There’s a professional cave diver who refers to herself simply as “Puff” on Twitter, who – in a series of tweets – laid out just how incredibly dangerous cave diving is, and why the ongoing rescue effort to get those boys and their coach out of the Thai cave is so astounding.
Knowing zero about cave diving, I have no way of knowing if her information is accurate, but it has the ring of truth to it, at the very least.
It’s a fascinating thread. Read the whole thing by clicking on this first tweet.
For once, Im 100% qualified to talk about current news #ThaiCaveRescue
Hi I’m Puff & I’m a cave/cavern/tech/Nitrox/tri mix/wreck cert’d diver. Summer 01, I worked at a dive equipment manufacturer and was part of the only team in all central FL
Buckle up, we’re talking rescue 1/X
