The 2 British men who are leading the rescue operation are John Volanthen and Rick Stanton. They are universally regarded as the best cave divers in the world.

They were the ones who found the boys & are now leading the rescue mission.

HEROES. #ThaiCaveRescue
They worked tirelessly for days on no sleep to secure guidelines across the 3 miles of treacherous flooded cave. They then found the boys and reassured them they would rescue them.

This world can be a dark & scary place outside caves. People like John & Rick are the light.
If you would like to know more about these incredibly brave men here is a short article on their backgrounds:

They are the first port of call for governments around the world to lead rescue missions & do not seek fame, money or praise.

Selfless heroes.
Rick Stanton is a retired firefighter awarded honors for bravery in rescuing people from a burning building. John Volanthen has been recognized with honors by France, Mexico, UK and others for his bravery in cave rescue missions.
As a sports fan, I am delighted that team England is doing so well at the World Cup. Sports can unite people.

But when the Queen is sitting down to award honors to footballers, it would be a tragedy if these two men were not given the highest civilian awards.
It is no small thing to be willing to give your life to save the lives of innocent children.

The risk these men took to save these boys is nothing short of awe-inspiring. The support they received from international divers & Thai Navy Seals was beautiful.

The best of humanity.
