Petty Officer Saman Gunan had been delivering air tanks to the trapped group but lost consciousness on his way out. His dive partner tried to revive him but couldn’t and had to bring his body out.
“His job was to deliver oxygen. He did not get enough on the way back, a spokesman told BBC World News
The group went into the cave while it was dry but a sudden heavy rain shower flooded the system and they became trapped. They were discovered after 10 days 2.5 miles from the mouth of the cave.
You will always be remembered as a hero, Saman. Rest in peace.
