Drama in Thailand enters its 16th day after a youth soccer team became stuck in a cave with their coach.
All the boys as well as their coach have now safely been rescued.
The whole world has been holding its breath over rescue efforts in Thailand in the last couple of weeks.
On June 23, twelve boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach disappeared into Tham Luang Nan Non in northern Thailand. The cave system is 10 kilometers long, but the opening was blocked by heavy monsoon rain which has also made the search effort difficult.
On Monday, eight boys were rescued from the cave, according to Sky News. And on Tuesday afternoon, another positive outcome came from the rescue effort.
