Handcuffed, drugged with ketamine: Truth behind Thai cave rescue

Recommended Posts

Everyone was misled before and after the rescue about the sedation. It puzzles me as to why. It seemed like the right choice was made and the kids were in the best of hands so why even the PM felt the need to come out afterwards and announce they were not heavily sedated I just don't understand. Or why exposing it is such a big deal to some people.

Actually the story is about the parents being told something different to the actual procedure to get them out, but that would be understandable. Is the OP suggesting that the parents should have been fully briefed prior to the action?

If they had known,  they probably have been even more anxious and worried.  Just as well to keep it from them.

I very much doubt that the parents were not told that a drug would be administered and did not consent to it.

Parents of the trapped Thai cave boys were told their boys were being taught to swim to freedom, but really they were handcuffed and drugged.

 

You just woke up from a long winter sleep, as those details were published in the Thai press within the first week after the rescue?

As the saying goes...."the truth will out".

Apart from yourself who appears to know everything others might not know about this.

A fascinating short summary of the book "The Cave" by  Liam Cochrane is ABC's South-East Asia correspondent.

Ok, truth sounds terrible but was it really as bad as it sounds ?

 

totally justifiable to handcuff them for their own safety.

 

totally justified to have them drugged to get them out.

 

if parents or media were told the truth , from the sound of it , it would of created an outrage which would have complicated rescue even further.

 

does end result justify their actions? Absolutely yes

The legality of it , they were expecting some casualties and its probably illegal to drug someone and handcuff them  and there could have been some lawsuits if there were some deaths

So what? If that was the only way to get them out, then, it was the correct decision.

I absolutely agree - it avoids the "Panic Syndrome"

anyone who has done scuba diving knows the biggest threat to a instructor or buddy diver is a panicking driver who will grab your regulator or bolt to the surface potentially killing themselves.

 

hard enough in open water.   

The answer is don't learn to drive under water... 

Joking aside, of course it was the correct course of action to restrain them. Not sure about the Ketamine though. Is it a safe drug for humans? I have no idea. 

Kudos to the brave rescuers and the volunteer helpers. And never forget the life lost.

Did anyone publicly deny they were sedated and restrained?

One might do well to remember that this is Thailand  and as such the system is not plagued with ambulance chasing parasitical lawyers.
 
The end justified the means.
 
Speaking as a parent had been a parent of one of the children involved in the issue  the actions would  certainly been approved by me.
