The whole world is watching as the rescue 12 teenagers and a 25-year-old coach of their football team, who were found living in caves in Thailand after nine days of searching.
Missing found two British diver John Volanthen and Richard Stanton, who had been asked to help the Thai authorities.
The British Council for the salvation of the caves (BCRC) announced that three British divers Valentin, Stanton and Robert Harper arrived in Thailand three days after the teenagers got out of the caves and their relatives raised the alarm.
According to representatives of the BCRC, British divers are familiar with the caves of Tham Luang Nang Non and know most of their branches, stretching for almost five kilometres. Visitors are usually permitted to go deep into not more than 800 meters, because in caves it is difficult to navigate.
