Interpreter Helping with Thai Cave Rescue

The Tham Luang cave rescue to save a soccer team of twelve boys and their coach captured the world’s attention. Among the volunteers helping in the efforts was Benjawan Terlecky, a professional English-Lao-Thai interpreter working in such fields as court interpretation and voice talent.

As reported by CBS13, Terlecky was so concerned that miscommunication could have serious consequences that she donated her time and money to travel to the Tham Luang Nang Non cave system, which is remotely located in northern Thailand.

As we now know, all of the boys and the coach were successfully rescued, but Saman Kunan, a professional diver, tragically died during the rescue efforts.
