Twelve Thai boys and their football coach were on Monday found miraculously alive in a cave complex by two British divers after surviving for nine days cut off by flood waters inside a Thai cave complex.
The British team last week joined army rescue workers as they searched the pitch black of the vast vast Tham Luang cave network in northern Thailand.
Footage of the moment they were found shows the team, dressed in their red strip, looking remarkably calm as they sit on a ledge.
Four British rescuers in total joined Navy Seals and soldiers in the desperate search. Well Done to you all. 23.11 น. รอยยิ้มของทีมสนับสนุนต่างชาติ หลังจากทราบข่าวดี ว่าพบ 13 คนในถ้ำหลวงและทั้งหมดปลอดภัย #ถ้ำหลวง #13ชีวิตต้องรอด #ทีมหมูป่า รส.
Rescuers working to free boys and their coach from the flooded cave after the dramatic discovery
- Thailand cave rescue – live updates
Twelve boys and their football coach missing in caves in Thailand for nine days have been found by divers, in a drama that has gripped the nation.
They were discovered by two British divers on a ledge in a cavern after a marathon search operation in the Tham Luang caves in Chiang Rai.
The challenge now will be to extract the party safely, with rising water and mud impeding access.
Families of the missing group were ecstatic at news of the rescue.
Rescuers had hoped they would find safety on a ledge in an underground chamber nicknamed Pattaya Beach but they were found 400m (440 yards) away having moved to higher ground to avoid the rising water.
