All 12 boys and football coach rescued from Thai cave

10 July 2018 06:03 pm - 14     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


All 12 boys and their football coach have been rescued from a Thai cave after an 18-day ordeal, the Thai Navy SEALs said in a Facebook post on Tuesday evening, on the third day of a complex mission to bring them out.

“All 12 'Wild Boars' and coach have been extracted from the cave,” the post said.

“All are safe” it added, signing off with a “Hooyah”, a SEALs signature throughout the painstaking mission to get the boys out of the cave.

Four SEAL team divers -- including a doctor -- who stayed with the group were still to emerge, the Facebook post added.

In a day of high drama, the remaining five boys emerged in groups as evening approached, guided out by international divers and the SEALs, who have played an integral role throughout an unprecedented rescue mission.

The “Wild Boars” -- named after their team -- entered the Tham Luang cave complex on June 23. (AFP)

    Really happy and wish them full recovery. All the rescuers deserves models. After long time we here a happy news. At least from out side from the country. What we hear usually in this country is killings, Drugs, tax, robberies, rapes.

    The weakest of the group was the coach when they were found. He had refused any food and given all what they had for the consumption of the boys. Ranil please take not. While we travel in lorries with has a roof and seats, you get down luxury cars for your ministers.

    DHA; Not God! It was the Spirit of the Coach, who kept the boys alive, and in Good Spirits, with his Training as a Buddhist monk!

    I live in Australia,here the TV is going on about the Western rescuers involved in the rescue. But the credit belongs to the Thai rescue team who actually brought the young boys through the narrow waterway to safety.

    Thousands of People butchered everyday in Palestine, Syria,etc. in this world, no humanity feelings toward those innocent people why?

    I will tell you the reason why. Yours is the only religion that does not even recognise any other religion in this world and you all seem to believe that God belongs to you and only you. Then how do you expect others to have any sympathy for your problems.

    @Jaffna Tamil, There are good and bad people in every religion so you cannot blame the religion for that.Your comment shows how selfish you are and may be that`s the reason still you people are keep on fighting to solve your kitchen problems while everyone in Sri Lanka is facing problems daily.
