1. New video of Thai cave rescue shows just how close divers came to disaster

By ANNA WERNER CBS NEWS July 11, 2018, 6:34 PM


CHIANG RAI, Thailand -- New video shows just how challenging the rescue operation to save a group of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a cave in Thailand really was.

Divers made the perilous, two-and-a-half mile journey through darkness, murky waters and narrow passages to reach the boys, huddled in a dry pocket with little food and water. Divers led each boy out, one by one, with two divers escorting each.

The players were given scuba gear to get through the harrowing flooded parts and were wrapped in blankets and carried by stretcher over dry land. Their vital signs were closely monitored, and they were given anti-anxiety medication to stay calm.

U.S. Air Force Maj. Charles Hodges commanded the more than 35 Americans on site.

5. If U.S. military personnel took part in the rescue, Trump will take sole credit for its success.

Believe me.

6. Sedatives for potential panic. Good thinking

I didn’t think they’d make it; but this was executed perfectly
