Trapped Taiwanese Boys Write Heartfelt Letters To Their Parents

letters resilient

The 12 boys and their football coach who’ve spent two weeks trapped in a Thai cave have sent heartfelt notes to the surface.  The children tell their families they’re OK, while one urges his parents to remember to organise his birthday party, and another asks for fried chicken when he gets out.

One boy said to his parents, “Don’t worry, I’m fine. Please tell Yod to take me out to a fried chicken shop.” Another said: “I love you father and mother and Toy. If we can get out, please can you take me to eat at a pan-fried pork restaurant? I love you.” One boy told his parents “Don’t worry that I am missing for two weeks, I will help you at the shop soon.” The coach’s letter includes an apology.

The man in charge of rescuing 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand says they could try to get them out soon. He says weather conditions have been in their favour and water levels have been falling over the last few days. Authorities are waiting for two groups of volunteer divers to arrive over this weekend, and could then be ready to begin the operation.
