All 12 boys and their football coach have been successfully rescued from a cave in northern Thailand after more than two weeks trapped underground.

“The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe,” the Thai navy Seal unit said on its official Facebook page. It added: “Hooyah”.

The final boy emerged into the daylight at around 6pm local time.

They have now been ferried to a hospital in the city of Chiang Rai.

Behind them are a doctor and four Thai Navy SEALs which are yet to emerge. On their Facebook page, the SEALs posted a message which said: “Tonight, all the Wild Boars will be reunited.”

On Tuesday, a team of 19 divers helped escort the last team members out.

The eleventh boy came to the surface at 5.15pm local time, the tenth at around 4.30pm local time and the ninth just minutes earlier at 4.06pm.

Four boys emerged on Monday and four on Sunday.


  1. Then Sinkamba says thst he was going to send specialists from the mines no man those are caves not a mine very different.
    Egen simple rescue operations pa zed ya shupa what more ku Thailand!
    Fimo mule leka fye.

    • Never mind Mr Chinkamba takes something too strong ????. Believe me he was very high when he was saying all that bull.s.hit! In Zambia ???????? it is like everyone is taking something nowadays. But sometimes the man says perfectly sensible things but at other times, even Kadansa makes far much more sense than ba Chinkamba! ????????????????

    • Sinkamba was right. He knew what he was talking about. Any mining engineer can work on all sorts of rock formations. Operations at Chilanga, Ndola Lime, and other cement operations are limestone geological formations. Mining engineers trained at UNZA and CBU run those mines. Lusaka sits on a limestone formation. The mining engineers who recovered the borehole victims were from ZCCM Nkana, now KCM and Mopani. They could have assisted to deal with pumping water out of the caves which delayed the rescue operation for two days because inexperienced volunteers who were assisting to pump the water out of the caves were actually pumping it back. So they ended up doing a double job for inexperience

    • By the way those borehole victims were D E A D !
      Sometimes muleipima first bane don’t overate yourselves!
      The Thai navey seals were assisted but expert UK cave divers who had to get police escorts to catch a plane on time.
      US experts where on hand ascwell as Australian.
      Stop trivialising issue apa bunda bwa kwita ati engineer so and so!

  2. Like i stated caves are not like a mine where you tunnel through; this is limestone we are taking about with entrances BUFFOON CK can hardly fit his thigh….experienced British cave divers were sent in ..
