It Could Take Several Months To Rescue 12 Boys And Their Coach From Thailand Cave After All Are Found Alive

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

The missing group of Thai youth soccer players (ages 11-16) and their 25 year-old coach have been found alive, though a bit worse for wear after nine days trapped in a northern Thailand cave. 

Despite a massive effort, including a coalition of 1000 international divers, rescue workers, and other personnel all working together to find and rescue these 12 boys and their coach, it may still be months before any of them see the light of day and their families again. 

Rescue efforts have been severely hampered by continuing heavy rains in the region that blocked access to chambers where it was hoped the team was surviving.
