Thai governor announces successful rescue operations

The youngsters and their coach were found alive by Thai navy seals.

CHIANG RAI, THAILAND - JULY 2: Rescue workers work on the water pumping machine at the entrance of Tham Luang Nang Non cave on July 2, 2018 in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Officials believe the team became trapped when monsoon rains flooded passages and blocked their path back to the entrance of the cave where authorities found their bicycles.

No contact had been made from the trapped Wild Boar soccer team boys in 10 days.

Then the boy breaks into simple English, saying, "Eat, eat, eat", to which another voice responds in Thai that he already told that to the rescuer.

"We will bring food to them and a doctor who can dive".

One of the divers asks, "How many of you are there - 13?"

At Mae Sai Prasitsart school, where six of the missing boys studied, special prayers were held for the junior soccer team during the morning assembly on Monday.

Thai police stand in front of the entrance to a cave complex where 12 boys and their soccer coach went missing, in Mae Sai, C.

In the video shared by the Thai Navy Seals, the two British men can be heard telling the group they are the first to arrive but "many more are coming".

A low scoring, methodically played match will play to Denmark's advantage. "Relationships and tactics get better", he explained. But Jorgensen saved what would have surely been a goal , and then his goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel came to the rescue.

A huge worldwide rescue effort has been under way, with teams slowly making their way through thick mud and high water to try to reach the group in a network that stretches 10km (6 miles) into a mountain. They were reported missing by a mother after her young son did not come home that night.

They were found on Monday, July 2.

In a press conference, Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said they would continue to drain water out of the cave while sending doctors and nurses in to check the health of the boys and their coach.

Rescue divers spent much of Monday preparing for a final push to locate the group.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, went missing with the 25-year-old after soccer practice on June 23 after they set out to explore the Tham Luang cave complex in a forest park near by the border with Myanmar.

The captivating search for the group brought in cave rescue experts from the USA military, the UK, China and Australia.

Pat Moret, a rescue consultant, added the team will likely need a lot of medical treatment before they can be moved.

He says that "if the dives are hard then supply will be hard, but the risk of trying to dive them out is also exponentially greater". Reymenants said the team was found in the dark and wet underground web of tunnels in the jungle of northern Thailand about a day after rescuers spotted fresh writing on a wall of one of the passageways.

"Supplying them on site may face challenges depending on how hard the dives are", Mr Mirza, co-ordinator of the US National Cave Rescue Commission.
