fad chanabhon : This is "The Avengers Team" in real life #Respect

RicTic66 : Congratulations to all the brave rescuers from around the world who helped save the boys and their coach. It makes me proud to hear the two English divers are considered the best in the world by their peers and it was them who located the boys and led the rescue. RIP the brave Thai diver Saman Gunan who gave his life trying to save others. Ps I love the fact that one of the boys was wearing a 3 Lions England football top.

Elena Stone : Chris Jewell extracted 3 boys out of the flooded area of the cave. Jason Malinson extracted 4 boys which means in one of those 3 day rescue operation, he extracted 2 boys in one day. In the poor diving conditions, the enormous task of being responsible of young lives bringing the boys out of the cave, the British divers don't consider themselves heroes. They did not gave interviews during the process and focused on the tasks in hand how to successfully extract the boys & coach from the flooded cave. The Brits playing down their role, I hope when they make a film, they will take the British divers accounts of their contributions to the success of the rescue operation mission possible (no offence intended) so that the film will represent the true miracle story. Hollywood films have a habit of twisting the history ...remember the Enigma Code machine, a film portrayed it was found by the Americans in truth the British found the Enigma code machine inside a U-Boat that the Germans was not able to destroy before being captured & boarded.

signoaspire : Very good documentary but not enough focus on the Thai team. One of the main doctors was a Thai navy seal AND medical doctor who didn't get a mention here.

pforce9 : I work for a dive firm and I am starving for technical information on this operation. I know how far in, I read they assembled 400 scuba tanks, from you I learned about the 80% pure oxygen mix to extend the range, you mentioned buoyancy compensation as a consideration but not how you dealt with it, and I would really like to know how many and what kind of pumps were employed. Oh! And by the way, this is the most comprehensive report I have seen to date.

ปิยะ-วงค์เดือน วิจิตร : ในนามประเทศไทย ขอขอบคุณ ทุกๆท่าน ทุกๆประเทศ และทั่วโลก สำหรับน้ำใจที่หยิบยื่นในครั้งนี้และ หลายๆครั้งที่ผ่าน มา พวกเราคนไทย จะไม่มีวันลืมพระคุณ On behalf of Thailand, thank you very much to every country and all over the world for your kindness and generosity. Many times, the Thai people will never forget the grace.

Nanna Jjang : Best documentary about thai cave rescue so far. Thank you for your amazing job.

Mark Hansen : This was the diving equivalent of going to the moon or climbing Mount Everest. Hats off to everyone involved, especially the British. Amazing feat of skill, knowledge and bravery.

Fackmylife : Cannot even begin to fathom what those children, parents and rescue crews were actually going through. Hats off to them all and RIP to the gentleman who died saving the lives of his countries children, he will never be forgotten.....

Mohammed Zaheer Oliyath Vazhayil : Such a noble rescue drive well ended. Nothing is impossible when the nations work together. Let humanity stand up on such crucial times. Thank you for the wonderful documentary.

จงศิริ หาญสมุทร : Thank you very much from Thailand.

Arch Angel : Thank you as I had no idea of the incredible challenges that faced this rescue effort. Humanity at its true best brought these boys home, I pray for the hero Thai seal who lost his life trying to save them. I am so glad Thailand called out for help from the world. But what a fantastic effort they did in all the original data of this situation that helped the international helpers and aThai government put there heads together and rescue the boys and there coach. What a frightening ordeal. And well done to the hospital for all there after care of the team. Also to all the community that came together at the site offering free food, water, shelter, first aid and so much more Thailand businesses offering there services for free. Beautiful people

Meg Achoo : This is so amazing, the world coming together, we need more of this all the time❤️

Jalan Rina : This is the best covering i have seen so far, and complete with the inteview with the divers. Thank you ABC

C L : To the 12 young soccer players and their almost equally young coach, staying together in the long hours of despair, hunger, and not knowing if you would be found by being calm was the best thing you all had done. An adventure can sometimes turn out to be a mistake, but all of you lived for the moments and stayed focused to being alive, and did not let any negative emotions to affect you. You might think of the delicious food at home once you got out, but you never complained of being hungry or anything at all. All of you are heroes together with the rescuers and all the volunteers. You all definitely are teaching the world about resilience, strength, trust, love and humanity. Like to see you all grow up to be happy, confident and doing the best for yourselves, your families and societies, locally or internationally. May the divine power be with all of you, Team Wild Boar and Coach.

Juan Zavaleta : Millions of people around the world will be eternally thankful to every single person involved in the rescue, they are real life heroes that will be remembered forever. This story was so needed considering the kind of turmoil times humanity is living right now. I get very emotional every time I check the news about this rescue, gives me a sense of hope for us as a human family when I loose such hope very frequently... Than You all from the bottom of my heart as a simple anonymous human being...

Chitra Pun : this is how world should united and it was a beautiful example of humanity.
