A group of twelve boys and their football coach had been trapped in a cave in Thailand. Now after a search of 9 days, the rescue teams have found the group and carried out the rescue. All of them have found alive and the video of the mammoth search operation carried out by divers from the Thai Navy SEAL unit has come up.
The boys aged between 11 and 16 went missing with their 25-year old coach when they headed out for a group outing at the Tham Luang cave complex in Chiang Rai. But they were stranded when there was heavy and continuous downpour of rain, which started flooding the cave. The rescue teams had to battle their way through thick mud and rising water to reach the group.
Take a look at the rescue video of the Thai guys from the cave:
In the video clip, a rescue worker can be heard talking and encouraging the group of boys to stay strong. The boy was asking for reassurance from the rescue member. "You have been here 10 days, you are very strong", the rescuer is heard telling the group. The boys are seen as immensely grateful to the rescue team and asking about their whereabouts. The rescuers had been working on making a passageway for divers deep inside the cave. There were two options either to wait for the waters to reside or undertake the operation with the help of divers.
Chang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn has also assured about the health check of boys and their coach. "We will look after them until they can return to school," he had said. The boys have now been rescued and their relatives are very happy and cheering to receive the good news. The video footage is scary and shows how difficult it was for the trapped and also those who were rescued.
