Rescue finally underway

Following 16 days of being trapped in a cave in Thailand, four of the 12 boys trapped with their soccer coach 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.

Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said the second part of the mission to rescue the others would begin today  after authorities reconvene to assess conditions in the cave and get a briefing on how the initial rescues went.

While news of the miraculous rescue spread through the region, excitement and relief was tapered by the drama still unfolding in bowels of the Tham Luang Nang Non, where the remaining eight boys and their coach were still holed up in a dry chamber more than three kilometers from the entrance.
