Narrator Vikas Adam recounts a real-life drama that took place in Thailand in 2018. Twelve members of the Wild Boars soccer team and their coach go cave exploring in the Tham Luang cave complex and find themselves trapped when rains flood the passages behind them. Adam conveys the increasing unlikelihood of rescue as days pass before Thai Navy SEALS and an international contingent of experts find the boys and then must come up with a way to bring them out without accidentally drowning them. The complexity of the extractions cannot be overstated, and Adam ably expresses both the tragedy and triumph of the event. Supplemental material--which includes background details, suggestions for further reading, and information about Thailand--offers listeners more on this fascinating story.
