The shocking ordeal has finally come to an end. 

After over two weeks trapped in a complex cave system, it has been reported that all 12 of the young boys from the Wild Boars soccer team and their 25-year-old coach have finally been evacuated.

As news.com.au shares, the final five (four young boys and their coach) were assisted out of the cave by nineteen divers.

As predicted, the coach surfaced after the final boy was freed at about 6pm local time.

They were transported to a hospital in Thailand's Chiang Rai province where they are being assessed. According to reports, the boys are in remarkably good health considering the ordeal they have just endured. 

However, they will remain in quarantine for some time yet while they are tested for infection.
