>> How many of you? 15? Brilliant.>> This was the moment rescuers and the rescued had been praying for.>> 12 school boy soccer players and their coach found at last nine days after disappearing in a flooded cave complex in Northern Thailand. The boys aged between 11 and 16 went missing with their 25 year old coach on June 23rd.
They had visited the 10 kilometer cave complex, but for more than a week the only clue had been their belongings left at the entrance, and handprints on the wall. After a search hampered by heavy rains that had flooded the caves and blocked the way out, divers late Monday eventually reached an elevated chamber where it was thought the group may have taken refuge.
And that's where they were, hungry, tired, but relieved. Medical teams were sent in to assess their health. And the boys and their coach were given food, while rescuers planned a strategy to get them all back to the outside world.>> Ten days. You are very strong.
