Thai Cave Kids Found Alive

It's being reported that Thai rescue crews have found 12 young Thai soccer players and their coach alive inside a flooded cave. From NBC News:

The boys and their soccer coach were located nine days after first entering the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex, Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, said Monday night local time.

The governor said rescue teams will send doctors and food to help, but more water needed to be pumped out of the caves before those trapped can be rescued. 
“We found them safe. But the operation isn’t over," the governor said, according to The Associated Press.

Great news in these troubled times, Mound. Thanks!

Great news it is, Lorne. I had been dreading that someone would say, "okay, Day 8 (or Day 9), that's it. We're calling off the search." These kids are alive because they didn't give up - on the outside of the cave and deep inside it also.

This team of juvenile soccer players are showing world cup class spirit and endurance.

May our thoughts be with them.

Perhaps one of the world cup teams will give support to the rescue?
