7:11 am
was a complication with the oxygen. so, really, not only were you against time, it turned out those boys were rescued just in the nick of time? >> yeah. we knew that the oxygen levels in the ninth chamber were slowly but surely going down. we knew that the sustainment, course of action, that was a potential option was no longer an option, because we knew they couldn't be in there for four, five months as we thought originally. we knew that if we didn't act when we acted, then there was not going to be a successful rescue. we knew if we acted soon, we had the potential to rescue them, but didn't have the option to wait. >> and major hodgins, we can't overstate how difficult and dangerous it is. a former thai navy s.e.a.l. died down there. describe what you thought the odds were initially. >> so as we look at missions like this, we put them out on a
7:12 am
risk matrix and this one, due to the extreme physical hazards, due to the fatigue hazards, due to the factors if any equipment breaks down, that's life-saving equipment and could have catastrophic results if that equipment doesn't hold up. when you look at that on a risk matrix, it comes out as being extremely high risk level. and when you look at -- historically, anyone ever doing this, there's no precedent that's been set. we looked at this and thought, this has a very low probability of success. and i felt like i was being optimistic when i told the governor of chiang rai when he asked, in my mind, the potential chance of success was anywhere from 60% to 70%. we were fully expecting casualties. the multi-national effort, though, actually absolutely knocked it out of the park. everybody came together on this, and if there wasn't teamwork coming from every single direction, this would not have
7:13 am
been a success. >> and my final question to you, sargent anderson. you were in there. what does it mean to be a part of this incredible humanitarian effort, so much courage shown from different countries, all rallying around this cause of 13 young boys? >> i mean, i think that, you know, we can all be proud. it's, like the major said, every bit of effort from every part of the world. those boys are heroes. they were extremely brave to go through something like this. i'm really glad that everybody's going to have a day to walk away from this with a smile including the rescuers and the boys. >> thank you so much and congratulations on all your hard work. >> thank you for your service. >> thank you. >> thanks. we move now to breaking news in wisconsin. we mentioned this at the top of the show. a deadly gas main explosion rocking downtown sun prairie overnight.
