Thailand's navy SEALs say all of the boys have been brought out of a flooded cave in the country's far north. Rescuers completed the mission Tuesday after rescuing four boys on each of the previous two days. The 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach were trapped by flooding in the cave more than two weeks ago.
The boys and their soccer coach were trapped in a flooded Thai cave for more than two weeks, the rescue leader said Tuesday, as health experts gave the eight already brought out a chocolate treat and described them as being in good spirits. At midafternoon, an ambulance was seen leaving the cave site. Officials in the previous two days have not confirmed rescues until the day's operation is over. Chiang Rai Gov.Narongsak Osatanakorn said Tuesday's intricate and high-risk operation began just after 10 a.m.
