Reports Say First Two Boys Brought Out of Cave

Reports Say First Two Boys Brought Out of Cave

Thai navy SEALs say four soccer team members have been taken out of the cave.

Last week, as hopes for rescue were fading, divers found that the boys and their coach had survived and were trapped on a ledge deep inside the cave.

Addressing media earlier today, Chaing Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said that all those trapped in the cave are now aware of efforts to rescue them and "they're ready to go out". According to the Guardian, the rescue has concluded for the night and will resume in about 10 to 20 hours.

The operation, which started on Sunday morning, will take two to three days to complete, as each round trip from the rescue camp in the cave to the site where the boys and their coach are located takes 11 hours. "Today is D-Day", he said. The acting Chiang Rai governor had said rescuers couldn't wait for ideal weather conditions because of several factors.

A residential area in Okayama prefecture, on the main island of Honshu , was covered in brown water spreading like a huge lake. Two sisters from an elementary school of just six pupils on the small island of Nuwa in Ehime prefecture were among the dead.

The boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach became stranded when they went exploring in the cave after a practice game June 23. "We can not wait any longer". "If that's the case, then we have to reassess the situation", he said.

Thailand cave rescue latest updates: On Sunday, a Thailand army commander said the ongoing rescue of 12 boys and their coach could take 2-4 days depending on conditions inside the partially flooded cave. Divers had entered the cave nine hours earlier to begin the rescue efforts.

Retrieving the boys from the muddy bank on which they took refuge requires a almost 11-hour round trip through 4 km of winding, submerged pathways, tunnels and fast-flowing, freezing water.

It was unclear who was inside the ambulances or the helicopter.

Officials worked to supply the 12 boys and their coach with oxygen through a 3 mile (5 kilometer) cable running through the cave's winding chambers on Friday.

The area outside the hospital was cordoned off with police patrolling the area. Down the street, vendors were told by loud speaker to "keep off the road" and to "not obstruct the transfer mission". Powerwalls, the spokesman said.

Rain on Saturday evening and throughout Sunday was thought to be the catalyst for starting the rescue operation but appears not to have halted or significantly slowed its progress.

The soccer team's ordeal has drawn huge media attention in Thailand and overseas, as monsoon conditions worsened amid a frantic search to find the trapped youngsters.
