Duangpeth “Dom” Promthep, one of the 12 “Wild Boars” rescued from Tham Luang Cave in Thailand almost five years ago, passed away from an accident in England on Wednesday.
Dom was a part of the Wild Boars football team whose members were rescued from Tham Luang Cave, in June 2018.
The world was transfixed for 17 days as an elaborate international rescue mission unfolded after the 12 Wild Boars and their coach was trapped by flooding in the Chiang Rai cave system after heavy rains.
Last year, Dom posted on Instagram that his dreams had come true after being accepted into the prestigious Brooke House College Football Academy on a football scholarship, reported The Nation Thailand.
Supatpong Methigo, a monk who taught him in Chiang Rai said that Dom was involved in an accident that proved to be fatal, according to Khaosod English.
The exact cause of death is still not known at this time.
