Well, they have almost gotten the last of them out. I love caves but they can be dangerous. Glad they are ok.

Yes, I've been praying for them.

Bigguy

From what the news says they are all ok so other than a story they get to tell their friends they should be good to go. :)

So far 8 boys have been rescued. 4 boys and their coach remain in the cave.

Operations have been temporarily suspended until tomorrow. 

While the divers involved really are the best the world has to offer for such a situation, the dangers remain very real especially with rain falling.

So keep praying if you are that way inclined. May be another day or two before everyone is out, and hopefully they all come out alive.

Unfortunately there has been one death - former Thai navy SEAL, Petty Officer First Class Saman Gunan, 37.  He died in cold waters deep inside the cave complex after he ran out of air. He'd just delivered some air tanks for use in the rescue.

R.I.P.

I did not hear that, damn. I thought they were all safe. R.I.P.

Yeah, that's great to hear this is solved. Very awesome no one was hurt.

Steve

Shame the rescue had to be marred by the death of that ex seal ... still, an amazing rescue nonetheless.

Damn I forgot about him. I should change my post above. It is a shame. Good rescue though. We gotta focus on the good but never forget how we got there.

Yep an absolutely incredible result, and the consolation that the diver's family has it that his work contributed in a big way to make that near-miracle possible.

I see that the Hollywood types are already over there snooping about and trying to get people to sign their stories away....

Expect any eventual Hollywood version to be 'not very similar' to what actually happened.

Soccer teams from all over the world (Man Utd, Barcelona - I think - and a few others) have invited the boys on trips to play at their ground and meet the teams etc.

Let's hope the poor buggers aren't left with any PTSD or significant mental scars from their ordeal.  Being stuck without food in a dark cave for 10 days before being found... scary shit.

Yeah, I personally think they should give the boys a bit of time to relax and recoup after an ordeal like that. Not just show up the same day they come out and say "Sign this please, you'll be rich".

Ya know, it's situations like this that restore a little of my faith in mankind. Three events come to mind immediately ... little Jessica in the well, the Colombian miners, and now, the kids in Thailand.

And then, like you say, come the wolves ...  >:(
