Thirteen is a lucky number

All 12 young footballers and their assistant coach, who were trapped inside Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai for over two weeks, have been successfully and safely evacuated from the cave on day 3 of the mammoth rescue operation.

According to the Thai Navy Seal’s Facebook page, the four divers, who accompanied the last members to be rescued from deep in the flooded complex where they took shelter, will also soon leave the cave.

The final Mu Pa members to be freed from their ordeal join three other team members who were extracted from the cave earlier today.

“We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what. All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave.” Thai Navy Seals.

The post on the Seals’ Facebook page ended with “Hooyah”, their victory catch-phrase.
