Truly wonderful news, but so far only 4 rescued.

This is extremely scary and heartwarming all at the same time. I can't imagine. When all hope was lost, they were found. Now I hope they can all make it out alive.

'Inspirational' scripted film about Thai cave rescue planned by faith-based studio
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter from the scene in Thailand shortly after an extensive, multi-day mission to extract the Wild Boars youth soccer team and their adult coach ended Tuesday, Michael Scott — CEO and co-founder of the faith-based studio Pure Flix Entertainment — revealed that the production outfit will build a scripted feature around the story.
Well, that didn't take long.

Maybe it was "fake news" but I read recently that the assistant coach is going to face a firing squad over this incident.

He guided the youths to high ground in the cave darkness and kept them alive until rescue arrived.

Let's hope this really is fake news.
