More people brought out of Thai cave
    2018-07-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

RESCUE workers in Thailand brought out four people yesterday from a flooded cave where 12 boys and their soccer coach were trapped for more than two weeks, taking the total number rescued to eight.

Witnesses near the Tham Luang cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai saw medical personnel carrying four people out of the cave to waiting ambulances over the course of the day.

The rescue operation was launched Sunday and four boys were brought out that day. They were in good condition in hospital, officials said.

A fifth boy was brought out earlier yesterday, a navy official said, and three more were seen being brought out over subsequent hours.

The identity of the three people brought out in the evening could not be confirmed and the chief of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, declined to comment, saying a news conference would be held later.

The “Wild Boars” soccer team and their coach got trapped June 23 when they set out to explore the vast cave complex after soccer practice, when a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels.

British divers found the 13, huddled on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometers inside the complex last week.

The dangerous bid to rescue the boys — aged between 11 and 16 — got going again hours earlier yesterday after a break to replenish oxygen supplies and make other preparations deep inside the cave complex.

Thirteen foreign divers and five members of Thailand’s elite navy SEAL unit make up the main team guiding the boys to safety through narrow, submerged passageways that claimed the life of a former Thai navy diver Friday. (SD-Agencies)
