Missing Thai Boys Found Alive In Cave, Governor Says

Share

Sky News' Lisa Holland, who is at the scene, said: "We have been told by a teacher at a school where half of the boys go to (that) the boys have been found and that they are alive but they are very weak".

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

All 12 boys and their football team coach have been found alive after becoming trapped in a flooded cave for more than a week in Thailand.

Family members of the missing hugged each other as they cheered the news. They clearly want to stabilize the boys before they try and bring them out.

The Seals' Facebook page said that since Sunday night, the divers had reached a bend where the kilometre-long passage splits in two directions.

"If you ask me now while we are still assessing all sides then I don't think they will be home soon", Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters.

US seeks 'in vain' to divide Iranians
Gingrich, Giuliani and other United States politicians have been well paid to speak at the annual Paris rally in recent years. However, the protests earlier this year took place largely in Iran's provinces rather than in Tehran.

Here's how the gruelling nine-day search unfolded in Tham Luang Nang Non cave, a 10km-long system filled with fast-flowing muddy floodwaters.

What began as a small team of local responders looking for some lost boys snowballed by midweek into a multinational emergency response.

Rescuers said they believed the boys could stay alive by drinking fresh water in the cave, either dripping in through rocks or rushing in through the entrance.

Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said late Monday that the 13 were being rescued.

The Moo Pa Academy team's belongings, including bicycles, backpacks and football cleats, were found just outside the entrance of the flooded cave complex in Chiang Rai's Mae Sai district, where they had gone for a sightseeing trip.

Portugal's route to the knockout stages was less straightforward and they had to survive a late scare against Iran to progress. The team is in great form and will have a tough competition against Portugal , which also happens to be in a great form.

More than 1,000 rescuers from several countries - including the USA and China - also joined the search team.

Narongsak said rescue workers would now focus on the "rescue" phase and then a handover to medical teams waiting outside the cave.

No contact had been made from the trapped Wild Boar soccer team boys in 10 days.

Although experts didn't know at press time what kind of food - if any - the boys had with them, White said it was possible they could have been rationing provisions that they brought in with them: "But that's speculation".

The nurse and doctor are reportedly dive certified, and will swim up to meet the trapped soccer team alongside the Royal Thai SEALs. While some attempt to pump water out of the caves, divert nearby ground water or find an alternate opening that can give them access to the team. Crews of geologists working outside the cave have been drilling into the grottos to create potential escape shafts closer to the area where rescuers had hoped to find the wayward party.

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha thanked the worldwide teams and rescuers who helped find the group. Rescuers explore several options, including training them to use scuba equipment. "So I'd say, yeah, it's an accurate statement that it's challenging".
