  • An Australian diver who helped rescue 12 Thai soccer players and their coach from a flooded cave said it was likely the bravest boys were rescued first.
  • It was previously reported the weakest boys came out first.
  • But diver Craig Challen said the decision was not made by medical experts, and instead was left up to the Thai Navy SEALS, the team’s coach, and the boys themselves.

An Australian diver who was part of the efforts to free 12 Thai soccer players and their coach from a flooded cave said it was likely the bravest boys who were rescued first.

Craig Challen, along with his diving partner Richard Harris, were among the team of international divers who were instrumental in the rescue mission which brought an entire soccer team to safety. Harris medically assessed each boy prior to their rescue, and it had been widely reported that the weakest boys were selected to exit the caves first
