Thai cave rescue: Four youths saved as rescue efforts continue

Thai cave rescue: Four youths saved as rescue efforts continue

The condition of one of the first two footballers rescued from the Tham Luang Cave in Chiang Rai yesterday is causing some concern.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn on Sunday said four of the team - affectionately dubbed by Thai social media Wild Boars 1,2,3,4 - were "safe" but released few details about their condition or identities. A defence ministry official earlier told AFP six boys had "come out".

There's been no shortage of warnings in recent days about how risky the rescue attempt is - not least the death of former Thai Navy Sgt. Saman Kunan, an ex-SEAL, who died early Friday morning due to a lack of air while attempting to return to a command center deep underground.

Last month, twelve members of the Wild Boars soccer team-and their 25-year-old coach-became trapped in the flooded cave when they went exploring after soccer practice.

"It's highly unsafe, it's very precarious and our thoughts are not only with the boys but also with the diving and rescue teams that are assisting", Bishop told the Nine network on Monday.

Officials had looked at many different ways to save the boys and their coach.

Narongsak said Sunday morning two divers would escort each of the boys out of the cave.

The 9.1 trillion 2018 budget was predicated on a benchmark price of $51 per barrel and production of 2.3 million barrels per day. China, India, Japan, and South Korea are the top customers of Iranian crude.

Rescuing them all could take three to four days and depended on the weather, an army commander involved in the mission said.

Initially, an underwater escape was considered a last resort because none of the children were trained to dive and many of them were poor swimmers.

Family members pray near a cave where 12 boys and their soccer coach have been trapped since June 23, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, in northern Thailand on Saturday. The boys have been trapped for more than two weeks in the cavern, as waters have been rising from the monsoon rains.

"If, as we all hope, they are reunited with their families in the coming days and their health allows them to travel, Federation Internationale de Football Association would be delighted to invite them to attend the 2018 World Cup final in Moscow as our guests". He found kindred spirits in the boys, many of whom had grown up poor or were stateless ethnic minorities, common in this border area between Myanmar and Thailand. We will have to do the next mission as successfully as the one we did today.

Rescuers part of the Thai navy SEAL partaking in the operation posted on Facebook showing hands locked with a caption vowing to bring the boys home.

Billionaire tech developer Elon Musk had also offered to provide assistance, in the form of a "kid-size submarine", which could arrive in Thailand early Monday, local time.

Meanwhile rescuers fed a kilometres-long air pipe into the cave to restore oxygen levels in the chamber where the team was sheltering with medics and divers. It was not immediately known if a US diver was among them. One of the boys, identified as Tun, wrote: "Mom and Dad, please don't worry, I am fine". With love." "Don't be anxious, I miss everyone.
