All 12 boys, coach of Thailand soccer team rescued from cave Tuesday July 10,2018

All 12 boys and their football coach, who were trapped in a flooded Thailand Cave more than a fortnight, have been rescued, the country's Navy SEAL announced on July 10, 2018completing an astonishing against-the-odds rescue mission that has captivated the world.

The Thai SEAL and elite foreign divers extracted the final batch of four boys, plus the 25-year-old coach, on July 10 afternoon via a perilous escape route that required them to squeeze through narrow, water-filled tunnels.

“All 12 ‘Wild Boars’ and coach have been extracted from the cave,” the SEAL said in a Facebook post.

“All are safe,” they added, signing off with what has become their trademark “Hooyah” to celebrate the successful extractions of other boys over the previous two days.

A medic and all Navy SEAL divers had also left the cave safely, said chief of the rescue mission Narongsak Osottanakorn.

The 12 boys, aged from 11 to 16, and their coach, ventured into the Tham Luang cave in mountainous northern Thailand on June 23 after a football practice and got caught deep inside when heavy rains caused flooding that trapped them on a muddy ledge.
