The twelve boys and their football coach trapped in a Thai cave are alive. They were missing for nine days. The search for the group has been 24-hour news. No one knew if they were still alive. The boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach went missing on 23 June. They went into the cave when it was dry. There was heavy rain, which blocked the exit to the cave. The rain flooded it and trapped the boys and their coach.
The bad news is the team could be trapped for four months. Rescuers have to wait for the water to go down. The boys could learn to dive, but none of them can swim. Rescuers say they will take food and medicine to the boys. They are trying to put power and telephones in the cave. Two rescuers said the boys were happy, but very hungry. A mother of one of the boys saw a video of them and said: "I'm so happy I can't put it into words."
