Exceptional people: Douglas Yeo in Tham Luang Cave rescue
On June 23rd, thirteen boys aged 12-16 and their 21 year old football coach ventured into Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai Thailand after football practice. Right after that, monsoon rains flooded the cave and trapped the boys deep inside for nine days before they were found and rescued.
One of the most complicated cave rescue missions to date, it took place over a three day period, and involved around 100 divers and about 20 medics.
Douglas Yeo was one of the volunteer rescue divers and the only Singaporean in the rescue mission.
