‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Will Make Thai Rescue Movie to Avoid Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Will Make Thai Rescue Movie to Avoid Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

One of the British divers who helped to save 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand has insisted he was not a hero.

All 12 of the boys and their coach were brought to safety over the course of a three-day rescue, organised by Thailand's Navy Seals and an worldwide team of diving and caving experts, that ended on Tuesday. Then the problem became how to get them back out through the tunnels, some completely full of fast-flowing flood water.

Pipat Photi, 15, also had a request: "I want to have crispy pork rice and barbecue pork rice".

One of the rescuers of the Thai boys who were trapped in a flooded cave has told how the operation was devised by British divers who had practised the plan in a local swimming pool.

"I want to tell the boys, please don't blame yourselves", Valeepoan Kunan said, as reported by Reuters.

The boys will be unable to watch the World Cup Final live in Russian Federation, despite an invitation from FIFA, as they will only be released from hospital on Thursday.

The youngest boy, 11-year-old Chanin Vibulrungreung, said in the video that his health is improving. "We ask for cooperation from everyone to ensure that each boy spends time with their family and friends as much as possible", Dr Piyasakol said. The boys and their family members have generally praised the coach for keeping the boys' spirits high and deferring food to them.

"They must have passed through about 150 hands", one of the divers said at a briefing in Chiang Rai in northern Thailand on Wednesday.

The Thai health minister Piyasakol Sakolsatayadorn confirmed today that the boys would be released from hospital on Thursday. Now I am very fine.

Meanwhile, the boys and their coach yesterday greeted the world for the first time from Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital in a video clip released by the Public Health Ministry. "Thanks for saving me". "He told me when I visited him in the hospital that he planned to go into the cave for just an hour and go home", Aikan said.

The Briton, who lives in Bangkok with his Thai wife Tuk, 42, and daughter Millie, 10, added: "It all really hit me when the 11-year-old came out".

The group entered the Tham Luang cave located in the northern province of Chiang Rai during an excursion on June 23 after completing a football training session when a sudden storm flooded their way out.
