The emergency services saved Josh Bratchley, who was trapped for more than 24 hours in a cave in Tennessee (USA).
The emergency services of Tennessee (USA) rescued from Wednesday an underground grotto Josh Bratchley, a British diver who last July helped save a group of 12 children and his football coach from a cave in Thailand, reports The Guardian .
“I was awake, alert and oriented,” rescue officer Derek Woolbright told a news conference. The man remained trapped for more than 24 hours and “his only request” when he came to the surface was ” a little pizza, ” Wollbright added after the rescue, which lasted an hour. His fellow divers gave the alarm when they saw that he was not coming back.
Bratchley, who works as a meteorologist, was decorated last December by the British Government for his bravery during the rescue of the Thai soccer team, which spent two weeks trapped in the network of caves of Tham Luang, in the province of Chiang Rai , after getting lost during an excursion.
