Thailand cave rescue!
Four more boys and the soccer coach trapped in a flooded cave in northern Thailand were rescued on Tuesday. On Sunday and Monday, as many as eight boys were rescued in two successful operations that have gripped the entire world.
As many as 12 boys and their soccer coach were trapped in the flooded cave for over two weeks. Their miraculous survival, and the will power to see the light of day after so many days, has surprised the world.
In times of crisis, one’s ability to keep calm often saves the day. According to Minister and Deputy Chief of Mission, Royal Thai Embassy, the soccer coach’s knowledge of Buddhist wisdom helped the coach keep the boys calm.
“Coach was a Buddhist monk before joining the team, he used his knowledge of meditation to keep the boys calm. Thailand has learned Buddhist wisdom from India through Lord Buddha,” the Thai official was quoted as saying by ANI today.
