The tense three-day rescue of twelve boys and their coach wrapped-up Tuesday, with all thirteen people successfully removed from a flooded cave in Thailand after being trapped underground for more than two weeks.
The Thai Navy SEALS confirmed the successful mission on their official Facebook page, noting that four rescuers, a doctor, and three SEALS remained in the cave an additional two hours before emerging.
“All 12 Wild Boars and coach have been extracted from the cave. Hooyah!” the post said. The Navy SEALS later wrote: “We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what. All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave.”
The high-stakes operation involved 19 divers, multiple doctors, and at least three SEALS.
“Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said Tuesday’s intricate and high-risk operation began just after 10 a.m. and involved 19 divers. A medic and three Thai Navy SEALs who have stayed with the boys on a small, dry shelf deep in the flooded cave will also come out,” writes Fox.
