By Townhall. Good news out of Thailand this Tuesday morning—all 12 members of a soccer team and their coach have been rescued from a flooded cave where they were trapped for more than two weeks. . .
“People don’t understand how much gear these guys have,” Jake Zweig told “Fox & Friends.” “They’re not just swimming the whole time. They’re climbing rocks, they’re getting out and walking…There’s a whole lot of stages to this mission just like climbing Mount Everest.” . . .

Several Thai navy divers took part in the rescue. One ex-navy diver, Saman Gunan, died in the cave last Friday.
Little information has been released about exactly who was involved and how, largely because most participants have been reluctant to talk.
It is thought that dozens of divers – Thai and foreign – were part of the efforts. (Read more from “Cave Rescue: The Divers Who Got the Thai Boys out” HERE)
