Thailand's cave boys to be discharged from hospital on Thursday

16 July 2018

Twelve Thai boys and their soccer coach rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand are recovering well from their ordeal. They will be discharged from hospital next week, the health minister said on Saturday (July 14). The last of the 12-member "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach were brought out of the Tham Luang cave on Tuesday (July 10) night.

The boys and their coach have been in hospital since then. All 13 were brought to safety over the course of a three-day rescue, organised by Thai navy SEALs and an international team of cave-diving experts.
