Thailand cave rescue: 13 found alive after 9 days

Thailand cave rescue: 13 found alive after 9 days

White said cave temperatures, as a rule of thumb, are usually around the average annual temperature for the area they're located in - which, in the area near the cave, would generally be between 60 and 80 degrees, according to online weather websites. We have to wait for the water level to decline.

"There could be still some more days left in this rescue operation, trying to get the boys out", he said.

"Brilliant!" As the boys are thanking their finders, the divers had to upset them, revealing that their ordeal is not yet over. Efforts to rescue the 13 have captivated Thailand.

The astonishing rescue sparked jubilation across the country after the country mounted a massive and gruelling operation beset by heavy downpours and fast-moving floodwaters.

A Thai provincial governor says all 12 boys and their coach have been found alive in the cave where they went missing over a week ago in northern Thailand.

"We will bring food to them and a doctor who can dive".

A rescue team that included Thai Navy SEALs entered a narrow passageway early on Monday after passing through a flooded chamber on Sunday that was previously blocking their progress.

A video obtained by CNN shows the group barefoot and huddled together inside the dark cave. We're coming. It's okay. They are members of the Moo Pa football team and are known to frequently venture out on day trips to the caves. And posted: "I'm waiting to hear the words "the search has come to an end, all 13 lives are safe".

"Monday. One week and Monday", one of those behind the camera says. "10 days. You are very strong".

Governor Narongsak said a navy SEAL team will make the final call on the evacuation method. "We will give you more lights".

"If the children are to be brought out before then, they will have to learn basic diving skills to safely get through the risky corridors of muddy, zero-visibility waters as attempts to pump the water levels lower have so far not been successful", an Army official told BBC. "I am not sure they can eat as they have not eaten for a while".

Rescuers had been working on Monday to clear a constricted passageway for divers deep inside the flooded complex in a search operation that has been hampered by heavy rain.

It was fortunate end of a desperate search that drew global help and captivated the nation.

A father of a missing footballer thanks soldiers near Tham Luang cave following news all members of the children's football team and their coach were alive in the cave.

Aisha Wiboonrungrueng, the mother of 11-year-old Chanin Wiboonrungrueng, smiled and hugged her family as news of their discovery spread.

Mr Sorenson agrees. "I think they would be better off bringing in food, water, filtration systems, oxygen if the air space needs it and requires it", he says.

Rescue forces are sending food supplies that could last for over four months into the partially flooded cave in northern Thailand. "They will be taken out of the cave, when it is safe enough".

The challenge now will be to extract the party safely, with rising water and mud impeding access.

One option is to bring them out by diving it is the quickest but it's also the most risky.

Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha thanked the tremendous efforts of all worldwide units that have come to assist.

Mr Narongsak had said earlier the passageway goes upward in some places and downward in others and is very narrow, making it hard for divers and their gear to fit through. The divers had to travel kilometres through narrow and twisting caves to reach the boys. The divers are now in the most critical section of their miles-long journey through the underground cave network.

Divers had to pull themselves along with rope against powerful currents in the cave's water. Other efforts have focused on finding shafts on the mountainside that might serve as a back door to the blocked-off areas where the missing may be sheltering. On the afternoon of June 23, after soccer practice, Ekkapol led his team on what was meant to be a short trek into Tham Luang cave, a system of tunnels winding up and down beneath a mountain near the border with Myanmar. Several have been found and explorers have been able to descend into some.

But one cave rescue expert was cautious about this approach.
