#ThaiCaveRescue : Twitterati are praising the brave rescue operation team! But how did boys become trapped? How did the Thai soccer team end up in the cave?

Twelve boys and their football coach were trapped in the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand since 23 June. Their ordeal has drawn huge media attention in Thailand and abroad, and getting the boys out safely could be a boost for Thailand’s ruling junta ahead of a general election next year.

4 of 12 Thai schoolboys were rescued from the cave on 8 July 2018 in a daring and dangerous operation to save the children and their soccer coach who have been trapped underground for more than two weeks. The divers launched a daring and dangerous mission to free the children and their soccer coach who have been trapped underground for more than two weeks.

The operation to rescue the remaining eight boys – some as young as 11 and weak swimmers – and the coach was called off at nightfall until Monday to give the divers time to replenish oxygen supplies and ensure all preparations were complete.

The trapped group consists of boys aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old football coach.

They disappeared after deciding to explore the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai province following a football game on June 23.

Once in the cave, ring water levels from rain forced the team to wander further in, in hopes for shelter.

Since their discovery the group have been cared for by members of the Thai Navy SEALS, among them medical experts.

The cave system is a snaking complex with a number of chambers already submerged in water.
