After an intense 10-day search, 12 missing boys and their soccer coach have been found alive on 3 July.

The group got trapped in a cave system when they were caught unexpectedly by monsoon rains.

The boys - aged between 11 and 16 - and their 25-year-old coach were exploring the Tham Luang cave complex in a forest park on the 23rd of June.

The tired and hungry group was found by divers about 4 km from the mouth of the flooded cave.

Despite being exhausted and in need of warm food and a warm bath, it is reported by EWN that none of the survivors are seriously injured.

The focus is now on getting the group out of the caves as soon as possible. The rescue teams have started teaching the boys to use breathing masks. The plan is to teach the boys how to dive.

The main idea is to drain water from the cave so the survivors can climb out, but there will be areas filled with water through which they will have to dive and swim.
