Celebrations Erupt After Dramatic Rescue of 12 Boys From Submerged Cave 2 Miles Deep
By McKinley Corbley – Jul 10, 2018

*** begin quote ***

After an emotionally turbulent 18-day ordeal, all 12 of the Thai boys who were trapped in an elaborate cave system with their assistant coach have been rescued and brought to safety.

The boys, who are all members of the Wild Boars soccer team, had been exploring the Tham Luang caves in Thailand with their 25-year-old soccer coach when rising water levels trapped them inside of the caverns. As the tunnels continued to flood, the group was forced further and further inside the system until they had traveled 2 and a half miles into the caves.

Let’s not forget that one man lost his life in this effort.

I still don’t understand why they were in there in the first place?
