The event that has gripped Thailand and all of Asia can now have a resolution.
A football team composed of 12 boys and their coach have been missing for nine days before two British divers discovered them in the Tham Luang caves in Chiang Rai.
Rick Standon and John Volanthen, the two British rescuers, arrived in Thailand early last week. And in a video posted by the Thai Navy SEAL special forces, it can be heard that the rescuer asked, “How many of you”, and someone replied “Thirteen!”
The thirteen includes the boys and their football coach. The challenge now is how to get them out of the cave safely, considering that the water is rising and the volume of mud can be impeding the rescuers’ access.
The rescuers found that the boys were 440 yards away from an underground chamber where they can be easily accessed, but the rescuees have moved to higher ground to avoid the rise of water.
Nevertheless, families of the missing individuals were glad to know that their loved ones are safe and that rescue operations are in place.
