As reported by CNN.com this morning, all twelve children and their soccer coach have been rescued from the cave system in Thailand where they'd been trapped for nearly three weeks.
The rescue effort, which has gotten international attention, has been rushed by rising flood waters that made the rescue attempt trickier and more dangerous. Each boy had to be escorted by a pair of divers through a two and a half mile long tunnel, sections of which were underwater, and they had to thread through a part of the tunnel that was only a a couple of feet wide.
The boys are currently in the hospital being evaluated. Some have requested bread with chocolate spread on it, but they're otherwise on high nutrient foods. Medical officials told reporters Tuesday that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and "seem to be in high spirits." Despite that, two are believed to be suffering lung inflammation. They will be evaluated for further inflammations, including Histoplasmosis, which is known as "cave disease", which is a type of fungus found in bat droppings.
We'll report on the story further as it develops.
