Two years ago, rescue divers found 12 missing boys and their soccer coach 10 days after they went missing in a cave in northern Thailand. As rain flooded parts of the cave, Thai rescuers raced against time to pump out water so they could extract the boys and their coach. More than a week after being found, on July 10, 2018, the boys were successfully rescued from the cave.
