thailand cave rescue

Four members of a soccer team stranded in a Thai cave were rescued on Sunday.
Officials say the remaining members — eight boys and their coach — are currently being extracted.
The team has been stuck in the Tham Luang cave network since June 23, when water levels partially flooded the escape routes.

Rescue divers have headed back inside a flooded cave complex in Thailand in the second phase of a desperate mission to rescue the remaining eight members of a trapped soccer team.

Ten rescuers put on scuba gear and headed into the Tham Luang cave network around 1 p.m. local time on Monday to extract the remaining members of the junior soccer team, and their coach, Thai officials said.

Four members of the Wild Boar soccer team were rescued on Sunday, and are recovering from their ordeal in hospital. Rescuers took out the weakest boys first.

Eight other boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach remain stranded.

The soccer team had been trapped in the underground cave network since June 23. They were stranded by flash floods that caused water levels to rise, making it difficult to get out.
