As the Turkish Cave Rescue Commission, we are grateful to the members of the BCRC, Thailand’s Navy SEALs and all the other volunteer divers who participated in the tremendously complicated rescue operation in Thailand’s Tham Luang cave, which resulted in successful rescue of all 12 children and their coach trapped in the cave. We would also like to honor the memory of the retired Thai Navy SEAL Saman Kunan, who paid the ultimate price during his selfless participation in the rescue operation.
Even though we were not actively participating in the rescue operation, we did our best to give accurate information to the public about the operation through news channels and our website. Hopefully the communication between the cave rescue organizations of the many different countries will even improve further in the wake of such a wide international cooperation.
Emre Can Güzel – President of the Cave Rescue Commission of Turkey
