– Australian doctors and divers who are involved in rescue operations at the Cave of Thailand will be awarded in the near future.

Quoted from Melbourne 3AW, Tuesday (17/7/2018), it was delivered directly by the Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull.

Perth veterinarian Craig Challen and Adelaide anesthesiologist Dr Richard Harris were called in by authorities to help rescue 12 school children and their soccer coach, who were trapped for up to 18 days in a cave in northern Thailand.

Turnbull praised his bravery and indicated that formal recognition for the couple was in the prime minister’s consideration.

He said that their actions would be heroes of action, professionalism, discipline and extraordinary teamwork. He then other people in Australia can imitate them.

“It is one of heroism, professionalism, discipline, the most extraordinary teamwork,” said PM Turnbull.

“That is an example for all of us, a team brought from all over the world, showing what can be done by people who have good faith and discipline and courage when they work together.”

PM Turnbull has extra praise for Dr Harris, who has the role of providing clear medical status for every evacuation and anesthesia to the saved boy.
