Must Watch: Thai Soccer team trapped in caves have all been safely rescued


The whole world watched as rescue missions were planned and executed to save 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach, trapped in flooded caves.


The world has collectively sighed a massive sigh of relief after the 12 soccer boys and their coach got trapped in flooded caves after heavy rainfall.

They predicted that today would be the day of the final rescue attempt and it has been a success. All 13 young men have been rescued after spending two weeks trapped.

British divers found the 12 players and their coach, hungry and huddled in darkness on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber about 4 kilometres inside the caves last week Monday. A combined effort between multiple countries took place to plan an effective rescue mission. The Thai Navy Seals shared the happy news on their Facebook page saying,

“The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe,” – Thai Navy Seal Unit   

Adding, “Hooyah” to sign off.

Thankfully all of the young men trapped have been taken to the hospital where they are expected to stay for the next week. They will be put through a few health tests and quarantined in case of infection before heading home to their families.

Elon Musk was one of the people who contributed to the rescue mission, he went into the cave on Monday and left the rescue team with a “kid-sized” submarine his company SpaceX had built.

“Just returned from Cave 3. Mini-sub is ready if needed. It is made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after the kids’ soccer team. Leaving here in case it may be useful in the future.” – Elon Musk

It is a happy day! And we are keeping Saman Kunan’s family in our thoughts!
