Itís a great story but tough to compete with Shackleton, the miners, Zamperini, the Bataan death march, the Andes survivors...

Donít get me wrong, I worry for the kids....I just always felt like they would make it based on stuff I read.

Not sure why one would try to compare disasters. But yeah, I think this hits me hard because it's kids - and looking at the available info, I wasn't so sure they'd all get out.

One interesting factoid I learned is that very few Thai children know how to swim, and (supposedly) drowning is one of the leading causes of death in the the under-15 crowd.

Quote:
 
More than 2,600 children die from drowning in Thailand every year, claiming the lives of about seven Thai children each day. Through the SwimSafe Thailand program, The Alliance for Safe Children (TASC), Royal Life Saving Society Ė Australia, Thai Life Saving Society and the Resourcing Public Health Foundation (RPHF) are partnering together to address the tragic and preventable loss of so many young lives.

While Thai children live and play around the water as part of their daily routines, only one third of Thai children ever learn to swim. The Thai National Injury Survey (TNIS) conducted between 2003 and 2004 showed that more children over the age of one die from drowning than from any other single cause of death.

Being a certified diver I have been watching this with great interest. I know how claustrophobic things can get just being in the open sea. I can't imagine what a harrowing nightmare it must have been for everyone involved. Diving with newbies....9 hours in the dark in a cave...one guy dead...the world watching...

Thank God they all made it out.
