Divers tell of fears, elation in Thai cave rescue

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) International divers involved in the rescue of a soccer team have told of how they feared the worst at the prospect of bringing the boys back to safety.

In an interview with Australian current affairs program 4 Corners, Craig Challen, a retired Australian veterinarian, said the boys were sedated during the rescue to prevent panic.

"You've got, most of them don't even know how to swim, let alone dive and we're all wondering how this is possibly work and to be honest the prospects were bleak", said Challen.

British diver Jason Mallinson explained how difficult it was to transport the boys out of the cave complex.

"You could spend several minutes at just one obstacle to try and find your way through.

Eventually we did it, but it's a very slow process and quite daunting." The 12 boys of the "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach are recovering from their ordeal and are to be discharged on Thursday (July 19) from a hospital in the northern town of Chiang Rai.
