Cave boys back home

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - WORLD -

THAILAND’S res­cued cave boys woke up in their own homes for the first time in more than three weeks yes­ter­day, with many ris­ing at dawn to take part in a re­li­gious cer­e­mony.

The 12 boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach were dis­charged from a hospi­tal in Chi­ang Rai on Wed­nes­day and later made their first pub­lic ap­pear­ance.

Dur­ing a na­tional TV broad­cast they smiled, joked and showed sol­i­dar­ity with one an­other, as they shared de­tails of their trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ence.
