The Thai boys evacuated from the flooded cave have paid their respects to the former Navy Seal diver who died trying to save them.

The 12 youngsters and their football coach were not told that Saman Kunan had drowned ahead of their dramatic rescue from the Tham Luang cavern just days ago.


His dramatic death convinced the Thai authorities for the need to call back the British cave-diving experts to lead the 'mission impossible' to save the boys.


But now doctors have decided the boys, aged between 11 and 16, are well enough to learned of the former Thai Navy Seal's personal sacrifice for them.


'All of the boys who were evacuated from the cave have been informed of the death of one of the rescuers,'

Dr Jesada Chockbamrungsuk, who is in charge of their treatment announced.'


All of the boys cried and were in tears when they found out.'

One boy covers his face as he cries.


Ekkapol Chantawong, the 25-year-old football coach who led the ill-fated outing into the cave, wipes away tears with a clenched fist.








The survivors expressed their thanks to the Thai Navy Seal by bowing to his picture.

The youngsters bowed their heads in respect to the brave former navy diver and posed with a drawing of former Petty Officer Kunan at their hospital ward where they are being treated for malnutrition, pneumonia, ear infections and exhaustion.



'The boys all promised to be a good person and lead a good life to honour him.'

He added: 'We told them about the death of Navy Seal Kunan as part of the process of preparing the boys to go back home and to lead normal lives.'

Former Thai Navy Seal Kunan was honoured at a state funeral yesterday.

Hundreds of mourners paid their respects to the 37-year-old at a special ceremony attended by high ranking military officials and a representative of theking at the Wat Ban Nong Khu temple in his home town of Chatuphak Piman yesterday.


Kunan was awarded the Knight Grand Cross (First Class) of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant medal and posthumously promoted to Lieutenant Commander.



Family members hold pictures of Samarn Kunan, a former Thai navy diver who died working to rescue a young soccer team trapped for days in a flooded cave, during his funeral.




Former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Kunan died after running out of oxygen in the cramped, waterlogged passageways of the Tham Luang caves in northern Thailand.

Seal Saman Kunan was trying to reach a cavern set up as a command centre 1.2miles inside the caves and had been leaving oxygen tanks around the network as part of preparations for rescuing the 12 young footballers and their coach.

But he ran out of air underwater and his diving partner was unable to revive him.

That's how a nation rewards fallen heros and those alive and in active service are motivated to do even more

Not Nigeria that will even deny the death of officers and keep showing us that Nigeria is not worth dying for

Thanks for educating the ignorant lady and many people like her. See question when the issue is about a dead diver. Some women and trivialities.
