UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — All 12 boys and their soccer coach have been rescued from the flooded Thailand cave after being trapped underground for more than two weeks.
The Thai Navy Seals team confirmed the news on Facebook, Tuesday, July 10.
The three-day rescue mission concluded on Tuesday when the 12th boy and his coach were the last of the team to be rescued.
Medical officials say all will have to stay in the hospital for at least seven days but the boys “seem to be in high spirits.”
The multi-national diving team led a risky and dangerous, yet successful mission to free the Wild Boars team.
However, Ex-Navy Seal Saman Kunan lost his life during the operation.
The team got stuck on June 23 after heavy rains blocked the entrance and forced them over 2 miles within the cave to find dry land.
