    Trapped cave soccer team are FREE: All 12 boys and their coach have been saved from flooded Thai tunnels in daring mission

    All 12 youth football players (bottom right) and their coach Ekaphol Chantawong, 25, (inset right) are now reported to have been rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand after a three-day operation. The final four school boys and their coach, who had been trapped in the Tham Luang Cave in Chiang Rai for 18 days, were carried out on stretchers to waiting ambulances on Tuesday afternoon local time.

    Among those extracted today is t he youngest member of the team, 11-year-old Chanin Wiboonrungruang, whose nickname is Titan. The governor of the rescue mission had previously said Tuesday's operation would be more difficult than the previous two days, due to the increased number of people who need to be evacuated. Following the final five will be four Thai Navy SEALs - including a medic - who will be extracted once the team are freed today.

    I think hero. He made an error going into the cave when he did, so far as I can see, but he then kept those boys together and alive under what must have been very trying circumstances.

    More on the coach, from BBC News:

    "Assistant coach Ekapol Chantawong, 25, was said to be the weakest of the group when they were found, as he had reportedly refused to eat any of the food and gave it instead to the boys."

    Finally, it took so long.

    Nah, imo he just want to motivate his students and didn't consider the risk of doing it.

    I join my husband in rejoicing on the rescue. I urge all parents to teach their children to swim. It is a healthy activity one that serves them well in life. Besides it allowed me to learn the joys of windsurfing.
    As for the coach. He is a hero in this event.
    Blessed be
    Rikki

    What the hell Musk?...

    Elon Musk calls hero diver a 'pedo' and questions if he was even part of Thai cave rescue in extraordinary rant after the caver dismissed the billionaire's plan saying he 'can stick his submarine where it hurts'

    Tesla CEO and billionaire Elon Musk has launched a vicious Twitter rant against the heroic British caver who helped rescue 12 trapped Thai schoolboys after he rubbished Musk's own rescue plans.

    wat
    though i have to say i did suspect something about their trainer, suspicions that only ended after he did a interview
    but seriously, the diver?????
    this after his mars artificial sun comment, donald trump style twitter mis-use and plain ridiculous and extremely optimistic mars plan (landing in 2025), makes me suspect he isn't as mentally stable as he claims to be
