| Thai cave rescue: All 12 boys and coach rescued after marathon ordeal
The final boys are taken to the helicopter on a stretcher bound for Chaing Rai hospital.
ALL 12 boys and their coach from the Wild Boars soccer team are now free from the Thai cave that has been their prison for more than two weeks, in what has been called a modern miracle.
The final boy emerged into daylight on Tuesday at around 6pm local time (9pm AEST).
Nineteen divers helped escort the final five members of the group out of Tham Luang cave, in the toughest rescue operation of the past few days.
The youngest of the group, aged just 11, was one of the last to reach the surface.
The coach left the cave after the boys, followed by a doctor and three Thai Navy SEALs who stayed with the boys overnight.
Rescue commander Narongsak Osottanakorn said it was “mission complete” in a press conference at 9.40pm (12.40am Wednesday AEST), confirming that the doctor and navy SEALs were out of the cave and in good health, to huge cheers.
This is good news but the assistant coach will have some explaining to do.

| The many prayers have been answered, I am so pleased to hear this news.
The tragic loss of Petty Officer First Class Saman Gunan was terrible, a very brave man who gave his life serving his people.

But why on earth were they in that bloody cave anyway?
