Everyone has officially been rescued from the Thai cave

Everyone has been rescued from the Thai cave! All 12 boys (around the ages of 11 – 16) and their football coach are finally out of the cave, where they have been trapped for 2 weeks due to heavy rainfall, which caused the cave to collapse.

Amazingly, all of them were rescued within 3 days of starting the rescue operation. This also includes a doctor and 3 members of the Thai army, who were present with the boys throughout this scary ordeal. Sadly, however, 1 diver died when trying to rescue the boys on Friday.

Even more good news is that they are all unharmed, have no infection, illness or eye problems, so until they have finished their short stay in hospital, they will be free to go about their daily lives.

Dutch company helped with rescue operation

The Netherlands and the rest of the world have been watching this story unfold and I’m sure everyone will be delighted at this amazing news. I’m sure at some point literally all of us saw this as an impossible task – amazing! A pump service company in Friesland (Van Heck Group) helped with the operations by pumping water out of the cave. As we all know, the Dutch are pretty good at water management, so their expertise for these operation was probably of some use. So it’s good news all round for the boys. Well done to the brave divers!
