Inside the Thai Cave: How Rescuers
Are Trying to Save a Soccer Team

The rescuers face an increasingly dire situation. The boys have grown weak from falling oxygen levels in the chamber where they are trapped. One rescue diver died Friday when he ran out of air while underwater.

The cave system runs under a mountain range, which has mostly eliminated drilling as an option for rescuing the boys. Getting the necessary drilling equipment up the mountain would be daunting and time-consuming

Wearing breathing masks, each member of the team will be led by two to three divers.

A guide rope and spare oxygen tanks have been placed along the route.



Thailand cave rescue: mission ready to go



Now and in the next three or four days, the conditions are perfect (for evacuation) in terms of the water, the weather and the boys’ health,” rescue operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said. LIVE FEED LINK:

Please don't be a complete idiot posting shit in this thread
They might die during the process of exiting but I think not because some window of opportunity has closed rather because what they are about to embark upon is extremely dangerous.

Its my understanding the two British divers that eventually reached the boys took 5 hours to transit from the cave entrance to the boys location.
Its gunner be a long long way back out. Think i heard one stretch the boys with have to swim underwater nearly one kilometer.

There are lots and lots of trained divers along the way ready to assist, each boy will have three four divers accompanying each of them.

Thailand cave rescue: Rescuers have 'three to four day window' to free stranded boys

A heavy rain shower hit northern Thailand overnight, worsening conditions at the cave where rescuers were waging a "war with water and time" to save 12 trapped boys and their soccer coach, with a rescue possible within days.

The rain could potentially set back progress made over the last week to drain the Tham Luang cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai.



Why doesn't the Thai soccer team dive out of the cave? It's a dangerous option, but could be their only hope

Updated Thu at 9:50am

"We are fairly sure that the boys are around 2km into the cave system, of which almost a kilometre of that is through flooded passages … where the water meets the roof," he said.

Mr Mitchell said the trip to get out of the cave takes about three hours for experienced divers.

"(It involves) multiple stops, changes of air tanks etc. It's a slow process," he said.

I really hope they can rescue all these boys...initially they thought they would be safe for a long period of time until the oxygen started to dwindle....drilling would be dangerous because there would be a chance of collapse on the boys and also blocking up diving routes....they don't have any option I don't think other than to bring them out by diving which is dangerous even for experienced divers sooooo they really have no other option and the weather is not cooperating very well.....wave

Medicine and food are now being transported to the scene, and a backup plan would have the boys waiting it out in the cave until October or November. A four month supply of provisions and medicine has already been assembled should it come to that.

The boys will not be expected to carry their own oxygen tanks, instead relying on tanks carried by their rescuer.



Expert divers require around six hours to reach the boys, and around five hours to get back to the entrance. There are several air pockets along the route, but there’s virtually no visibility, the water is rushing in some places, and some regions are so narrow that scuba gear has to be removed from the divers’ backs so they can squeeze through.

Divers working to free 12 boys and their coach who are trapped in a cave in northern Thailand must navigate dark, flooded tunnels for six hours to reach them. It takes another five hours to return

Plans to drill into the rock to create new shafts have been abandoned. Instead, around 20 to 30 teams are currently scouring the mountainside in search of alternative natural entrances, called chimneys, into the cave complex. They’ve also enlisted bird-watchers, who may be able to spot birds entering or exiting hidden holes

Thailand cave rescue: Ambulances arrive and media blocked from entering site

Ambulances have arrived at the Thailand cave site where rescue teams have been making preparations to save 12 trapped boys and their soccer coach amid reports the rescue could be underway — or at least imminent.



A row of ambulances seen heading to the site on Sunday morning sparked reports a rescue mission was under way. Thai divers have also arrived while journalists on the scene report that “the trend toward an imminent rescue attempt continues”.

CNN’s Matt Rivers said the forecast for monsoonal rains meant there might be no alternative but to try and get the boys out now. The situation has become more urgent over the last 24 hours due to oxygen levels dropping inside the cave. While rain has held off within the area, forecasts are calling for more to fall.

Our south Asia correspondent Michael Safi has learned that divers are at the site and the rescue operation will begin soon, but it hasn’t commenced yet and divers are yet to go into the caves.

The press conference is due to start in about five minutes, we will let you know when that has begun and as soon as we have any news from it.

There is speculation that the order for journalists and non-essential personnel to leave the site came as officials became increasingly irritated by the growing media presence at the site. Hundreds of reporters have arrived at the cave site over the last week.

The press conference, which was due to start half an hour ago, has not yet begun. We’ll have updates from that as soon as it does

A Bangkok Post reporter has said on Twitter that the first stage of the operation will be to recover four boys.

“Sending support and prayers to the Seal unit and the first four kids to come out safe,” Wassan Nanuam wrote on Twitter.

The Guardian has not been able to confirm this and officials have not confirmed details of the operation.

Some bad news from the #ThamLuang rescue site. A vehicle carrying rescue workers has crashed, badly injuring one person. In addition it has just started to rain heavily. Which is very bad news for the trapped boys #Thailand

this latest update, probably be at least quite long wait before any of the boys appear:

37s ago 23:35

The governor said that the factors affecting the readiness for any rescue attempt are the weather, the water, and the readiness of the team the condition of the boys.

“Today is the peak of our readiness,” said Narongsak.

It is possible for divers to advance to the third chamber on foot. It’s not dry but it’s the lowest the water level has been, said the governor.

Rescue mission is underway, governor confirms

The rescue mission has begun, the governor has confirmed at a press conference this morning.

18 divers have been sent into the caves to retrieve the 12 boys and their football coach. The 13 people inside the cave have been informed and are ready and their families have been informed.

Medical teams have been rehearsing for three days and are ready to treat the group when they emerge.

The governor said the earliest the boys will come out is 9pm tonight, due to the long journey from where they are located and the entrance and they cannot guarantee the mission will be completed today, because the boys will all come out gradually.

We understand that the Australian doctor who gave the boys the final approval for the operation is a civilian who has extensive cave-diving experience and was specifically requested by British divers involved in the operation.

He is now part of the rescue mission – though we are unclear if he is one of the 18 divers inside. Authorities say they are not approved to release his name and can’t ask his permission because he’s currently involved in the mission.

Divers expected to be preparing the first boy for the journey out

It has been five hours since the team of divers went in to the cave complex and they are now expected to be “preparing the first and strongest of the team for the perilous underwater extraction”.
