attack in those conditions it could be fatal for them, or their companions.

      The film. First 30 minutes depicting the period up until their found, will be a black screen as they have not light.
      The rescuers. If anybody deserves a Knighthood, surely it's these guys.
      The rescue. If there's a god, he will ensure their safety. Stand by for an all nighter as they bring them out though.
      What i would add here is that the two UK divers who found them are just beyond belief and yes maybe other divers were willing to go there,but total respect to these two.

      A former Thai navy diver has died while taking part in efforts to rescue 12 boys and their football coach trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand.

      Petty Officer Saman Gunan lost consciousness on his way out of the Tham Luang cave complex, where he had been delivering air tanks.

      "His job was to deliver oxygen. He did not have enough on his way back," the Chiang Rai deputy governor said.

      PO Saman was brought out by his dive partner but could not be revived.
      Hope they leave the coach in there to rot

      I wouldn't have thought there is much swimming involved, crawling under water or being pulled on rope? Still unbelievably scary / dangerous.

      It scares me that if rain comes (and it is forecast) it could put the rescue back big time - I fear for those kids.

      Finding them was the easy part compared to getting them out; even highly experienced cave divers come a cropper :

      After reading their story I ended up watching the film they made about it, "Diving Into The Unknown", it really is incredible what they did just a few weeks after losing 2 friends.

      I also saw the news when I woke up about the Ex-navy diver who died on the supply run over night. This is far from over and I hope I am wrong but I don't see this being the only death during this.

      Tragedy has already struck one of the volunteers.

      Sad news....if anyone was in any doubt about how dangerous it would be to get untrained kids through those tunnels........
