All 12 boys and the coach are OUT of the cave. The moment we have been waiting for. Their conditions still unknown, all making their way to the hospital in Chiang Rai. Amazing, amazing news.— Matt Rivers (@MattRiversCNN) July 10, 2018
All 12 Trapped Thai Soccer Players and Coach Rescued From Thai Cave!
The last remaining member of the Wild Boars soccer team and his coach have been pulled out of a flooded cave in Thailand, bringing an end to a near three-week ordeal that prompted a huge international rescue effort.
The twelfth boy and the coach were the last of the team to be rescued Tuesday, after a complicated three-day operation to extricate the team, who became trapped on June 23 when rising flood water cut off the exit, deep inside the cave.
In the last 18 days, what began as a local search for the missing 13 turned into a complex rescue operation, involving hundreds of experts who flew in from around the world to help.
The parents of the boys have maintained a constant vigil outside the cave since they went missing, praying for their safe return.
