The four remaining boys and their coach are still trapped inside the North Thailand cave. They all are in good health even after being trapped in the flooded cave for last 17 days.
The remaining members of the football team, who disappeared after they went exploring in the Tham Luang Nang cave in Northern Chiang Rai province after a football game on June 23, must wait for another 20 hours to be free from the cave.
Watch the video below:
Eight of the thirteen members of the football team have been rescued so far in an operation that began on Sunday.
Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said:
‘We have helped four more children today,’
‘All four boys have arrived at the hospital, all are safe,’
‘The health of the remaining five people inside the cave is still good,’
The remaining boys and their coach will have to wait for at least one more night as rescuers reload oxygen tanks and pray water levels don’t rise.
As only five are remaining now, it is believed that they all would come out at the same time in the next rescue effort.
When asked about it, Narongsak said:
‘It depends on the plan… We have set the plan for four people so if they want to take five out (at the same time), then they need to change the plan.’
A team of 18 divers, including seven British divers, undertook the dangerous operation to free the trapped football team on Sunday. They rescued four boys on Sunday and four more on Monday.
Still, five people are trapped inside the flooded cave. But, everyone is hoping they all would come out in the next rescue effort.
