Thai Cave Rescue – Full Documentary HD ( Ingles – posibilidad de subtitulos )
It was the story that gripped the world: 12 boys from a Thai soccer team and their coach were trapped in a flooded cave so deep underground rescue was almost impossible. Es la historia que se apoderó del mundo: 12 chicos de un equipo de fútbol tailandés y su entrenador estaban atrapados en una cueva inundada, así que el rescate subterráneo era casi imposible.
Then, as the world waited along with the boys’ anxious families, a brave yet difficult plan was hatched to bring the members of the Wild Boars team out alive. Mientras el mundo esperaba junto con las familias de los chicos, se tramó un plan valiente pero difícil para conseguir sacar con vida a los miembros del equipo de Jabalíes
It would take skilled divers from countries including Australia and even then success was not guaranteed. Days were needed to bring out the boys and there was no guarantee all of them would make it out alive.
Graphics and maps were produced of how the boys dressed in wetsuits and flippers would swim in a buddy system tethered to expert divers up and down the treacherous subterranean labyrinth to the surface.
The boys’ parents were told their sons would be swimming to safety and in the global joy which erupted after the last of the boys surfaced safe and alive, no-one questioned the method of their extraction.
But ABC Australia Southeast Asia correspondent Liam Cochrane says in his new book, The Cave, the boys were in fact drugged with ketamine and handcuffed on their journey out of the cave.
It was revealed during the rescue that the boys were mildly sedated to stop them panicking during the rescue, but the truth is more complex.
The boys received far stronger drugs, and they were handcuffed behind their backs to stop them ripping off their face mask should they wake up.
“To calm nerves, the parents were told the boys were being taught how to dive and the media reported that each of them would be tethered to an air hose and then swim out with one rescue diver in front and another behind,” Cochrane writes in his book.
