A former Thai Navy SEAL diver was killed Friday while delivering oxygen tanks to the Tham Luang cave complex in preparation for a possible underwater rescue of a boys soccer team trapped inside, authorities said.
泰国当局称，7月6日38岁的泰国前海军海豹突击队潜水员Samarn Kunan在向被困在Tham Luang洞穴里的少年足球队输送氧气瓶的水下救援中不幸去世。
Diver Samarn Kunan, 38, ran out of his own oxygen as he was placing the tanks throughout the cave in a desperate attempt by Thai authorities to eventually ferry the boys out with scuba gear, officials said.
“It was sad news, a former SEAL who volunteered to help died last night,” Chiang rai deputy governor Passakorn Boonyaluck told reporters.
“His job was to deliver oxygen. He did not have enough on his way back.”
Despite the tragic setback, Thai officials still believe they’re getting close to rescuing the trapped boys and their soccer coach.
“But even though we have lost one man, we still have faith to carry out our work,” said SEAL commander and Rear Adm. Arpakorn Yookongkaew.
Earlier on Thursday, rescue operations suffered another setback when bonehead volunteers accidentally pumped water back into the cave where the boys are trapped.
With crews furiously pumping water out, the unregistered group directed the extracted water back into the ground instead of into nearby rice fields, resulting in a stream returning to the northern Tham Luang cavern complex and hindering rescue efforts, an official said.
“They may have some belief that their technique is effective for groundwater drainage,” the rescue operation’s commander, Narongsak Osotthanakorn said, according to the Bangkok Post.
“Anything that is not in the plan must be discussed with us first.”
Rescuers have been working around-the-clock to pump out as much water as possible so the 12 boys, ages 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach can dive out before new rain hits this weekend.
