Rescue diver dies delivering oxygen to trapped Thai soccer team


A former Thai Navy SEAL diver, Saman Gunan, was delivering oxygen tanks to the youth soccer team trapped in a cave when he collapsed and died on his way out. His death, the first fatality in the rescue mission, further underscores the air supply crisis in the operation. A 3-mile oxygen line is now being rushed in, along with power and phone cables. NBC News’ chief global correspondent Bill Neely reports for TODAY from Chiang Rai, Thailand.
