"We did something nobody thought possible," the leader of the Thai cave rescue mission declared today after the last trapped boys and their coach were finally freed, ending their 17-day ordeal. The dangerous, highly complex operation was launched after the group became stranded deep inside the flooded cave. They'll now be in hospital for at least a week, and they're being quarantined for fear of infection. Their families have only been able to see them through a glass window.
