We are greatly saddened by the death of the diver who swam in the flooded waters of the cave to bring aid to the 12 schoolboys and their coach who were on expedition to the Chiang Rai cave when a sudden rainfall flooded the cave, trapping the group for about two weeks now (7 July 2018).

The group’s ordeal has been flashed across the world and many countries, including Singapore, have sent their expert divers and rescue teams to Thailand to extend help to the trapped group.

We salute all the rescuers and the sympathisers all over the world as well as the bravery and resilience of the boys and the coach in battling thirst, hunger, fatigue, worry, lack of sleep in the cold and dark cave.

We extend our condolences to the family of the rescue diver who gave away his life to save the boys, and we pray that the group will be rescued soon.
