Experienced diver rescued from Tennessee cave

Experienced diver rescued from Tennessee cave

The group attempted an additional dive to try to locate Bratchley, but could not find him, and then called 911.

"A couple of others there went in to look for him and weren't able to find him and they raised the alarm".

Sorenson said Bratchley probably tried to make some "self rescues" looking for the line, but realized he wouldn't have enough air to make it out after multiple attempts, so he chose to wait for help.

Josh Bratchley, a cave diver from the United Kingdom, was among the personnel who helped them escape.

In the end, the distance from the entrance to Mr Bratchley's air pocket was about 150 metres.

Mr Bratchley was checked over by medics who found he was "stable" and he declined further treatment.

Global divers were called in to help after 12 boys and their soccer coach became trapped while exploring an underwater cave system after soccer practice.

His only request after getting out of the cave was pizza. "Thank you. Who are you?"'

Microsoft bundling Game Pass subscription service with Xbox Live for $15/month
The console starts at $249 and comes with three digital games included-Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft , and Sea of Thieves . This seems mainly like a play to attract new gamers who don't have a giant library of now-useless discs.

Josh Bratchley was rescued just before 7 p.m.at the Mill Pond Cave in Gainesboro. "We had a nice talk".

The route to him, the diver said, was around 400 feet long and 40 feet beneath the surface, with limited visibility.

The missing person is known to have extensive training and experience in diving.

The video above, as released by ABC News, shows the area in Jackson County where Bratchley was missing, specifically the Mill Pond Cave in northern Tennessee.

Bratchley was credited among a group of elite worldwide divers involved in the intense operation of 12 young Thai soccer players and their coach in June 2018.

Following a three-week ordeal, divers eventually found the group - hungry, but alive - huddled on a dry patch of land deep into the cave.

'It's incredible to be recognized in such a way and all of us on the team are extremely appreciative of all the support that we've received from family, friends, cavers, divers, colleagues and strangers alike, ' he said at the time. The world watched as the team of worldwide cave diving experts led the mission to retrieve the boys.
