    I think he is the one who got banned from the Thai rescue. I can't remember why now, it's somewhere in these threads.

    The only one I recall was the Belgian diver. I found some quotes on previous threads about it.

    A Belgian diving instructor, based in Phuket, has been banned from the rescue operations at #ThamLuang for spreading distortions and sowing confusion (amongst the press and rescuers).

    Sorry! It's a video from the diver's body cam showing part of the rescue. Hopefully it will be on youtube soon so ALL can see it. :)

    Two Australian doctors were given royal honours in Thailand on Friday for helping rescue a boys soccer team from a flooded cave and said they are looking forward to a reunion with the youngsters they helped save.

    Richard Harris and Craig Challen were given the award at a ceremony presided over by Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha.

    Four Australian officials involved with the rescue effort were also honoured.

    Australian rescuers revisit Thai cave
    Two Australian doctors who helped rescue a children's soccer team trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand have returned to the spot for the first time since then.

    Richard Harris and Craig Challen, honoured by the Thai government last week, were part of the international operation to save the lives of 12 members of the Wild Boars soccer team and their coach.

    The two divers met the Wild Boars privately on Monday, and also briefly entered the cave, which has become a tourist attraction although access to the interior is restricted.

    Harris and Challen paid their respects at the statue of Thai Navy Seal diver Saman Kunan, who died during the rescue operation.

    Brilliant! Well deserved and what a nice pair of guys (my friend works with Dr Harris and says he's wonderful!)
