A member of the rescue team that saved 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand last year has died from an infection he picked up during the operation, officials said.
Petty Officer Beirut Pakbara, a Thai Navy Seal, contracted a blood infection during the rescue at Tham Luang cave.
Another rescuer, Saman Gunan, died during the operation.
Saman, a former Thai Navy Seal diver, had been delivering air tanks and was on his way out of the cave complex when he ran out of air and lost consciousness. A statue of him was later erected near the cave's entrance.
Beirut was buried on Friday in his home province of Satun in a ceremony according to Islamic funeral rituals, officials said.
The Wild Boars youth football team, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach had been exploring the cave on 23 June 2018 when a downpour flooded the tunnels, trapping them deep underground.
They were all eventually freed in a 17-day international rescue effort that involved more than 90 divers and captured the attention of the world's press.
