That is so sad but what a hero


Ekapol Chanthawong (The coach) lost his whole family as a child. He trained as a monk and then devoted his life to helping kids. According to rescue officials, he is among the weakest in the group because he gave the boys his share of the limited food and water they had with them in the early days.

He also taught the boys how to meditate and how to conserve as much energy as possible until they were found. He kept 12 children alive in a cave without food or light for 9 days. When eventually rescued. He will be last to leave. He is just 25.

Sometimes things happen for a reason.....!

The coach in teaching meditation probably had the kids bouncing light beams around their heads, he probably did.

Whatever the monk did it was certainly good.
All the kids probably obtained single pointed concentration as direct result of the meditation. Therefore they would have been able to park their minds in clear light; parked mind without thought or worries of any kind.

good stuff

Banphot Konkum, father of 13-year-old Duangpetch "Dom" Promthep, said his son said the team members didn't know rain had started falling after they had entered the cave on June 23. But the rain caused flooding in the cave, blocking them from exiting.

"After an hour when they wanted to leave, the water level was rising. They ran further inside the cave to escape from the water. The water flow was strong," said Banphot.

"After the first three nights with no food in the cave, my son felt extreme hunger and cried," Aikhan told the Bangkok Post. "He had to rely only on water dripping from the rock. It was very cold at night and pitch dark. They had to lie huddled together.

She said Tun, said the boys' 25-year-old soccer coach Ekaphol 'Ake' Chantawong, told them to meditate to ease their hunger and save their energy.

One of the two Australians who were with the Thai football team and helped them escape safely from the Tham Luong cave has revealed the boys and their coach were heavily sedated during the extraction operation.

Dr Challen said the risks of diving out the unconscious children cannot be overstated.

"It was time consuming and fraught with danger because you really only need to do one little thing wrong that makes the breathing apparatus not work properly or have a little leak or something like that, which may go unnoticed when they set off," he said.

Ahead of the risky mission the doctors were reportedly given diplomatic immunity — a form of legal protection from prosecution under the host country’s laws.

Various other extraction methods were proposed, including drilling or placing the boys in nylon pods with air tanks, but the dive method was ultimately decided as the best option.

‘THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON’

In an earlier interview, Dr Challen revealed that the boys were medicated to the extent that “they didn’t know what was going on”.

“Who would chloroform them? If they’re chloroformed, how could they come out? It’s called anxiolytic, something to make them not excited, not stressed,” he said at a press conference in Bangkok.

But a British diver said: “I was told the boys were given a dose of ketamine”, referring to the horse tranquilliser often used as a recreational drug.

An American diver involved in the rescue said that the “kids were proper knocked out”.

Spanish diver Fernando Raigal told the Daily Mail: “The boys were sedated — they were unconscious.”

I feel terrible for the UK diver who went to such lengths to be accused of being a peadophile by Musk. Sad to say the least.

Musk is a Trump supporter, so what did you expect, his tweets will come back and bite him?

Thats what bothers me about meditation. A spiritual detachment form reality that may help you scrape through an emergency used as a daily coping mechanism can’t actually be healthy. There’s a stiff drink for Dutch courage and then there’s a serious alcoholic with underlying issues.

Maybe, I am not so sure that people like that give a damn to be fair. Perhaps he should of gone in and tried instead of saying such things.

Sad world we live in at times. The diver has my respect. Musk does not.

I don't agree at all. You clearly have deeply misguided idea of reality. inflated ego is a cop out, no lesser a delusion than bouncing light beams.
I actually stormed out of a meditation session Monks were leading light-beam thought process and slammed the Gompa door on the way out.
I've often considered that and disagree with your comments that some how its a spiritual detachment from reality. Both the perception of detachment is in its self a reality, as is perception of light beams..

I'm certain our minds nature is definitely dualistic and the true nature of self is moving energy.

Not criticizing that they drugged the boys but very surprised we were deliberately lied to / mislead what was occurring, all drawings displaying kid tagging along behind a diver followed by another diver was a load of shit, they didn't do that at all. They lied and that surprised me, certainly not your comment about dutch courage, i wasa placed on the NZ Navey Rum list and received my daily tot for well over a year before my deployment in Vietnam and I am of the opinion what you suggest is pure evilness

I don't blame them for not telling people the kids were drugged...just like they didn't tell the parents which kids were out...they did what they had to do to get those boys out safely and didn't need the panic and objections to what was a very dangerous situation no matter how it played out...also what they didn't need were panicked boys which would have made things twice as dangerous...not only for the boys but the divers also....I commend them...they are heroes and risked their lives for these kids....I trust that they absolutely did the only thing that could be done for a quick rescue before that cave filled with water.....wine



we can all sit back and criticize but we weren't there risking our lives and we aren't the experts....wine
