Thailand cave rescue: Children found ‘by smell’ - BBC News

Publicado em 15 Jul 2018
John Volanthen, from Bristol, was one of a number of foreign expert divers drafted in for the rescue of 12 boys and their football coach who had been trapped in a Thai cave for nine days.
He tells BBC Points West about the moment he and his fellow divers first discovered the children alive.
Mr Volanthen, a member of the South and Mid Wales Cave Rescue Team, said they knew they had found them due to the smell in the cave.

  • Thank you sir for your expertise and courage and at last being so humble. You earn our respect

  • A true hero

  • Straightforward, technical, logical, analytical, calm mind on top of bravery.

  • Wow, how the world knows how to come together for the children and nobody screaming the bad "straight white man"!

  • Where had they went for toilet in such place..?

  • This is one of the many reasons why people like us of the entire world should be united in case of events like these, this is truly one of the greatest things I've seen in this entire decade

  • He truly is a hero. Not the hero that they so easily throw onto people but there should be a word that is even more than a hero and should be him. He and his friend are the top dogs of the heroes but i think everyone involved in this mission was a hero. Even the lady and her daughters that would come everyday just to clean up the messes from people eating. Thereby making it possible for the volunteers that were feeding everyone hero. Including the volunteers that came up to cook and feed the people who were feeding all the people. This is true. There were people who came up to feed the feed who were so busy cooking and feeding everyone else. And of course everyone above and below ground. The Thai people are amazing. All volunteers using their own food, money, and time to do whatever is needed. And being so organized for just individuals that showed up to help.

  • When the shit hits the fan, true men stand up to the plate

  • Salute to such heroes

  • So that's what a hero looks like. Nice

  • When i first heard about the boys and there coach i really did not believe they would find them alive.. In a time were every day theres bad news all over the world. This heroic rescue is such a breath of fresh air. The way that so many people came to help... Shows there are good people in this world and many true Hero's... One of witch is the coach he may have took them there but he saved them as well... True Hero.. Love to all

  • Great strong Driver

  • Congratulations! Top awards for the divers for such impossible rescue, indeed, could they be knighted by the Queen?

  • Great people, someone ppl would come up with excuses like a lot of fools in American. The first thing they worry about is social media fame and saying,"shit that ain't my problem."

  • Bloody lad!

  • Hero! Angel! Thank you sir. 👏🏾

  • This man is not only a hero, but he IS the epitome of humility! Love, From Malaysia.

  • "By smell" means by taste and smell of the boys feces in then water. No wonder the water was dark and murky !

  • We need more people like u 🙏🏿

  • Amazing

  • the diver that first talks to them and says thirteen--why is it kept from the public to simply come out and identify who that diver is?? Why all these videos and there are several divers and we are left guessing and no one is clearly identified.? Is this the diver that said 13? In other words we saw the important first and later videos of the kids and want to know who the people are afterwards why just a jumble of videos with nobody identified?

  • Some of us can still dislike it 😨😨😨😨..... No matter how many people dislike it ...well in my case i like it and m proud of everyone connected to the rescue team .. God bless you all ..

  • Sorry for my English. In all my life, I have never heard of such a phenomenal achievement. I confess that at first I was very sad and I cried. Because I thought those boys would all die. I'm the father of a 13-year-old boy. Of all the HEROES who participated, I think two deserve special thanks: John Volanthen and Rick Stanton. If it had not been for them, nothing would have been possible. I have no words to describe my admiration.

  • "The human smell" was that of excrement accumulated over 10 days. The media should now stop to extract the last ounce of drama from the rescue, please.

  • Yet Elon Musk calls him a Pedo for not using his submarine. Wtf Elon?

  • Question of the year: You are not a panicker... are you? The guy does cave dive rescues... probably requires amazing levels of composure, skill and confidence.

  • Whites saved the asians. But the media still demonizes whites.

  • Thank god for men like this. This made me ill & I wasn't down there.

  • Amazing People who helped those Kids.You Guys Are All Heroes Seriously We Thank You For All The Amazing And Unbelievable Staff To Get Those Kids Out in the caves...Good job guys.

  • God bless you hero,, thank you

  • I will tell you why it took 17 days to rescue them. Because they was still practicing there final grand "debut" -Take boys into cave - Wait for new reporter to get there - allow them to broadcast it to millions of people around the world. - Get a Indonesian seals to rescue them but then he dies. - get USA Elon Musk to advertise he's great product and make him like the hero Then someone said. Oh but this looks like in favour of us? We must show the public that we too have suffered in some way. Someone said I got it. Let's say the Australian doctor dad died on the last day as he was just coming out rescuing the team. BOOM! That's a rap! and public will know. Western save the day!

  • They are more than hero’s they are what most people don’t have in ther body’s they don’t care about ther neighbor they would rather shoot you than talk to you this man is a hero but he loves his neighbor

  • Brave man.....

  • A real man , I’d love to meet a man like this ❤️

  • The Westerners are always heroes!

  • Ang galing naman

  • I LOVE THIS VIDEO :)

  • Best Of Britain !!!

  • 13 people shitting in a flooded cave for 10 days must have smelled pretty yummy

  • why does he have to work a normal job ? he should be paid plentifully doing this kind of thing

  • Admirable job

  • Great job and all done without Musk's little crappy sub.

  • The French had an African migrant shimmy up a building and save a kid.Vive la France,!

  • God bless you kids

  • What i love most about this story is how humble they all seem to be. From the kids and their coach to the rescuers, they are all true hero’s. We need more people like this in the world.

    • They all are good people.

  • They are Heroes.. thank you..

  • Also THEY ALL WERE IN ON RAPPING TWELVE YOUNG Boys IN TAI LAND WHERE THE ELITE DWELL EVEN MORE not only that there is no laws nor their parents protecting them from these monsters with such power

  • Thanks you very much for a great job love ❤️ from India 🇮🇳

  • เราจะจดจำทุกๆคน ตลอดไป

  • ขอบคุณทุกๆสื่อ และทุกความช่วยเหลือครับ จากใจคนไทย

  • His Modesty John Volanthen

  • brits are racist. They never help white people.

  • You all are the best! Your team got 10 credit from me.

  • Thank you so much John Volanthen, for your conscientious maturity and for being a true Human Being, aware of the qualities that a true Human Being must have. Without it, the children would not have survived! The prayers were many and God chose you, among others, as one of His Angels, to find the children and to be able to save them! We live in an absurd world, where human lives have no value, and therefore this rotten society, we live in, considers a hero who behaves like a true Human Being, when all human beings should be heroes, that is to say, to do all that is within our power to save any human life!

  • Big thank for help them

  • is this the BBC, where is the interracial lesbian scene

  • Jimmy savillle would have found them quicker

  • AWESOME JOB MATE. HERO FOR SURE.

  • br-tv.net/tv/video-H3JrdCtB7Rk.html

  • “Yeah, These “pedo guys” can smell out vulnerable kids anywhere on earth.” - Elon Musk

  • Hero! And dumbass Elon musk had nothing to do with it but tried to hog the glory. His shit submarine was useless

  • Great Greater Greatest......

  • the real man!

  • I only hope if I am ever in such a tight spot, there will be someone as calm, humble, and competent as this man helping rescue me!

  • The British spirit!

  • White people rock!

  • Can someone explain to me how and why they got there.. and how the fuck the were found

  • Brave Shit....My ass would've be SCARED 😂😂😀

  • Everyone on this mission is a hero but this guy sets the standard.

  • He smelled rape and after off camera sacrifice

  • Pedophile

    • overmostheads yeah I’m talking about the old Britain diver who complained how musk invented a useless invention which is not true

    • He isn't the one Elon called a pedo.

  • Knoledge, calm, confidence... what a fantastic work! God blesses all those people that rescued the boys!

  • This is the greatest story of heroism I've seen in my life. Bravery and brilliance beyond words. John and the team, thank you, thank you, thank you. God bless you all.

  • The children are gay and they deserve to die!!!!!!

  • the whole world thanks to all of you.

  • Behind all the PC bullshit of the attention seeking modern world there are people like John who are the real deal, who just get on with their job quietly and calmly simply because it's their job and they have to do it. The word 'hero' has been debased by the media, he is on another level that very few reach.

  • A real hero.

  • Wait how did they get down there?

  • How's the pedo diver.

  • You are the real hero of Humanity

  • That title tho... LMAO!

  • *IGNORE THE MEDIA*

  • What a bunch of Badasses

  • One of the most bs psyops ever, lmao smell!? Ppl believe anything these days

    • .. When 13 kids are shitting, pissing, sweating and breathing into a relatively small space for 9 days it tends to start to smell..

  • Just an english man being and englishman.

  • Yeah, and no thanks to the diq Elon Musk and his war against journalist and calling this man a "pedo".

  • Nothing to say....but a wonderfull man!

  • he looks like superman the real hero

  • Stiff upper lip!

  • 🔊. REPENT of yo SINS ... All must repent from sin to enter the kingdom of God. "JESUS" Is the narrow road least taken, the ONLY way to the father in Heaven... God loves you ❤

  • I wonder how many things like this happen each year, but they're never found and are left to die in the dark.

  • How did all those kids get down their?
