Out of 13 Rescued from Flooded Cave in Thailand

10 Juillet, 2018, 09:32 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

The billionaire entrepreneur has been tweeting proposals and offering his services to the Thai government in its efforts to extract the 12 boys and their soccer coach from a partially flooded cave.

Eight boys have been rescued in total so far and are recuperating in a hospital after another four were brought out by divers on the second day of a high-stakes rescue operation, a top official said.

The head of the operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said a final operation would be "more challenging" because one more survivor would be brought out than the previous two operations, along with three Navy SEALs who have been accompanying them.

Officials will have to spend about 20 hours preparing all the necessary support equipment, said the former governor, adding that he was confident the rescue team would be able to operate with greater ease and to shorten the time spent by between 4-5 hours.

"All eight rescued boys today are in good health, none have a fever", Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the ministry of public health, told a news conference in Chiang Rai in northern Thailand.

Torrential rain had not affected conditions for the rescue operation. A statement from the hospital said, "The next step is to make sure those kids and their families are safe because living in a cave has a different environment which might contains animals that could transmit any disease".

For the first four rescues on Sunday, two divers accompanied each boy, one from the side and one from behind.

On Monday afternoon, Osatanakorn said the same group of divers involved in Sunday's rescue operation had entered the cave at 11 a.m. local time to rescue the group still stuck inside.

Two of the boys possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling", he said.

Ambulances and a helicopter were seen rushing from the cave site on Monday.

The four remaining boys and their coach, Ekaphol Chantawong, are spending night 17 inside the cave but it is still unclear if they will be freed by the end of Tuesday.

Still, the four were undergoing medical checks in a hospital in Chiang Rai city, the provincial capital, and were not yet allowed close contact with relatives, due to fear of infections.

"The divers that were assembled from many countries are proud to have conducted this operation until its success", Narongsak said.

The following day (24th June), local authorities found hand and foot prints belonging to the team, while relatives started a vigil outside the cave in hopes that they would be found soon. However, they ended up starting the rescue effort a few hours earlier than planned.

Rescuers had planned to take a 10- to 20-hour pause in the rescue efforts to replenish the cave with oxygen and give the team of 18 divers leading the boys on the hard journey a chance to rest.

There were several concerns that prompted authorities to move forward with the plan to dive the boys out. More worrying, however, oxygen levels in the cave were falling.
