Zaky The Egyptian Hero Saving Those Kids Trapped in the Thai Cave

Zaky The Egyptian Hero Saving Those Kids Trapped in the Thai Cave By July 11, 2018 Credits to Pulse We’ve all had our hearts sinking right after we heard about the kids and their trainer being trapped in that cave. But luckily yesterday we heard great news about their rescue. But we have to say that we felt even greater when we discovered that one amazing Egyptian diver named Khaled Zaky helped in saving those kids. Who is This Handsome? Credits to Pulse This Egyptian hero is called Khaled Zaky. He is known for his diving skills in Sinai and specifically Sharm El Sheikh. All people know how great he is and how he is the closest human being to a fish. Not only this, but he is also blessed with the creative side as he is a professional underwater photographer. He is living any diver’s dream as he is living his life diving, taking pictures and even teaching people to do both. What was his contribution? All of this is amazing, but what is extraordinary, and says a lot about his personality, is the fact that he was there to help save those kids in Thailand, with no return whatsoever. The only reason why he did that is to help save those kids and get them back to their family. Yes, he didn’t dive into the cave but he was there trying to put input when putting the plan. He was also there willing to sacrifice his life, if he had to or if they asked him to. We say that Khaled Zaky is an example of a real hero. He should be proud of himself because he really did go the extra mile.
