Thai cave rescue operation ends successfully


All 12 members of a Thai youth football team and their coach have been brought safely out of the cave in northern Thailand.

The 12 boys and their coach were trapped by floods more than two weeks ago when they went on an expedition in a cave.

Two years ago, the team’s 25 year old coach took them to the same place for site seeing.

Eight boys were rescued on Sunday and Monday, they are still in hospital but have not been named and are being kept in quarantine

Each person was pulled through the cave by expert divers.

A rescue doctor and three Navy Seals who stayed with the group are yet to emerge.

In congratulating rescue team, US President Donalld Trump Tweeted: “On behalf of the United States, congratulations to the Thai Navy SEALs and all on the successful rescue of the 12 boys and their coach from the treacherous cave in Thailand. Such a beautiful moment – all freed, great job!”/BBC
