British divers managed to successfully find 12 missing boys and their 25-year-old soccer coach who are trapped in a cave in Thailand. The children along with their coach were found alive and well, though a bit weak, by British divers. But this happy news was short-lived when rescuers realised that they would not be able to immediately get the kids out of the cave. The group of young Thai football players had gone missing for since June 23, 2018 until they could be located. They got trapped in the cave due to the heavy monsoon rainwater entering it. It is a miracle that they could even be located thanks to the team of British divers.
According to reports, the British team of four divers had joined the army rescue workers last week as they searched the pitch black of the vast Tham Luang cave network in northern part of Thailand. All the boys, who are members of the Wild Boar soccer team, are aged between 11 and 16 years. They were discovered by the divers late on Monday, July 2, 2018.
A videotape that was released by the British divers after they were able to locate the boys shows them in the cave looking weak. They are also heard being questioned regarding how many of them are there, to which they replied, 13. The rescuers are in the meantime being helped with medical supplies and food that includes high-calorie gels and paracetamol. Efforts are on to try and make a nurse available to the trapped young men. There are also reports that the boys may have to be trained on how to dive so that they may be rescued from the cave.
