This is really good news – at least 4, and possibly 6, of the trapped kids in a Thailand cave have been rescued.
More about the rescue:
Four of the 12 boys trapped with their soccer coach in a cave in Thailand for 16 days were successfully extracted by divers in an hours-long subterranean rescue mission that has gripped the attention of the world, according to the Thai Navy SEALs.
The international effort to save the group has paired elite divers in “buddy teams” with the remaining eight boys and their coach.
The first four boys who were rescued, described as the weakest of the group, were removed from the cave a couple of minutes apart, immediately placed into ambulances and rushed to a hospital, authorities told ABC News. The conditions of the boys were not immediately known.
That is great – there’s still many more to rescue, and one diver has already died, so they’re not out of danger, but at least it’s a start.
Trump has already tweeted about it:
The U.S. is working very closely with the Government of Thailand to help get all of the children out of the cave and to safety. Very brave and talented people!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 8, 2018
