    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    I was reading this morning that they have been dropping of survival packs into the water aswell as down any crevices that might lead into the cave, hoping the boys might be able to see them. I know its a long shot, imagine how dark it would be, I would expect any torches or phones they had with them would be flat by now.


    Missing 7 x days today.

    Aust. Gov. has agreed/offered to send a specialist team as well, just had it on the News here.

    I don't know how they can still be alive.

    I guess at least they haven't found any bodies floating out with the tide....so maybe a slim chance.

    55 sorry I know it's a sad thread, but that make me chuckle.
    Worry is a misuse of the imagination.

    WOW! What fantastic news! Congratulations to the rescue team. Considering the conditions, they should not have gone there in the first place, but who hasn't made poor choices at some time when we were young.

    It is an adventure that they will never forget. And, because of it there might now be some regulations about visiting those caves. In many caves I've explored there were many regulations, including not taking photographs.

    Maybe, but first they will be hungry! A lot!

    No rice in the belly for 10 days, that is surely PTSD for Thai.. 55

    Seriously, after 10 days they cannot eat now, no matter how hungry they are..
    Will be taken to hospital, get a drip with some glucose and will be monitored how their bodies respond..
    If ok, can drink some water with sugar..
    Fat and proteins will take a day or 2 to be allowed..

    Multi organ failure is still a big risk for a few days..

    MAE SAI, Thailand (AP) — Rescuers found all 12 boys and their soccer coach alive deep inside a partially flooded cave in northern Thailand late Monday, more than a week after they disappeared and touched off a desperate search that drew international help and captivated the nation.


    Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said the 13 were in the process of being rescued, but he cautioned that they were not out of danger yet.


    “We found them safe. But the operation isn’t over,” he said in comments broadcast nationwide, referring to the complicated process of extricating them.


    Family members of the missing hugged each other as they cheered the news.


    Aisha Wiboonrungrueng, a mother of one of the missing, 11-year-old Chanin Wiboonrungrueng, smiled and hugged her family. She said she would cook her son a Thai fried omelet, his favorite food, when he returns home.
    Rescue divers had spent much of Monday making preparations for a final push to locate the lost soccer players, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach. They disappeared when flooding trapped them after entering the Tham Luang Nang Non cave on June 23.


    Narongsak said the divers located the missing about 300-400 meters (yards) past a section of the cave that was on higher ground and was thought to be where the team members and their coach may have taken shelter.
    “When the medics have evaluated the kids to see if their health is in good condition, we will care for them until they have enough strength to move by themselves, and then we will evaluate the situation on bringing them out again later,” Narongsak said.


    Anmar Mirza, a leading American cave rescue expert, said many challenges remain for the rescuers. He said the primary decision is whether to try to evacuate the boys and their coach or to supply them in place.


    “Supplying them on site may face challenges depending on how difficult the dives are,” Mirza, coordinator of the U.S. National Cave Rescue Commission, said in an email. “Trying to take non-divers through a cave is one of the most dangerous situations possible, even if the dives are relatively easy. That also begets the question: If the dives are difficult then supply will be difficult, but the risk of trying to dive them out is also exponentially greater.”
    Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha thanked the international experts and rescuers who helped locate the missing for their “tremendous efforts.”


    The Royal Thai Government and the Thai people are grateful for this support and cooperation, and we all wish the team a safe and speedy recovery,” Prayuth’s office said in a statement.


    Thai navy SEAL divers and rescue workers from other countries had made initial progress through a narrow passageway early Monday after passing through a key chamber on Sunday whose high, murky waters had previously blocked their progress.


    Gov. Narongsak had said earlier that the passageway goes upward in some places and downward in others and is extremely narrow, making it difficult for divers and their gear to fit through.


    Divers have been stymied repeatedly by rising water that forced them to withdraw for safety reasons. When water levels fell Sunday, the divers went forward with a more methodical approach, deploying a rope line and extra oxygen supplies along the way.


    The SEALs’ Facebook page said that since Sunday night, the divers had reached a bend where the kilometer-long (half-mile-long) passage splits in two directions. The divers were aiming for a sandy chamber on higher ground in the cave.


    Narongsak explained early Monday that fixing rope lines and deploying oxygen tanks along their route will allow the divers to operate.


    In addition to the divers, teams have been working to pump out water as well as divert groundwater. Other efforts have focused on finding shafts on the mountainside that might serve as a back door to the blocked-off areas.


    Teams have been combing the mountainside looking for fissure that might lead to such shafts. Several have been found and explorers have been able to descend into some.


    Experts in cave rescues from around the world had gathered at the site. An official Australian group has followed a U.S. military team, British cave experts, Chinese lifesaving responders and several other volunteer groups from various countries.


    “These are challenging conditions and there’s a lot of consideration for safety as well as, the environment outside is contributing to the environment inside,” said U.S. Air Force Capt. Jessica Tait, part of a 30-member U.S. military team assisting in the search operation, referring to the rain that has been flooding the cave. “So I’d say, yeah, it’s an accurate statement that it’s challenging.”
