Timeline: Thai cave rescue

8 Boys Reportedly Now Rescued From Thai Cave Following Second Rescue Operation

In the speech which lasted 3.45 minutes, he extended his "sincerest gratitude" to all who had been involved in the 17-day operation, including volunteers, government officials, private companies and the media, as well as the moral support given by people from across the world.

On June 23, national park staff found a motorbike, bicycles and sports equipment near a cave entrance and contacted a local football club, which confirmed that those things belonged to 12 kids aged between 11 and 16 years and their 25-year-old coach.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said that the successful rescue at Tham Luang will set an example for other rescue operations in the future.


After hours of unconfirmed reports from sources within the rescue mission, Thai Navy Seals have just confirmed that eight boys are out - with four evacuated from the Tham Luang cave today. "Such a lovely moment - all freed, great job!"

Rescue crews in Thailand are working against the clock and Mother Nature to free the remaining boys who have been trapped inside a cave with their adult soccer coach for more than two weeks.

Our foreign Minister Julie Bishop says the rescue operation is particularly treacherous - made more so by the fact that numerous boys are unable to swim. Heavy rainfall was reported at the cave area before dawn Monday, July 9, 2018.
