In Photos: Celebrating the Cave Rescue Success

Volunteers, students and onlookers show their jubilation after the extraction of 12 boys and their football coach, who spent more than two weeks trapped in a cave in northern Thailand. The operation came not a moment too soon: water pumps failed shortly after the last boy came out. Rescue workers stationed at ‘chamber three’, a base inside the cave, said they heard screaming and saw a rush of head torches from deeper inside the tunnel as workers scrambled to reach dry ground.
