Volanthen and another British diver, Richard Stanton, were the first rescuers to locate the boys and their coach in the Tham Luang Nang Non Cave in northern Thailand. The boys, aged 11 to 16, had to dive for part of their journey out before they were put on green plastic toboggan-like stretchers and carried, at times through steep, rocky tunnels, with ropes, strung overhead. "You have made a name for the SEALs unit", a senior navy official told those gathered.

He said "relief is the word I would use" to describe the moment he and Stanton found the group.

"Very good. The best - not good - the very best". "So, that seemed to work".
Narongsak also paid tribute to former Thai SEAL diver Saman Kunan, who died in the attempt to save the boys, saying his sacrifice added to the team's determination to complete their mission. "It's kind of bittersweet for what's otherwise been an excellent operation".
