  • Four boys were rescued from a cave in Thailand on Sunday, the first wave of a highly anticipated mission to save the soccer team.
  • The boys had to learn the basics of swimming and diving before they could start the 2.5 mile journey.
  • Two divers accompanied each boy throughout the narrow cave passageways, guided by a rope.

The first four boys who were trapped in the cave in Thailand have been rescued and are in “perfect” health.

The boys had to travel about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) with oxygen tanks, tethered to cave divers to exit. About 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) of the journey was underwater, where everyone had to wear full face masks.
