WOAHH... I am so happy for the boys and ALL of their families involved!
All 12 members && the coach of the boys' soccer team who became trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand last month are now free!!
CNN reports that the last four boys and the coach were extracted from the cave on Tuesday, with 19 divers assisting in the third phase of the rescue operation. Four of the boys had been rescued on Sunday and an additional four were removed from the cave on Monday after they all became trapped on June 23 while exploring the cave.
Apparently the strongest boys were reportedly taken out first because they had the best chance of surviving the escape route.
Authorities are saying they are in "good health," but will be quarantined for a week for observation. Before the final rescue attempt, it was unknown whether the four remaining boys and their coach would make it out on Tuesday amid forecasts of heavy rainfall. Meanwhile, Thai authorities are asking people to "send their support" to the four Navy SEAL divers who have yet to emerge from the cave after Tuesday's rescue.
President Trump went on Twitter to congratulate the Thai Navy Seals on their incredible work!
