Rising Water : The Story of the Thai Cave Rescue Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The incredible true story of the twelve boys trapped with their coach in a flooded cave in Thailand and their inspiring rescue. On June 23rd, 2018, twelve members of the Wild Boars soccer team and their coach were exploring the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex in northern Thailand when disaster struck.

A rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels, trapping them as they took shelter on a shelf of the dark cave.

Eight days of searching yielded no signs of life, but on July 2nd they were discovered by two British divers.

The boys and their coach were eventually rescued in an international operation that took three days.

What could have been a terrible tragedy became an amazing story of survival. Award-winning author Marc Aronson brings us the backstory behind how this astounding rescue took place.

Rising Water highlights the creative thinking and technology that made a successful mission possible by examining the physical, environmental, and psychological factors surrounding the rescue.

From the brave Thai Navy SEAL who lost his life while placing oxygen tanks along the passageways of the cave, to the British divers that ultimately swam the boys to safety, to the bravery of the boys and their coach, this is the breathtaking rescue that captivated the entire world.
