Subject: RE: BS: missing boys found in Thailand cave
The Australian anaesthetist/diver Richard Harris, who gave the boys ketamine, said later to journalists that he had been very afraid of the possible effects of the drug on weakened, underfed young lads, but that he reckoned it would have been the only way to prevent panics and disastrous struggles during the rescue process.

He's since been honoured in his country with the Order of Australia for his bravery.
