Thai cave rescue: Divers prepare for phase 3

So far, the divers extracted 8 boys from the cave and today, the high-risk rescue operation is underway to bring the remaining four boys and their coach, who were trapped in the vast flooded cave in Thailand.

 

Rescuers have been taking the strongest boys out first.

 

 

Two divers were assigned to each child to help them navigate the dangerous, narrow passageways.

 

The boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach became stranded when they went exploring inside after a practice game. Monsoon flooding blocked off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for almost 10 days.
