Remember The Thai 'Cave Boys' Football Team? Its 17-Year-Old Captain Is No More, Cause Not Determined

One of the 12 boys rescued after being trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand in 2018 is no more, as per Reuters. The 17-year-old died in Britain while attending a football academy, according to his former teacher. 

Duangpetch Promthep, also called “Dom”, was the skipper of the “Wild Boars” team whose extraction by international divers and Thai navy SEALs became a global issue.

The circumstances of his death are not clear. The news was shared online by a Buddhist monk who taught the players back in Thailand’s northern Chiang Rai province. 

“Duangpetch Promthep has now gone to another world. “I hope he will be reborn and become my student again in the next life,” Supatpong Methigo posted on Facebook. 

According to Reuters, Supatpong said he learned of Dom’s demise from his grandmother, who said he suffered an accident in Britain. 


Dom had secured a scholarship at the Brooke House College Football Academy in Leicestershire 

“I wanted to see his dream realised … but rest well now Dom,” former Thai national team captain and coach Kiatisuk Senamuang posted on Instagram.
