A Thai youth soccer team and its coach have been found alive in a vast cave complex where they disappeared more than a week ago, the regional governor said Monday.
“We found them safe,” Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said late Monday “But the operation isn’t over.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Osotthanakorn said they were found in the area near the so-called Pattaya Beach. He said the rescue was underway and that the conditions of the group was being evaluated.
Twelve players, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach had been stranded for 10 days in the Tham Luang Nang Non caves in Thailand’s rugged, mountainous Chiang Rai province. Thai military helicopters, remotely operated underwater vehicles and two drones equipped with heat detectors assisted in the effort.
The U.S. Pacific Command sent a 30-person rescue team to northern Thailand to aid the desperate search, which began when a mother reported her son had not returned from soccer practice. The group had not been heard from since they disappeared June 23.
