The world had kept an eye on the team’s rescue operation. After 9 days, Thailand authorities initiated a group of 13 rescuers combining both foreign and Thailand personnel to save 12 boys and their coach from the flooded cave. After being saved from the cave, the boys and their coach were admitted to a hospital for treatment, since they were stuck in the cave without food and other basic necessities.

In an attempt to save 12 boys and their coach, Elon Musk, had sent out a small sized submarine, which could be used by the rescuers to save the boys and their coach. However, his submarine was not used by the rescuers. It was after 3-day long rescue operation when all the 12 boys and their coach was evacuated from the cave.
