Finally the kids are now saved and have been dragged out of the cave. Meanwhile, Elon Musk arrived in Thailand with his mini submarine for kids… but too late.
What is not said is that the operation could not wait more. The quality of the air in the cave had rapidly degraded and an ex Thai Navy seal lost his life while returning from delivering oxygen bottles to the cave, apparently from blood poisoning by Co2.
When we breath, we exhale Co2, which cannot be removed from the cave. Regardless of how much oxygen you add in the cave, the Co2, stay, and block the oxygen in the blood stream, resulting in coma and death.
Some were saying 2 days ago that the health of 2 kids suddenly had degraded, which prompted an emergency operation. Keeping them inside would be life threatening, and they had to be extracted as soon as possible.
Having all these people coming into the cave had probably raised the level of Co2 over the limit, resulting in Co2 levels too high.
Removing the weaken kids would also remove 4 people from the cave, who where breathing and exhaling Co2 and help the others to resist more time. But this had to be quick.
The first day 4 kids were extracted, 2 were sent with Ambulances, but 2 other were hidden and used helicopter, the authorities have hidden the emergency situation to avoid panic and worries to the families. The health diagnostic for one of them was red, that mean that he was probably in a coma.
Now we learn that he is getting better, we hope that the authorities will be more transparent soon about what did really happened and have some official news about the status of the 2 kids who were sick the most.
The second day, 4 more kids where taken out from the cave. And today the remaining was successfully saved and they are recovering outside.
Good job to the international team that worked together to save these 13 lives from a certain death if they stayed longer in the cave.
Here are the pictures of the rescue and their heroes.
