Thailand: Boys trapped in cave are being trained on how to get out

Rescue teams must now train the boys trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai in northern Thailand on how to get to the surface, said diving expert Torsten Lechler on Wednesday. «Cave diving is already its own very dangerous task, you're mingling through poor visibility and most likely strong currents which come from the rain and through floods. It's basically going to be a task of... Еще training these youngsters up and getting them through tunnels and back to surface», explained Lechler, a diver who works for the company Mermaid Subsea services, which has pledged to provide supply masks to the boys during an attempt to exit the cave. The 12 boys, none of whom are able to swim, are being taught how to breathe with scuba equipment ahead of a possible attempt to exit the cave. Deputy Spokesman for the Thai Government Wei Ratchon reassured that the children are now being looked after and that the rescue workers are putting in all of their efforts into bringing the students to safety. Thai and international military forces have joined emergency workers in the ongoing rescue operation to save a football team of 12 boys and one coach who remain trapped inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai. The team took a group trip into a different entrance of the famous cave and became trapped after a sudden and continuous downpour of rain struck the area. They were found alive after a 10-day operation carried out by international and Thai forces.
