BANGKOK, July 10. /TASS/. All the 13 people who remained trapped in Thailand’s Khao Luang cave for more than two weeks have been brought out, the Thai Navy said on Facebook, adding that the 12 kids and their coach were safe.
On June 23, national park staff found a motorbike, bicycles and sports equipment near a cave entrance and contacted a local football club, which confirmed that those things belonged to 12 kids aged between 11 and 16 years and their 25-year-old coach. The cave where the group went missing stretches almost ten kilometers, it has several entrances and exits, as well as large chambers, where the group members found shelter from the rising waters caused by a rainy season downpour.
On July 8-9, divers succeeded in evacuating eight children, who were taken to the hospital in helicopters. On Tuesday, rescue workers brought out the remaining four kids and the coach.
