Hear the diver who rescued the Thai boys from the cave: "Chances were small"


Finnish Mikko Paasi was one of the divers who rescued the Thai football team in the summer of 2018. In SVT's Skavlan he tells about the dramatic rescue operation. - Our choice was between risking a slow death, or trying to save a few.

It was in June 2018 that 12 boys and their football coach disappeared during an outing to the cave system Tham Luang in Thailand. The incident led to a rescue effort followed by the whole world.

- Due to the monsoon rain, it was a fight against the clock, says divers Mikko Paasi who participated in the big operation.

"Was amazing"

After seventeen days in the cave, all 13 people managed to be rescued, but according to Mikko Paasi, they had not dared to hope that the rescue operation would end so well.

- When we discussed the alternatives, everyone thought that even if we only get half, it's a victory, he says and continues:

- But the end result was pretty fantastic.

See the interview with Mikko Paasi in the clip above. The album will be broadcast on Friday, January 24 and will be available on SVT Play from 5pm on Friday.
