Boys rescued from Thai cave are celebrated in Bangkok



It was show time Thursday for the 12 boys and their 25-year-old soccer coach who were trapped for almost three weeks in a flooded cave in northern Thailand as they spoke at a public exhibition in one of Bangkok’s largest malls.

That was just the start of the day for the small-town kids in the big-city capital. Later they were guests of honor at a gala outdoor reception hosted by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and his wife that honored those involved in the dangerous and dramatic rescue of the members of the Wild Boars soccer team.

The exhibition, where the boys spoke to the public and reporters, features a reproduction of the cave with simulated sounds of water dripping. Equipment used by rescuers and other items are on display.

On Friday the boys are scheduled to tour Bangkok’s Grand Palace, a major destination for Thai and foreign tourists.

    I’m happy that they were rescued and that they are all safe and sound, but a man lost his life because of their youthful foolishness and their coach’s poor decision, personally I don’t think that they should be rewarded with trips and celebrity status. they should be grateful and any monies spent for this kind of stuff should be used for their rescuers or some noble cause.
