Funny footnote to Thai cave boys’ rescue

Posted by Richard on July 20, 2018

A retired Thai military officer provided Michael Yon with a funny footnote to the story of the Thai soccer team rescued from a flooded cave after two weeks. It seems that the rescuers let the boys decide who should leave the cave first.

The boys had no idea that millions of people around the world, and a helicopter were waiting for them. The hospital was totally prepped. A doctor told me that all 13 had their own medical staff assigned to them. Everyone had their own doctors and nurses assigned.

But they are rural boys and thought they would just pedal their bicycles home.

The boys decided that those who had the longest bicycle ride home should leave first.
