Bratchley was one of the rescue divers who saved a Thailand Soccer team from a cave previous year. Specially trained divers went in to look for him at about 6 p.m. and he was rescued nearly an hour later, officials said.

Jackson County Rescue is working with the Chattanooga Hamilton County Rescue Service and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Bratchley was said to be found inside an "air bell" in the cave, which is an enclosed space between the cave's roof and the water surface that luckily contained enough air for the diver to survive, ABC News reports.

Bratchley was evaluated by medical crews on scene and refused medical treatment.

It was then confirmed that Josh had been rescued from the flooded cave.

Millions of people around the world were captivated by the rescue mission.

Josh Bratchley, an experienced diver and meteorologist, was reported missing after he failed to resurface from a flooded cave in Jackson County, Tennessee.

When the tourists returned from a dive around 3 p.m. Tuesday, they could not account for one of the members of their group.

While professional divers and crews worked to locate Bratchley in Mill Pond Cave throughout the day, a USA rescue team with trained divers from Arkansas and Florida were on their way to help with the search mission.

Expert divers were flown in from Arkansas and Florida and a rescue dive began at around 6pm on Wednesday evening.

He was part of a team of British cave diving experts who helped to save 12 schoolboys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand previous year.

Nine months have passed since a team of divers helped 12 young Thai soccer players out of a cave in which they were trapped for almost three weeks.
