Yes, fantastic.
Just want to hear that the remaining rescuers are safely out, too. All so brave.

Teetime Tue 10-Jul-18 13:36:09

Wonderful news- I expect the Hollywood producers are on their way.

Squiffy Tue 10-Jul-18 13:37:49

What a fantastic achievement. Such brave people involved. Let’s hope everyone else comes out safely, too.

Greyduster Tue 10-Jul-18 13:42:29

What a wonderful undertaking and congratulations to all involved. Fingers crossed for the rest of the team.

Wonderful news. Such bravery and skill from all those involved in this miraculous rescue. It would be my worst nightmare to be trapped like that.

Bathsheba Tue 10-Jul-18 13:46:16

Oh it is such wonderful news, isn't it? Yes Teetime, that is exactly what I just said to my DH!

DanniRae Tue 10-Jul-18 13:47:18

So pleased to read this wonderful news - lots of prayers have been answered.

That's what we said, Bathsheba and Teetime. Stephen Spielberg is probably already negotiating the film rights.

And if Hollywood gets there I hope the boys and their community benefit. Not to forget the brave diver who didn’t make it and his family.

Doodle Tue 10-Jul-18 13:55:31

Yes really sad about the diver who died but wonderful news all the others are out. Just hope the Doctor and remaining SEALS get out safely.

nanaK54 Tue 10-Jul-18 13:59:18

Just the most wonderful news!

Cherrytree59 Tue 10-Jul-18 14:02:17

I am so pleased
Heard it on the car radio and shouted out
Thank God!sunshine

Panache Tue 10-Jul-18 14:09:53

What a relief..........and what an amazing feat with much bravery and hard work to the to get every one else involved back safely.

So sad for the death of the one rescuer,a hero though nevertheless.

gmelon Tue 10-Jul-18 14:12:48

Oh thank goodness.
I honestly thought there would be another day of operations to get the coach and the medic etc out.

ninathenana Tue 10-Jul-18 14:16:37

Fantastic news.
As Mapleleaf says hope to hear that all involed are safely out soon.

What an amazing feat and what wonderful international co-operation and how all the local people worked together cross community barriers (Buddhist/Muslim) to sustain and support the rescuers and the families

What a wonderful world it would be if we could act like this when there wasn't a emergency.

Tweedle24 Tue 10-Jul-18 14:27:16

Hope they are protected from the media.

sodapop Tue 10-Jul-18 17:53:26

Absolutely brilliant news, so pleased for the boys and their families. I agree with MOnica
about the rescue operation.

Luckygirl Tue 10-Jul-18 18:46:06

Such good news.

But I really feel very sad about the diver who died - I am so puzzled that a professional diver would have run out of air in his tank, when people have been diving in and out for a long time with no problem. How very sad indeed.

M0nica Tue 10-Jul-18 19:06:09

How much air you use when diving varies from person to person. It may be that he took longer than expected on part of the dive or used up more air at a particular difficult place, or took a risk on his air tank holding out in an effort to leave as many cylinders on the route for the rescue attempt.

A truly amazing outcome, and a superb effort by everyone involved. The parents must be so thankful. The Thai diver who lost his life will be remembered as a hero who gave his life to help others. I see the Wild Boars (the team of lads) have been invited to visited Manchester United when they have recovered. The head coach looked thrilled!

Juggernaut Tue 10-Jul-18 19:27:51

Wonderful news!
I feel as if I've been holding my breath ever since the news broke of them having disappeared into the cave.
It's such a shame that Saman Kunan lost his life during the rescue, but thirteen young lives saved is a fitting memorial to his bravery.
It just proves what can be achieved when nations/faiths work together.
