THAI NAVY RESCUE

AMN

Much to the relief world over, all 12 boys and football coach have been rescued from flooded Thailand cave. A Thai Navy official says the last person in a group trapped in a flooded cave in northern Thailand was rescued on Tuesday.

12 young members of a soccer team and their coach were caught in the cave on June 23rd when heavy rain inundated the site.

Rescuers started to bring them out on Sunday and completed the mission in 3 days.

The coach was one of the last to be extricated from the cave on Tuesday in the rescue operation that began as a local search for the missing but turned into a complex mission, involving hundreds of experts who flew in from around the world to help, CNN reported.

The 12 young footballers, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach went missing in Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand’s Chiang Rai Province on June 23.

The boys were found inside the cave by British rescue divers a week ago, about 4 km from the cave mouth. They belong to a football club called the Wild Boars and became trapped during an excursion with their coach.

Thirteen foreign cave diving experts and five Thai Navy rescuers joined the first operation on Sunday that brought out four boys from the cave. Rescuers spent about 11 hours on the mission. Another four boys were extracted by the same team on Monday.

The remaining four boys and their coach were rescued on Tuesday and were sent to hospital by helicopters. They underwent X-rays and blood tests and will remain under observation in the hospital for at least seven days.

After the successful and perilous rescue mission, it would take some time for the divers of the rescue team to evacuate from the cave. After their evacuation, the cave would be closed, according to Thai rescue operation officials.

The eight boys extracted on Sunday and Monday were being treated in hospital and were in good condition, according to hospital sources.

Chinese volunteer divers who joined the rescue mission called it a “tremendous and very dangerous operation”.
