A moment to remember- the cave rescue : Elation as Thai boys and coach freed by divers
hey everyone, its @joseid, just wanted to show how well the life of every human should be cherished no matter the background,country, and so on... this is a detailed explanation of what transpired in thailand earlier on, enjoy!
So what transpired?
Seventeen days after 12 boys and their football coach from flooded caves in northern Thailand got trapped underground,plight and complex long days of operation to free them gripped the world's attention.
There were cheers around the #Tham_Luang cave system in the country's Chiang Rai province as a rescue operation involving dozens of divers and hundreds of other rescue workers came to an end on Tuesday evening.
At the house just below the mountains, there was laughter, shouts and cheers - and people shook hands in a very un-Thai way.
In Chiang Rai, the news was embraced by the honking of car horns while people gathered outside the hospital - where all those rescued from the caves were taken for treatment - broke into applause.
On social media, Thais showed their feelings about the rescuers by using hashtags including #Heroes and #Thankyou.
Offers of hospitality for the boys, the coach and their rescuers have come in from international football clubs including Manchester United and Benfica.
How it happened
The group was cut off on 23 June after heavy rains flooded their way back out of Tham Luang.
Aged between about 11 and 17, the members of the Wild Boars football team had entered the cave system during an excursion with their coach.The boys, aged between 11 and 17, became trapped with their coach on 23 June
They were found by British divers last week, huddled in darkness on a ledge.
Elation at the discovery of all 13 members of the group alive quickly turned to concern as it emerged just how difficult it would be to rescue boys who could not swim and had been weakened by their time underground.
The complex, three-day operation saw four boys emerge on Sunday, four on Monday, and the final four boys plus their coach on Tuesday. All were immediately taken to hospital, but they are said to be in reasonable condition given their ordeal.Confirming the completion of the rescue operation, the Thai Navy Seals Facebook page announced: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, science, or what. All the 13 Wild Boars are now out of the cave."
The first eight boys to be rescued - on Sunday and Monday - are still in hospital but said to be in good mental and physical health, and have now been joined by the four boys and the 25-year-old coach who were rescued on Tuesday.
X-rays and blood tests have been ordered, and they will remain under observation in hospital for at least seven days.

The boys lost weight during their time in the caves and are keen to eat. They are said to have requested a favourite pork dish, bread and chocolate, but solid food will have to be reintroduced slowly to prevent any digestive upset.
They will also need to wear sunglasses for a few days until their eyes readjust to the brighter light.
A team of 90 expert divers - 40 from Thailand and 50 from overseas - worked in the Tham Luang caves.
They guided the boys and their coach through darkness and submerged passageways towards the mouth of the cave system.Getting to and from the trapped group was an exhausting round trip, even for experienced divers.
The process included a mixture of walking, wading, climbing and diving along guide ropes.
Wearing full-face masks, which are easier for novice divers than traditional respirators, each boy was accompanied by two divers, who also carried his air supply.
this is enough proof of the love all around us, the value in each of us, the equity in diversity...
