Great news!
Letting the days go by / water flowing underground
Into the blue again / in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones / there is water underground.

Me and my four year old are headed there this Sunday. The batteries are on the charger, his Lightning McQueen helmet is ready, and we're both excited to be going back.

Does anybody know any real details of this rescue? Not familiar with the cave at all, but the news descriptions are more confusing than helpful. (Which is typical for a cave rescue in the news.) Apparently it's a tight spot they were stuck in, but apparently the rescuers could get to his face and chisel around him? I'm very confused.

Here is one news story, of the 3-4 I've read, none were overly helpful.
