Rising waters, falling oxygen levels and no easy way out.

It’s a treacherous situation for anyone, especially 12 children and their football coach who have been trapped in a cave in Thailand.

It’s a story that has gripped the attention of much of the world.

And on Sunday, several of the trapped boys were successfully rescued and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Elite divers guided the boys through hours of walking, crawling, and swimming with an oxygen tank, out of a deep cave complex.

The teammates, along with their coach, had been trapped for more than two weeks.
