The desperate search for Thailand's lost boys

On 23 June, 12 boys and their coach went to explore a cave after football practice in northern Thailand. Nine days later, all 13 have been found alive.

Shortly after the group’s bikes were found abandoned at the entrance last month, heavy rain sent torrents of water through the cave.

Rescuers hoped that the boys aged 11 to 16 and their coach were alive deep inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave. They hoped the group could find safety on a mound in an underground chamber, after being trapped by flood waters.
