Officials announce rescue operation now underway for trapped soccer team in Thailand
2018-07-08, 09:32 AM,
CHIANG RAI — Today is the day, the head of the rescue operation said Sunday morning.

Divers have begun the extraction effort at the Luang Nang Non cave where 12 boys and their football coach have now been trapped for a 16th day, according to former Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osottanakorn.

“Today is the D-Day,” he said. “At 10am, 13 foreign divers went in to rescue the boys with five Thai navy SEAL divers.”

He insisted that all 13 were physically and mentally prepared, and their families notified.

Water and time remain the two difficulties facing rescuers. But with another storm brewing, he said it had to happen now.

“A new storm is coming. If we wait, if it rains, we’ll have to continue pumping out the water again,” he said as light rain fell outside local government offices where the media has been moved.

Two expert divers will accompany each child.

They will come out in pairs. He said the earliest they might come out could be at about 9pm.

Other alternatives, including drilling from the back of the cave have not proven successful, he said.
