Three weeks in the dark
Twelve members of the Wild Boars youth soccer team and their coach entered the sprawling Tham Luang cave network on June 23, only to be trapped by rising flood waters. The boys were found in early July, but jubilation quickly gave way to the realization that their rescue would be extremely risky and dangerous.
The world watched as a team of international cave diving experts led the mission to retrieve them, evacuating the boys one-by-one. The last of the group, the coach, successfully exited the cave on July 10.
