Four boys have been rescued from Tham Luang cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park, but eight others, as well as the coach, are still waiting for their turn.


It has been quite a busy Sunday, July 8, 2018, for the rescue teams involved in the operation that aims to bring the Boars soccer team to safety before the monsoon rains that threaten to hit the Chiang Rai area arrive.

According to Reuters, the four boys, who were considered to be the weakest, have been safely evacuated from the cave and transported by air and land to the nearest hospitals.

Following a report that the area could be flooded by intense rains, the officials in charge of the operation decided that they couldn't wait any longer and started sending divers in to position themselves along several chambers within the cave.

Aside from the dangerous rains on the horizon, it was revealed that the water levels had dropped by 30 percent, which allowed the divers to have an easier time reaching the stranded group.

Still, even with the water levels at their lowest levels since the beginning of the operation, the rescuers are aware that they are dealing with an extremely dangerous and delicate situation.


The plan is to continue extracting the boys one by one with a pair of divers guiding them through the narrow and submerged passageways that claimed the life of Saman Kunan, a former Thai Navy SEAL, on Friday.


The identities of the six rescued boys are yet to be revealed but they are currently being treated by medicals teams as they wait for their companions to join them.

The boys, whose ages range between 11 and 16, set out on an adventure to explore the cave near the border with Burma with their 25-year-old coach on June 23, but little did they know that they would wind up trapped there for more than two weeks.
