diving around and then the next thing you go to bump into is that good and they turn into a happy that that was not the situation. i was part of getting before the 1st kids out any kind of work pretty good. i was sitting in the 6 chamber which is hoss way into where he put the kids where i found our mission myself and my dive buddies busy voice to support the divers and the kits as they were coming out. so we could actually see the diver all see the life of the diver way before we can see the diver and i remember that reddy vividly i'm sitting on one of the banks together with my dive buddy and i can see this go into water i'm jumping into the water the water is about chest high at this point and i'm running towards that i thought he's dragging something to the water. i know what that is that is one of the kids but at this point i didn't know what condition the kid was so that i still remember coming
5:07 am
around him that he's coming up and i can see that topples scaping from the kid's last going to equipment which indicates to me that the kidneys is breathing and i was told he needed to know he said all right. maybe he's injured maybe something else is wrong with him but he said. i was the last person to leave the cave that night at this point all of the kids have already been evacuated to the hospital and was under treatment i still remember coming into the story a charter boat which is where the diving ins i remember one of the american divers just said to me i've been they're all fine they're all alive. while i thought they were because i sold it for busy divers phew i was really you know i didn't know and it was fantastic tool to get that in there good news that yeah that far i don't feel like a hero and i don't think any of us do because we were just doing what we do what every day but we've been doing something that we we all love to do you good thing
5:08 am
and i think that that's the most it's just you know. if you go again sure 100 percent yes i will go again. i think the biggest takeaway that that i had formed from this experience is that i learned that absolutely nothing is impossible if you work together if you have a mission and don't forget also a good planning then you can do everything. to use modest militia has been waging a terrorist campaign against somalia's government for over a decade now. and thought killed for the group until they succeeded in escaping its grasp. that theme of pontificating machine terrorizing some population but now that i. asking for forgiveness this facility. is home to 86 young men who used to fight for one of the deadliest
