In the interest of accuracy. It wasn’t a U.S.Navy SEAL. It was a retired former member of the Royal Thai Navy's Underwater Demolition Assault Unit, which is colloquially known as the Thai Royal Navy SEALS. He died while placing oxygen tanks along the cave route. His name was:

Sgt. Major Saman Gunan

 Rest In Peace.

In regard to Elon’s “pod”. The head of the Thai Rescue Operation stated that they appreciated Mr Musk’s effort and that while the device was sophisticated, it was not practical for the operation.

I didn’t know there was an “inaccuracy”? 

Thats precisely what my news here in Az. has said all along. :shrug:

Some newspapers and News media were just using "Navy SEALs". To most people in the USA that implies US Navy Seals. My post wasn't directed at anyone. Just trying to give proper credit to the proper military unit and the selfless and brave man that gave his life for others.

I checked out the NPD Web Site and it looks like they made some changes.  The "Events" Link is GONE and it looks like they added new Parts Categories.

The Boys didn't Swim out, they were carried out on a Stretcher.  If you put a Close Cover over the Stretcher that would be the Pod Design I had in mined.

That story is completely bonkers.  Evil media is reporting stuff without having all the facts yet.  One part of the article says they were on the stretcher, another says they were attached to a diver, and then put on a stretcher in dry parts to be carried.  I don't think we'll ever get an accurate report of what happened.

Probably not, but the outcome is all that matters here......they’re all alive and safe. With sadly, one lost soul trying to rescue them. :(

Wow what an idiot both of them IMO.....first off the guy in the car admitting he was driving that fast not to mention he was just caught doing

97 in a 55....AND the officer not to charge him and to stand there listing to him ramble on about how fast he's been driving and saying he was

not going to lecture him...…..you get caught doing 30 over the posted speed limit around here and it's called "stunting"  your car is towed away

and impounded for 7 days you lose your licence right there on the spot for 7 days and a $2400 fine...PLUS that info goes to your insurance and

of course that gets jacked up significantly.

The cop should be suspended, and the driver will hopefully not get re-elected.  And if he thinks he's got immunity, he's even dumber than he sounds.

It was mentioned in Thai and other Southeast Asian news that the boys were brought out using conventional dive methods. ”. The stretcher and full mask is a conventional and proven rescue technique. It is an immobilization stretcher that the boys were put in during portions of the tunnel egress. The stretcher some saw at the end of the rescue was not necessarily a diving type stretcher or some kind of “escape pod. They also had isolation stretchers on site and had to take precautions against spreading rare illnesses and two of the boys already had lung infections of unknown origins. The kids are still in isolation from their families due to concerns about rare diseases that can be contracted from caves filled with thousands of rats,bats, and all the feces from all the rats and bats along with mold and stagnant waters. They have all also been vaccinated for rabies and are being observed for signs of dengue and other tropical diseases and infections.

Not all kids were brought out the exact same way. Some were weaker than others and had to be stretchered with full mask. Some of the kids were given an anxiety medications before egressing. The factors these people were fighting were multifaceted……and as usual the American Media is going to gloss over details. The factors being dealt with just to mention a few were low oxygen levels, weakened immune systems,  anxiety/panic/vertigo, airborne illnesses from bats and rats, stagnant water bacteria and viruses, low temperatures. Even though it is hot in Thailand, the natural temperature of the earth is about 58 degrees F and that cave water was cool enough to where it can cause hypothermia especially in small kids who were already tired and weak. It was a miraculous effort by multiple disciplines. There were over 100 people involved in the rescue from such diverse backgrounds as cave diving experts, deep sea rescue, biologists, psychiatrists, experts in rare diseases, Field Medics from Thai Military, Police, as well as demolition and mining experts, etc. All that stupid headline grabbing crap here in America such as just using “Navy Seals” in headlines was to sell ink and grab eyeballs here in USA. There is much more detail and accuracy about this operation if you go to South East Asian News/websites.

Hollywood is already working on the screen play, but we know the accuracy will be suspect for the docudrama.

Most of us gave up a long time ago in regard to expecting anything accurate out of Hollywood.
