The Royal Thai Navy has posted the following on their official Facebook page following the actions taken by the officer:

Chief Petty Officer First Class Thanawut Yommaha specializes in engineering. He has also completed an explosive disposal course and is a trainer for a paragliding course in the Royal Thai Navy. He has been involved in multiple professional rescue operations, a passion of his.

Thanawut’s passion for rescuing and helping others comes after he himself was rescued from an unspecified incident in his youth. This incident caused him to go out of his way to help and assist others when they need it, putting their well-being ahead of his own. As a result, Thanawut has completed multiple training courses around rescue operations and medical aid which came in handy during the incident in Sattahip involving an unconscious man on a city street.

Thanawut’s motto is ‘Help others, we all survive together.’

Commander Jeerasak Wangworawattanakun from the Royal Thai Navy rewarded Chief Petty Officer First Class Thanawut with an official certification acknowledging his actions in helping others following the Sattahip rescue.
