Thai Cave Rescuer Needs Own Rescue After Following GPS Into Canal

Apparently better at diving than driving, one of rescuers of the Wild Boars youth football team needed a rescue of his own after his car plunged off a back road in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

About 100 rescuers, soldiers and local residents rushed to the accident scene in Thung Yai District Thursday where Singaporean Seetoh Yiyu, 37, and Dane identified only as Claus, 45, were swept into a canal by flash flooding. The Danish man had participated in the rescue at the flooded Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai.

The two men, both diving instructors, were trapped in their truck and managed to make it into the bed where they were pulled to safety after about two hours.

The pair ended up on the back road by following GPS in their phones after a bout of cave diving in Krungyan Sub-district. They had skipped another larger road after seeing it flooded.
