Story Recap – what happened in the Netflix series Thai cave rescue Season 1?
Before the Netflix series dives into the details of the cave disaster, let’s see all the key players. Among them are Eak and of course the 12 young footballers, also known as the Wild Boars. Unaware of the impending storm, the gang innocently head into the cave. But when the storm comes, they’re trapped inside and can’t alert anyone to their location. However, some of the parents realize what has happened and a rescue mission begins.
When the water level in the cave rises and there is still no confirmation that Eak and the boars are alive, there is great concern for their safety. In the cave, Eak tries to swim underneath to find a way out. However, he almost drowns. While the public hopes for a happy solution, Governor Narongsak learns that he must find a way to rescue the captured boys. One of the captive boy’s (Mark’s) mother, Namhom, learns of the situation in the cave and realizes that Mark will be among those trapped. However, the guards of the cave do not listen to her and deny her entry. She’s only allowed to go near when she’s screaming for the governor.
When the rain finally stops, the rescue team is able to reach the boys. Through a GoPro, the parents learn that Eak and the wild boars are alive.
News of the football team trapped in the cave spread around the world. As a result, rescue teams from around the world are offering their guidance. But when water begins to flood the cave, the governor can’t send any more help. At least for now. It seems the rescue team is finding one dead end after another. But then they learn that since they can’t bore the cubs out, maybe they can save the cubs in some other way. Instead, they can only bring the young out as they came in.
In the cave, Eak gives up most of his food supplies to keep the young soccer player happy. Above and on land, experts estimate that a rescue plan can take up to 3-4 weeks. But unfortunately that’s not good enough. As the oxygen levels run low, the chances of the trapped young surviving also increase.
A former Navy Seal, Saman Kunan, receives a call. Shortly thereafter, he reaches the cave and tries to save her. But something goes tragically wrong and Saman dies in the water.
Saman’s death puts the rescue team in great distress and diminishes any hope that the boars will be rescued. And inside the cave, the oxygen levels keep dropping, which means they’ve reached the “danger zone.” At the same time, tensions arise in the cave and Eak feels enormous guilt for leading the boys into the cave. There is more worrying news; In the next two days, a new storm approaches the cave. As a result, regarding the rescue mission, it’s now or never.
In the season finale, the Thai cave rescue mission is in full swing. But of course there are major threats. And some wonder if all will survive. But the mission is progressing quickly and soon five of the boars have made it out of the cave. As night falls and the divers have been working for 12 hours, it is decided that the workers must rest to ensure no tragic accidents occur.
Meanwhile, Mark has a little problem. You can’t find a mask small enough to fit around his face. It’s starting to rain and that means time is running out. Despite Eak’s initial desire to be the last to be rescued, he has to get out early so the divers have enough strength to support his weight. It’s going well, and then it’s just a matter of rescuing Mark from the cave. A landslide occurs as the rescue team begins to extricate Mark from the cave. Though it looks like disaster is imminent, Mark survives! And that’s why Eak and the 12 wild boars all made it out of the cave alive.
