there would be an international incident otherwise. >> bill, thank you. members oned by two the u.s. air force who were involved in that rescue, major charles hodges was one of the mission commanders and master sergeant darrick anderson was inside the cave during the operation. good morning, gentlemen. i'm going s tort with sergeant anderson. take us inside that cave, seleant anderson, t us about the conditions and what it was like for you and what it felt like when you finally saw the initially we thought the cave wasn't goings to be a complex or re and ll getting in t seeing obstacles and tight points and you add on top of th cold waters with zero visibility. i think quickly we realized it wasoing to be a much more complex mission than we initially thought. >> major hodges, do i have this right thatthe very last moment, there was a complication with the oxygen. really, not only were you against time, it turned out
7:11 am
in e boys were rescued just the nick of time. >> yeah, wet knew te oxygen levels in the ninth chamber were slowly b surely going down. we knew the sustainment, course of action that was a potential option was for longer an option because we knen' they wou be in there four or five months. we thought originally if we didn't act when we acted, there was not going to be a successful rescue. we knew if we acted soon, we had the potential tocu rese them but we didn't have the oion to wait. >> major hodges, we can overstate how difficult and dangerous it is, a former thai navy s.e.a.l. died down there. so describe what you thought the oddsere initially. th so as we look at missions like is, we put them onis a matrix. this one due to the extreme
7:12 am
physical dhazards, to the fatigue hazards, due to the ifactors of any equipment breaks down, that's lifesaving equipment and it could have catastrophic results if that equipment doesn't hold up, when you loo 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 set.'s been we looked at this and we thought this has a low probability of success. i felt like i was being noptimistic whe i told the goveor of chiang rai when he sked that in my mind the potential chance of success was anywhere from 60 to 70%. we were fully expecting casualties. the multinational effort absolutely knocked it out of the rk. everybody came together on this. if there wasn't teamwork coming from every single direction, this would not have been a success. >> and my final question to you,
7:13 am
sergeant and, you weerson, you there. what does it mean to you to be part of thi incredible humanitarian effort, so much courage from so many people fro different countries rallying around this cause of 13 young boys. >> i mean, i think we can all be proud. like the major said, every bit of effort from every part of the world, those boys are. hero they were extremely brave to go through something likethis. i'm really glad everybody at the end of the day can walk awayth smile to include the rescuers, families, boys. >> major hodges, sergeant anderson, thank you so much and congratulations on your hard work. >> thank you for your service. >> thank you. >> we move now to breaking news in wisconsien weoned this at the top of the show, a deadly gas main explosion rocking downtown sun prairie overnight. nbc's ron motts there. ron, good morning to you. what a scene. indeed. a scene savannah, good morning to you.
