A total of twelve boys and their football coach who had been trapped in a cave in Thailand for nine days have been thankfully found alive and safe today.
According to RTE News, the governor of Chiang Rai said that rescue teams have found all 13 people with signs of life in all being reported.
It’s understood that rescuers made a passageway for divers to access a part of the cave that was inaccessible for a number of days.
The boys are all aged between 11 and 16 and their coach is aged 25. They disappeared on the 23rd of June during an excursion to the Tham Luang cave, which is 10km beneath the mountains in northern Chiang Rai province.
There was no trace of the boys until this afternoon when rescue workers, which included crews of over 1,000 people in total, finally made the breakthrough.
