Where 13 lives were trapped deep inside the cave after they went in at possibly the worst timing. Once they realized that water started coming in, it was too late and the only chance of survival was relocating deeper and deeper into the cave.
The event might have begun as a local concern as the boys did not return home for the first few days, but as time moved on, specialized rescue teams came in from all over the world to help rescue the young boars and the coach. As days slowly passed by, the whole world prayed and wished for the successful rescue of the Moo Pah Academy.
The boys were laying still surviving on water drops from the cave at a location over 4 Kilometers deep from the entrance of the cave. The diving time was over 10 hours to and back due to the heavy currents and extremely dangerous cave routes, even for the most experienced drivers that were involved in the rescue.
From the beginning till the end, the young boars were in Tham Luang for over 17 days. Their life today is thanks to the brains of the Coach, local and international divers, cave specialists, rescue teams, medical teams, the water pumps, and everyone involved local and international.
Khaosod reports that even on the 11th of this month before the official opening of visitation, many locals and tourists have gathered in front of the cave just to catch a glimpse of the beauty around and within the Tham Luang Nang Non. Over 90% of the cave has been renovated for better visitation by visitors.
