Twelve children and their soccer coach that were trapped in the Tham Luang cave in Thailand during a field trip have been rescued by a multinational coalition of rescue teams that includes 90 divers. The effort was ramped up in urgency as monsoon rains threaten the region, which could increase flooding in the cave.
Each child was let out from the cave by two divers one by one, according to former Chiang Rai province governor Narongsak Osottanakorn. There’s no word if the children needed to dive to get out as earlier reports indicated they would need to.
Medical teams have been rehearsing for the boys’ rescue for the last three days and are ready to treat the group when they are rescued.
