The Wild Boar soccer team, comprised of boys aging from 11 to 16 and a coach who is 25-years-old, were exploring a cave in Thailand, became trapped in the cave on June 23rd, 2018 and were stuck for over two weeks. That day, a hefty rainfall flooded the entrance, trapping them inside. The team, when found, were 800-1,000 meters underground. Their belongings were found on the 24th and the team was found on July 2nd; all were found alive.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you,” was the first thing the boys said to the British divers who found the team 10 days after they were pronounced missing. They were given rough lessons on how to dive because some areas of the cave were completely submerged under rain water. Some of the boys didn’t know how to swim in the first place. Luckily, on July 8th, four of the boys were rescued.  To exit the cave, each boy was with two divers and the rescuers had about an 11- hour round trip.

Despite skin rashes, malnutrition, fluctuating emotions, and the death of one of the rescuers, all the players and their coach got out alive.
