Thai cave rescue route

Thai cave rescue route

But rescue teams don't have an abundance of time.

The rescue mission has faced a ideal storm of obstacles since it began, including monsoonal rains, a lack of oxygen in the cave and the fact that numerous boys trapped inside don't know how to swim let alone dive.

"We hope to hear good news soon", Osotthanakorn said.

"But the fact that it took so many hours underscores how precarious this whole mission is".

Divers have been guiding the boys through darkness and submerged passageways towards the mouth of the Tham Luang cave system.

While the governor would not confirm the identities of the four boys, he said the first one emerged at 5:40 p.m., followed by the second boy 10 minutes later. Two others were brought out about two hours later.

Officials have said storms forecast for Chiang Rai province in Thailand's far north had factored into their decision to go ahead with a complicated and unsafe plan for the boys aged between 11 and 16 and their coach to dive out of the cave. Monsoon flooding cut off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days. Rescuers have been unable to extend a hose pumping oxygen all the way to where the boys are, but have brought them some oxygen tanks. Thailand's Meteorological Department said there was a 60 percent chance of rain Monday with thunderstorms forecast throughout the week, the Associated Press reported.

Four of the boys were rescued today, and authorities are now working to replenish air tanks along the cave's treacherous exit route.

Pixley said rescues underneath ice would be the most similar to a cave-diving experience.

Ambulances at the hospital are on standby to receive the next batch of boys who are expected to be plucked from the cave. One option to get them out of the cave is to teach them to dive and swim out of the cave.

Prayuth also declined to answer questions about health of the four boys rescued yesterday.

Narongsak said Monday's rescues involving 18 divers and a support team of 100 had taken nine hours, two fewer than the rescues on Sunday. I can not order them around.

"It's unsafe to the most experienced divers to go through", one diver told Reuters.

Nuttachoong Pimtong, a 14-year-old friend of Adul Sam-on, said he was watching a Thai television network on Monday with his family when he saw the first footage of the boys being taken away from the cave site in ambulances. On Friday, a former Thai Navy SEAL died while returning from an operation to deliver oxygen tanks to the cave.

"It is important to appreciate that the United Kingdom cave divers continue to work alongside the Thai Navy SEAL divers and a combination of cave divers and open water divers from many other nations", the statement said.

"Definitely, you can feel it that it has an effect, but we're moving on".

Dr Harris is thought to have gone into the cave on Saturday, spending 24 hours assessing the boys' physical and mental fitness to decide who should leave first.

An eighth both has left the cave Monday and been sent to a medical facility on site according to an eyewitness who is part of the rescue operations stationed at the entrance of the cave. In a letter of his own, the coach, Ekapol Chanthawong, apologized to the boys' parents for the ordeal. I've told Yod to get ready to take me out for fried chicken.

"Even when my friends have left the cave, I'm anxious about their physical well-being".

Narongsak earlier cited favorable factors for successful rescue, including the fact that water levels in the cave remain stable amid the current break in the weather, even as the monsoon season looms.

How Are They Getting Out?

"To the parents of all the kids, right now the kids are all fine, the crew are taking good care".

"I think anytime you enter cold water, into an environment that you can't see, and you have a complex maneuver to achieve, it's probably the hardest thing that a diver will face", he said.

"As a cousin and as a representative of all 13 families, I can not find words to explain our feelings and how glad and grateful we are", said Promjak.

Earlier reports said three had already reached Chamber 3, the main base for divers inside the camp.

Now that the first of the boys have been taken to a nearby hospital, doctors there will begin evaluating the impact to their long-term health. "We will have to do the next mission as successfully as the one we did today".

"Obviously we need to be careful not to be overconfident", he said.
