REPORT: All Boys And Coach Freed From Thai Cave

Rescuers pull an eleventh boy from deep within a cave complex in northern Thailand as officials embark on the third day of what is expected to be a huge international operation.

Eight of the 12 boys who had been trapped within the flooded cave were freed during the first two days of the operation, which is spearheaded by Thailand’s Navy Seal Team.

The ninth and eleventh children are now recovering in hospital and are said to be “healthy.” (RELATED: Eighth Boy Rescued From Flooded Cave In Thailand, Witness Says)

“I hope all four kids … the coach, and the doctor and three SEALs will be all out today,” former Chiang Rai governor and rescue mission commander Narongsak Osotthanakorn told local reporters Tuesday.

Tuesday’s operation was expected to take longer than the two previous days, according to the Facebook page of the Royal Thai Navy SEALs.

The “Wild Boars” soccer team and their coach got trapped on June 23 when heavy rains flooded the tunnels in a cave the boys were exploring after practice.

The team of boys, ages 11 to 16, are trapped in a cave located in the northern part of Thailand in the Chiang Rai province.
