  • Former navy diver dies during Thailand cave rescue effort

This week, a former Thai Navy SEAL died after passing out during the journey through the cave, and officials said some of the boys are in poor condition from their long stay in the cave. However, there has been no official word on this so far.

Elite divers on Sunday began the extremely unsafe operation to extract 12 boys and their football coach who have been trapped in a flooded cave complex in northern Thailand for more than two weeks, with some of the rescuers reaching the area where the team is sheltering.

The entire world has their eyes fixed on the tireless rescue operations that are now underway in Tham Luang cave in Thailand where a junior football team of 12 boys led by a young coach is trapped.

According to a document released by the Thai authorities, two divers will accompany each of the teenagers.

The rescue teams had rehearsed the plan for several days, Narongsak said, and had managed to drain the cave water level considerably, but needed to move fast.

The group became trapped in a cramped chamber deep inside Tham Luang in a mountainous area of northern Thailand on June 23, when they went in after football practice and got caught behind rising waters.

"I think Narongsak and the commanders changed their minds after the Australian doctor inspected the boys' health and mental state", one senior Thai journalist said. "If that's the case, then we have to reassess the situation", he said.

A statement issued by the rescue operation said that at 2p.m., the 13 divers were in position for the extraction, although it was not clear if the children had begun diving.

In a tweet Sunday morning, U.S. President Donald Trump said, "The U.S.is working very closely with the Government of Thailand to help get all of the children out of the cave and to safety". The ambulances and helicopter are on standby to take the rescue to a hospital. Narongsak said Saturday that experts told him water from new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are sheltering to just 10 square meters (108 square feet). "Finding the boys doesn't mean we've finished our mission".

The names of the rescued boys were not released.

The names of the four boys rescued from the caves last night have not been officially confirmed.

The boys wore "full face masks and the rescue divers carried them out through the passage in the cave complex", Governor Osotthanakorn told a news conference after the rescue.
