Thai boys trapped in cave meet divers at event recounting ordeal
The boys, members of a youth soccer team called the Wild Boars, and their coach spent nearly three weeks underground before an international team of divers and cave experts rescued them from the cave in July.
They were also reintroduced to many divers for the first time since they were all inside the cave.
The event, called "Tham Luang Incredible Mission: the Global Agenda," featured a fake small cave tunnel that the boys briefly walked through, surrounded by cameras.
