Families Of Rescued Thai Boys Embrace British Divers Who Saved Them

The rescue took more than two weeks.

Mr Stanton, from Coventry, spoke as he returned to the United Kingdom on Friday morning along with some of the other British divers who took part in the search and rescue mission.

"Craig and I have had a spotlight on our efforts and we want to make everyone realise that while we might have become the face of this rescue for some reason, everyone should know that the role we played was no more or less important than all the many hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people I have mentioned", he said.

'We gave them a little bit of extra light, they still had light, they looked in good health.

"They are the ones who were responsible for their own morale and really their own safety and without them being in the state they were in we couldn't have done anything". "And so there was relief tempered with uncertainty".

The group ventured into the vast cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after football practice on Jun 23 and were trapped when a rainy season downpour flooded tunnels.

Nevertheless, the Thai Navy SEAL diving team, who controlled the operation to rescue, have been celebrated for their efforts in their home country.

Volathentold the Daily Mail: "We are not heroes, quite the opposite".

"This was completely uncharted, unprecedented territory and nothing like this has been done". So, of course there were doubts.

"Meanwhile on the ground, the Thais and worldwide community sent in swarms of men and women to provide everything from catering, communications, media and of course the huge teams of workers filling the cave with tonnes and tonnes of equipment to try and lower the water and sustain the diving operations", Dr Harris wrote.

A flurry of lawsuits against Monsanto followed, and California added glyphosate to its list of chemicals known to cause cancer. District Judge Vince Chhabria allows hundreds of lawsuits against Roundup's manufacturer, Monsanto, to move forward.


Mr Stanton would not describe how his team rescued the children, saying it was "too detailed for this point in time". "My job was to transfer them along", former Navy Seal Chaiyananta Peeranarong told the AFP news agency.

"Nothing like this has been done", Rick Stanton said at a news conference Friday at London's Heathrow airport after returning from Thailand. Then of course when we departed, all we could think about was how we were going to get them out. "There is a lot of responsibility, that is all I am prepared to say. there is a lot of responsibility that an experienced diver could handle".

The film company says they are now in talks with "senior officials in Thailand both on provincial and national levels".

"We must remember the tragedy of Saman", Mr Dennis said.
