Published

on

Now, this is everything a Doctor should be.

After having gone missing for over a week, when the Wild Boars football team was finally located inside the cave they managed to get stranded in. A hero was born.

Once he found out the group was located an Adelaide anesthetist cut his vacation in Thailand short and wasted no time in volunteering to help the rescue efforts by going in and assessing the boys’ health. And even more importantly actually staying with them for three days until the last player was rescued.

After his medical assessment and under his direction the weakest boys were given priority rescue with the others successfully following in the complex operation. It has been confirmed that Dr. Harris, who is known as Harry, was the final person to be rescued out of the cave.

Then tragic news came.

BBC reports:

“It was his rare combination of talents that led Australian doctor Richard Harris deep into the Tham Luang cave in Thailand.

When the Wild Boars football team was located deep inside the cave, after being missing for a week, the Adelaide anaesthetist abandoned his holiday in Thailand and volunteered to help.

He went in to assess the boys’ health and stayed with them for three days.

It was under his direction that the weakest boys were first led out with the others successfully following in the complex operation.

Dr Harris, known as Harry, is believed to have been one of the last rescuers out of the cave.

But relief and celebration were suddenly cut short by personal tragedy – on Wednesday it emerged that Dr Harris’s father had died shortly after the rescue’s finish.

The Adelaide doctor is globally renowned for his cave-diving expertise
His employer, South Australia’s ambulance service, said his family’s grief had been “magnified” by the physical and emotional demands of the rescue operation.

“It has been a tumultuous week with highs and lows,” Dr Andrew Pearce from MedSTAR said, asking for privacy.

“Harry is a quiet and kind man who did not think twice about offering his support on this mission.”

‘Integral part of the rescue’
Dr Harris was specifically identified by British divers and requested by the “highest levels” of the Thai government to join the rescue, according to the Australian government.

Divers stayed with the boys after they were found deep inside the cave
“He was an integral part of the rescue attempt,” said Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop who added that the doctor was internationally renowned for his cave rescue expertise.

“[The Australians] have been a big help, especially the doctor,” the leader of the rescue mission, acting Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotanakorn told an Australian Nine News reporter on Wednesday.

“Very good. The very best,” he said in reference to Dr Harris.

His friend Sue Crowe told the BBC the doctor was an unassuming and selfless family man, whose calm presence would have comforted the boys in the cave.

“He is brilliant with children, and he would have made sure that they were prepared in the best possible way from a cave-diving perspective,” she said.

“He would have been the perfect person to support them.”

On social media, there has been an outpouring of gratitude directed towards him.

Many have called for him to be made Australian of the Year – the nation’s highest civic honour – while the government has indicated there will be some formal recognition.

The experienced diver, also an underwater photographer, has completed several cave-diving expeditions in Australia, New Zealand, Christmas Island and China.

One tragic expedition in 2011, involved the retrieval of the body of his friend, Agnes Milowka, who ran out of air during a cave dive in South Australia.

Ms Bishop said the doctor is also known to authorities for his work on medical assistance teams in natural disasters in the Pacific region, and has taken part in Australian aid missions in Vanuatu.

“[He] is an extraordinary Australian and he has certainly made a big difference to the rescue effort here in Thailand,” she said.

She also praised his diving partner, Craig Challen, a vet from Perth who accompanied Dr Harris into the caves.

The pair were part of a team of 20 Australians, including police and navy divers, who assisted in the operation.”

There was even a huge outpouring of gratitude on social media.

But in a sad turn of events, the celebration was cut short when it was confirmed that Dr. Harris’ father had passed away just shortly after the rescue was completed.

His employer, which is South Australia’s ambulance service, in a statement confirmed that his family’s grief had been magnified immensely by the physical and emotional demands the rescue operation took on all of them while not knowing if they would ever see Harris again. “Harry is a quiet and kind man who did not think twice about offering his support on this mission.” said the spokesman.

On top of being a doctor, Harris is also an experienced diver who also does underwater photography. He has completed several cave-diving expeditions in Australia, New Zealand, Christmas Island and China. And sadly on one tragic expedition in 2011, he took part in the recovery of the body of one of his friends, Agnes Milowka, who ran out of air while in a cave dive in South Australia.

Mueller Begs McConnell For Protection Bill – He Responds With Something Better

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flatly rejected the need to approve legislation protecting the special counsel’s probe into the 2016 election, saying Wednesday there’s no evidence the investigation needs protection.

Mr. McConnell laid out Republicans’ goals for the lame-duck session of Congress, saying preventing a government shutdown is tops on the list, along with passing new rules to stop sexual harassment on Capitol Hill and approving a farm bill.

He flatly ruled out the chance of a partial government shutdown over border wall money and other spending fights.

And he dismissed the need for Congress to act on legislation Democrats and some Republicans want to protect special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I don’t think any legislation’s necessary,” Mr. McConnell said.

He said he speaks regularly with President Trump and while the president has made his distaste for the investigation clear, he’s never given an “indication” that he would attempt to shut down the probe.

Mr. McConnell said for his part he believes the investigation should be allowed to finish.

Democrats said they’re intent on getting Mueller protections approved during this lame-duck session of Congress.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Wednesday that those provisions, if they don’t pass as a stand-alone bill, need to be part of the year-end spending bill.

And Mr. Schumer drew lines over other parts of the spending bill, saying it should not go above the current $1.6 billion senators have included for new border security such as a wall.

Mr. Trump has demanded it include at least $5 billion in funding for his border wall. The House has passed a bill with that number, putting it on a crash course with senators.

Mr. Schumer said Congress should compromise by agreeing on the Senate’s number, and he told Mr. Trump to butt out of any negotiations.

“Every time he interferes, it gets bolluxed up,” the New York Democrat said.

Mr. Schumer also took a victory lap on last week’s election results, which saw his caucus likely lose one or two seats. The senator said that was still a victory for Democrats because it could have been much worse for them.

And he said voters sent a signal of support for Democrats’ policy ideas, which he said they’ll pursue even while in the minority in the Senate.

Elected Republican Majority Whip Just Announced – Will Shake Up The Senate

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Daily Caller

South Dakota Sen. John Thune was elected to serve as the Republican Majority Whip Wednesday.

Thune was nominated by former whip, Texas Sen. John Cornyn. This comes as Cornyn met his three-term limit in the position. The majority whip is the second-ranking position in Senate leadership.

Republicans voted for other leadership positions Wednesday, making Missouri Republican Sen. Roy Blunt the Policy Committee chairman, Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst was voted in as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference and Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso will serve as Senate Republican Conference chairman, according to The Hill.

Thune has served as chairman of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee since 2015. He will now have to step down as chairman, after taking his new job as majority whip.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised Cornyn Wednesday, giving him a Louisville slugger baseball bat with “To John Cornyn – The Best Whip Ever,” written on it.

Meanwhile, The Hill has more on Joni Ernst elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference:

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) has been elected to serve as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference, becoming the first woman to be elected to a Senate GOP leadership position since 2010.

Ernst, a veteran of the Iraq War who served a total of 23 years in the military, is considered a rising star among her colleagues.

She defeated Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) in the only contested Senate Republican leadership race after months of quiet campaigning in the conference.

Senate Republicans saw Ernst as someone who might be a better communicator for the conference on television, while Fischer garnered praise as someone who worked diligently behind the scenes to build relationships with members of GOP leadership.

Ernst emerged as the winner after Senate Republicans met in the Old Senate Chamber on Wednesday morning to vote on the new leadership team for the 116th Congress.

McConnell was reelected as Senate majority leader, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) was elected as majority whip, Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) was elected as Senate Republican Conference chairman and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) was elected as Senate Republican Policy Committee chairman.

Ernst burst onto the national scene in 2014 with an ad recounting her upbringing on a farm where she castrated hogs and pledging that she would “make ‘em squeal” in Washington by cutting pork.

Senate Republicans say McConnell has been eager to add a woman to his elected leadership team after he came under criticism in 2017 for not appointing a woman to a special health-care working group he created.

A woman has not served as a member of the elected Senate GOP leadership since 2010, when Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) stepped down as vice chairwoman of the GOP conference after losing her primary race to conservative challenger Joe Miller.

Former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) served as chairman of the Republican Policy Committee from 2007 to 2009, the highest-ranking position a woman has held in the Senate GOP leadership since Sen. Margaret Chase Smith (R-Maine) chaired the Senate Republican Conference in the early 1970s.

Fischer and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) already serve as informal counselors on McConnell’s leadership team.

Senate Republicans also came under scrutiny during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings over the all-male GOP membership of the Judiciary Committee.

McConnell says one of his priorities is to recruit more women to the Judiciary panel.
