    Indeed it is wonderful news.

    It makes a change to hear a good news story, which is genuinely good news for all concerned.

    For some reason I retained a glimmer of hope about these poor kids. Youth is incredibly resilient..

    What marvellous news. Their poor parents....terror and despair changed to joy and relief.

    With all the horror in the world, a happy ending is so rare and so wonderful.

    Thank God.

    "The football team went into the cave on June 23 after a training session and became stranded when heavy rains cut them off from the entrance.
    [...]
    A sign outside the site warns visitors not to enter the cave during the rainy season between July and November
    ".
