Another hero has emerged from the miraculous recovery story of the Thai football team trapped in the cave this week…
Ekapol Chanthawong lost his whole family as a child. He trained as a monk and then devoted his life to helping kids in any way he could.
It is said that when the coach realised the boys had gone into the cave, he headed straight in to get hem out but ended up trapped in a hell we can only imagine.
According to rescue officials, he is now among the weakest in the group, simply because he gave the boys his share of the limited food and water they had with them in the early days.
He also taught the boys how to meditate and how to conserve as much energy as possible until they were found.
He kept 12 children alive in a cave without food or light for 9 days.
When eventually rescued. He was the last to leave.
He is just 25.
Ladies, let’s hear it for this guy.
