According to a new report, the youth football team, captured in a cave in Thailand for 18 days, ventured into the place only for “fun” – and planned to spend there about an hour.
33-year-old Ayhan Vibundrungrang, whose 11-year-old son Chanin, also known as Titan, was the youngest member of the Wild Boars soccer team, told The Bangkok Post that she spoke with her son because of a glass insulating barrier, while he and his teammates restored in the hospital of Chiangrai Prachanukroh.
According to the report, the boys did not take any snacks with them when they visited the Tham Luang cave after their training – and they did not want to spend more than an hour there. But when heavy rains caused sudden flooding, the boys were forced to go deeper into the cave.
“After the first three nights without food in the cave, my son felt very hungry and began to cry,” said Vibunrungruan at retail. “He had to rely only on water dripping from the rock. It was very cold at night and darkness. They needed to hide together.
Coach Ekapol Chathawong urged the boys to meditate to help alleviate their hunger and save energy, the mother said. He also used a torch to find water flowing from the ceiling of the cave to drink, the 45-year-old Banfot Conkham, the father of Duantep Fromtep, 13, said the exit.
