US 'working very closely' with Thailand to rescue children

US 'working very closely' with Thailand to rescue children

A source at the Chiang Rai hospital said that five emergency response doctors were awaiting the boys and a further 30 doctors were on stand-by. "If that's the case, then we have to reassess the situation", he said. Their condition was not immediately clear.

Half of the soccer team trapped inside the flooded Thai cave have now been brought out after divers executed a carefully constructed rescue mission.

"During the peak of the rainy season, we are anxious that the area where the boys are can be inundated or can be left at just 10 sq m".

Thai Navy SEALS confirmed on Facebook that the fourth boy had made it out at about 7:55 p.m. local time.

An ambulance leave the Tham Luang cave area as divers evacuated some of the 12 boys and their coach trapped at the cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in the Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai province on July 8, 2018.

Once they reach the command center, the boys will be handed over to separate specialist rescue teams, who will assist them through Chambers One and Two, according to a Thai navy official with knowledge of the rescue operation.

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".

The first of the four boys emerged from the cave entrance about nine hours after a team of 18 global cave diving experts entered the underground chamber to begin the hazardous process of accompanying the boys through the flooded, narrow tunnels to safety.

Monsoon flooding had initially cut off their escape, and rescuers were unable to find them for more than a week.

A spokesperson for the rescue operation told CNN that it would take multiple attempts to rescue all those trapped in the cave.

"He added: "They can not decide how many of them will be able to come out for the first operation".

The unit says in a message: "We, the Thai team and the global team, will bring the Wild Boars home".

An "all-star" team of 18 divers entered the caves this afternoon as the boys and their families were notified of the development. His team would camp out on the hill to try and finish its work before the rain came, he said. Gen. Chalongchai Chaiyakam said.

"Their health and their minds are ready and they have knowledge of the mission", added Narongsak. The operation began at 10 a.m. and he said it would take at least 11 hours for the first person to be rescued. The first pair may emerge at 21:00 THA (Thai Standard Time) today. A window of relatively dry conditions closed in a deluge of downpours on Saturday evening, and with more heavy rain forecast for the next few days authorities decided they could not afford to wait any longer. The boys' coach also wrote a letter.

A Thai governor says the operation to bring out 12 schoolboys and their soccer coach from deep inside a cave where they have been trapped for two weeks has begun. The Thai government released an infographic Sunday explaining that oxygen tanks would have to be removed and carefully rolled through the narrowest parts of the tunnels.

The decision to move the boys using divers has not been taken lightly. When he checked it at 7 p.m., there were at least 20 calls from anxious parents, none of whose sons had come home.

They are planning for two divers to accompany each boy back to the surface through the four kilometres of tight, muddy, water-filled passageways, some of which are less than a metre in diametre.

Rain soaked the Tham Luang Cave area in northern Chiang Rai province on Sunday and stormy weather is expected for the next two weeks, increasing the risks in what has been called a "war with water and time" to save the team.

The rescue mission was announced on what was otherwise just another gloomy, wet rainy season morning with brooding clouds spitting steady showers.
