All 12 boys and coach rescued from Thai cave
July 10, 2018 -- Rescuers working in northern Thailand have successfully brought out all 12 boys and their football coach from the flooded Tham Luang cave system after a complex three-day rescue mission.
The plight of the boys and their coach has riveted Thailand and much of the world — from the heart-sinking news that they were missing to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys when they were found 10 days later by a pair of British divers. They were trapped in the cave that became flooded by monsoon rains while they were exploring it after a soccer practice on June 23.
The eight boys brought out by divers on Sunday and Monday were doing well and were in good spirits, a senior health official said Tuesday.
