              Twelve boys and one coach; ten kilometres of tunnels; one huge rescue effort. When a team of soccer players from the Wild Boar Academy Football Club - a scrappy club of undocumented migrants and outcasts - became stranded behind rising water in a labyrinthine Thai cave system, th...ey set in train a drama that would captivate the world. Nine days later, still trapped in the dark without food, and with only water leaking through the walls to drink, their survival seemed unlikely. Yet against the odds a team of determined divers traversed floodwaters and narrow cave-ways to locate the boys - alive and hopeful. And so began one of the most daring rescues the world has seen. ABC foreign correspondent Liam Cochrane was on the ground as the dramatic events unfolded. Using his local knowledge and firsthand connections, he puts us at the centre of the story, as we witness the boys' agonising wait, the divers' battle against muddy currents, the race to pump out flooded caves, and the work of the often-quirky international experts who flew in to help. He also reveals un-reported or little-known information about the families; the background politics; the near misses and tragedies; the burn-out; the triumph; and what the future holds for a bunch of children and their coach - whose fun excursion after soccer practice turned suddenly deadly.

              The Cave: The Inside Story of the Amazing Thai Cave Rescue (EPUB ebook)

              By Cochrane, Liam

              Twelve lost boys, their coach, and the heroes who rescued them. When the 12 young members of the Wild Boars soccer club walked into a Thai cave with their coach, they expected to be out by nightfall. A birthday cake waited in the fridge for one boy, another boy had a tutoring cla...ss. They had rope and torches but no food. Then a sudden monsoonal downpour flooded their route out. They were trapped - imprisoned in a cave said to be haunted by a mythical broken-hearted princess. So began the greatest search-and-rescue mission in living memory. People from across Thailand, and soon from across the world, joined hands to find the boys and get them out. ABC foreign correspondent Liam Cochrane was on the ground as the dramatic events unfolded. Using his local knowledge, and working with a team of Thai researchers, he puts us at the centre of the story, witnessing the boys' agonising wait, the divers' battle against muddy torrents, the race to pump out flooded caves, the secret drilling plans. With unrivalled access, he reveals fresh details about the boys' time inside the cave and gives an exclusive account of the rescue from lead diver John Volanthen. Amidst the hope, there are tensions, tragedy and powerful players guiding the rescue. But most of all, this is the inspirational story of an amazing group of boys and what can be achieved when the world unites.
