Australian divers Richard Harris and Craig Challen to be awarded honours, PM confirms
Just hours after Dr. Richard Harris had completed his rescue mission, he found out that his father had died.
Harris has returned to Adelaide and wants to celebrate his father’s life.
The doctor and his friend, Craig Challen planned on traveling to the Nullarbor...until the Thai authorities gave them a call for assistance.
Initially they thought they were going to help with the recoveries, but later found that they were going to help with the rescue.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is now waiting to award them with honours for their rescue efforts.
