Thailand rescue:

Ending a three-day long complex evacuation process, rescuers successfully brought out all the 12 boys and their football coach who were trapped in a flooded Thailand cave for the past two weeks, officials said.

The rescue operation commenced on Sunday after reports emerged few days ago that the missing boys and their coach were found alive inside the cave.

Rescuers pulled out the trapped people one after another since Sunday and the mission was completed on Tuesday when the final person was evacuated from the cave.

"12 wild pigs and coaches out of the cave. Safe everyone. This time, waiting to pick up 4 Frogs," posted the Thai Navy Seal on their Facebook page.
