My understanding is that the cave was generally considered safe from flooding in June.
"Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action, rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith. Banish me from Eden when you will; but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge."

The cave trip was, from what I've read, an initiation into the team.

Thailand is not a country that pays much attention to health and safety.
This is the kind of thing that happens when you leave people to use their judgement without proper guidelines or training.

Common sense is not all that common.

Or common sense is just low quality sense.

Hopefully this event leads to a change in practice.

I've also read that they entered the cave from an easy access point, but when it started to rain that entrance collapsed and they were forced to use the other difficult entrance for the rescue.

There you go, ruining all that lovely disparagement.  :'(

There's probably all sorts of things I do regularly that, in case of a freak accident, will look obviously stupid in hindsight.

There is a fire. You offer to MacGyver together an extinguisher. The firefighters say, "hoses are working so far, but it might be useful later."

Are you a jerk for offering?

Which is fine when it's just your own life. It's a different and much higher duty of care when you are in charge of minors.

I'm not asking for the coach to be banned from coaching or charged with any offence. Hopefully it serves as a reminder to people in charge of children to think about the dangers of these sort of exercises.

They'd been doing this for years without disaster. There was no real reason to think it might be a problem this time. It was considered safe. A freak rain occurred, out of season, and they got trapped. No-one expected it.

There's a much more extensive discussion of the subject on ISF (no logon required), including contributions from someone who actually lives in Thailand and has access to local information.
