Four Boys Rescued From Flooded Thai Cave


Four of the 12 boys who were trapped with their coach in a flooded cave in Thailand have been rescued, according to the BBC.

The boys and their coach were found last week, and they have been taught rudimentary scuba skills to help get them out. Rescuers are hoping to get the rest of the group out in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Suunto Diving UK is running a blind auction to raise money for the British Cave Rescue Council, which has sent specialized cave divers to Thailand to help with the rescue efforts.

In the true story of Thirteen Lives, twelve boys and the coach of a Thai soccer team explore the Tham Luang cave when an unexpected rainstorm traps them in a chamber inside the mountain. Entombed behind a maze of flooded cave tunnels, they face impossible odds. A team of world-class divers navigate through miles of dangerous cave networks to discover that finding the boys is only the beginning.
