After 18 days, boys trapped in flooded cave are safe

CHIANG RAI, Thailand – All 12 boys and the football coach trapped in the Tham Luang cave on 23 June 2018 are out.

Confirming the completion of the rescue operation, the Thai Navy Seals, which coordinated the rescue operation, announced on Facebook: “All 12 Wild Boars and coach have been extracted from the cave. All are safe.”

The difficult manoeuvre started two days ago, when the first four boys were brought above ground.

Four others were saved yesterday and the last four boys arrived together with the coach a little while ago.

The operation will end, however, with the re-emergence of four rescuers, including a doctor, who remained with the football team when they were found.Asia News
