There was an interview with the public relations guy on the radio. He said they did everything right. They stayed calm, they let someone know exactly where they were, and they had lots of lights. He said that cave is like a system of tree roots, its very easy to get lost in there. I also admire that the students wanted to remain anonymous(sp?) they declined all interviews and even appearances on talk shows like good morning america. Most people want to "milk it" and try make some money on the side.

They also didnt have to pay for the rescue. Which is also kinda cool they budget for rescueing people. But I'm torn because I feel if people do something "stupid" they should have to pay for their rescue. I guess deciding is probably a tough call....

Anyways, they probably blew this up more than it needed to be, but could have gone a lot worse if the students had panicked, not informed people where they were going, etc. Glad to hear they were all fine.
