British diver who helped Thai cave boys is rescued himself

A highly experienced British diver has been rescued after becoming trapped in an underground cave in the United States for 28 hours.

Josh Bratchley participated in last summer's dramatic rescue of 12 boys from a cave in Thailand.

Seen here in the black blazer on the far right, he was recovered from a dark, underwater cave in Tennessee, about 6.5 miles northwest of Nashville.

An alarm was raised when he failed to return to the surface.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JACKSON COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY, DEREK WOOLBRIGHT, SAYING: "He was awake alert and oriented...His only request when he got to the surface was that he wanted some pizza" Bratchley was rescued by internationally known US cave diver Edd Sorensen, who found him waiting calmly in an air pocket... (SOUNDBITE) (English) RESCUE DIVER, EDD SORENSEN, SAYING: "It was a very salty, dangerous, low cave.

Ran some new lines, came up to the air pocket and shockingly, there he was calm as could be he just said 'thank you, thank you, thank you, who are you?'

And I said I'm Edd Sorensen, he said, 'I should have know when I saw the side winder', and he was very calm." Bratchley's reported to be in good health after the rescue and refused medical treatment, according to local authorities.
