    Default Thailand Boys and Coach lost in cave found alive

    Wonderful news.

    It appears the 12 soccer boys and their coach who went missing in a cave have been found alive.

    It reminded me of the Chilean miners being rescued many years ago.

    I feel sorry for the coach - I think he may be in a bit of trouble for bringing the boys down a cave during flooding season. There were signs outside the entrance to the cave warning of the dangers.

    "Twelve boys and their football coach who were trapped in a cave in Thailand for nine days have been 'found safe'.

    This afternoon Chiang Rai governor said rescue teams had discovered all 13 in the cave with 'signs of life'.

    They seem to be too weak to move. Getting them out may be a long process.

    Great news. I wasn't very optimistic for their outcome.

    Was not expecting this story to end like this, hopefully they can all get out alive now. But
    a bit to go yet , Monsoon rains hindering the rescue.

    Great news, the world could use some. I wasn't anticipating a happy outcome here.

    That's the first I've read of this. They were locals and knew the cave complex well, apparently.

    Devout Buddhists would say the happy outcome was due to the nation's prayers.
    Brexit comes straight from hell. Everywhere it goes it causes disharmony, turbulence and misery. I think Brexiteers themselves must have some form of mental illness.

    Pictures of the boys just after their rescue are now appearing. They appear to be in good health and obviously very happy.
