His tragic demise prompted the Thai authorities for the need to call back the British cave-diving experts to lead the ‘mission impossible’ to save the boys.

But now doctors have decided the boys, aged between 11 and 16, are mentally prepared to know what transpired and Kunan’s personal sacrifice for them who died after running out of oxygen in the cramped, waterlogged passageways of the Tham Luang caves in northern Thailand.

”All of the boys who were evacuated from the cave have been informed of the death of one of the rescuers”.

Dr Jesada Chockbamrungsuk, who is in charge of their treatment announced.

All of the boys cried and were in tears when they found out.’

Kunan was awarded the Knight Grand Cross (First Class) of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant medal and posthumously promoted to Lieutenant Commander.
