A reported 60,000 individuals from around the world participated in this summer’s Thailand cave rescue, which saw 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach freed by divers and Thai Navy SEALs from a complex network of water-filled crevices and tunnels. From Kenya, to Japan, to the U.S., hundreds of millions of us tuned into rolling coverage of the rescue, in spite of it happening at a time of turmoil around the world, with many competing news events. NBC Left Field’s Matt Danzico traveled to Thailand to explore why this particular event managed to capture the world’s attention so thoroughly.
