Netflix to make series about rescue operation in Thailand – video

Last Tuesday, April 30, Netflix announced that it had secured the rights to make a miniseries about the dramatic rescue operation that rescued 12 boys and their coach who were trapped in a flooded cave in northern Thailand. The events of last year garnered worldwide attention and continue to generate much excitement to this day.

The story of the rescue of the children’s football team and their coach has probably come to everyone’s ears, but in the diving community we have followed it with particular attention. All thanks to cave diving experts, without whom its successful execution would not have been possible. All the more reason for us to wait for the filming of this story written by life, so that we can learn a little more about it through a mini-series.

[blockquote style=”2″]”This story has a lot of unique local content, but also universal themes that connect people from all walks of life from around the world. Thailand is a very important market for Netflix and we are looking forward to bringing this inspiring local but global story… to life,” said Erika North representing the Netflix platform[/blockquote].

On June 23, 2018, the Wild Boars football team comprising boys aged 11 to 16, along with their 25-year-old coach, were trapped while exploring a cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai when a heavy downpour flooded the tunnels, cutting off the way back to the surface.

The rescue operation lasted 17 days, involving experts and help from people all over the world. Fortunately, everything ended with a happy ending, although it should be remembered that it was not without casualties. A 38-year-old rescuer, Saman Kunan, a former Thai Navy SEAL who, as an experienced diver, supplied the trapped boys with air cylinders essential to their survival, was killed during the entire operation.
