There is good news about twelve boys and their football coach who are trapped in Thai cave. They are alive and well. group was missing for nine days, but was found by rescuers yesterday. Thailand has been praying for them to be found since they went missing on June 23. search for group was 24-hour news in Thailand. It was unclear where they were or whether or not they were still alive. boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach went missing. They went into cave in northern Thailand when it was dry, but there was suddenly heavy rain. This blocked the exit to cave. The rain flooded it and boys and their coach were trapped.

bad news is that soccer team could be trapped in cave for months. Rescuers have to wait until water recedes (goes down) before team can get out. Another possibility is for boys to learn to dive. If they do that, they can get out sooner. However, none of boys can swim. Rescuers say they may have to take food, medicine and supplies to boys for the next four months. They are currently trying to put power and telephone lines in cave. Two British rescue divers who found boys said they were all happy, but very, very hungry. The rescuers took video of them. A mother of one of boys described her happiness. She said: "I'm so happy I can't put it into words."
