Thai Rescue Success is a Manifestation of Global Collaboration

After a grueling and treacherous three-part operation that began on Sunday and lasted into Tuesday, the entire 12 members of the trapped youth soccer team and their 25-year-old coach were finally rescued from the Thai cave whose rising waters threatened their survival.


The mission, deemed an impressive success, was completed at about 7 pm local time and saw the collaboration of many parties including Thai Navy Seals and a variety of experts from fields ranging from communications to divers.
