Thai cave rescue: boys safe but no way out of cave


A harmful mission to rescue a soccer crew miraculously discovered alive in an air pocket inside a flooded Thai cave is beneath ­consideration, in a bid to avoid wasting the younger boys earlier than monsoonal rains forecast to begin this ­weekend.

Elation yesterday swept the households of the boys after their discovery by British divers on Monday night time, 10 days after the crew was trapped by rising waters ­contained in the Tham Luang cave complicated in northern Thailand.

The main target has now shifted to the troublesome query of how you can get them out or to maintain them alive contained in the cave for as much as 4 months till waters recede.

The 12 boys, aged between 11 and 16 and who can’t swim, had been found with their 25-year-old coach late on Monday, huddled on a muddy, sloping ledge deep ­contained in the pitch-black cave. They could be taught how you can scuba dive to aim a harmful escape forward of extra rain .

The crew is 800m-1km underground — too far for drilling gear to achieve them — and 2km from the doorway. There are quite a few slender passages stuffed with dashing water between them and a method out.
