So thinking of those boys.  Just to live thru 10 days in the dark in that place, not knowing where they were or what to do, and still be sane and looking happy, is a miracle.  One hour in there in the dark and I would be a blithering idiot.  Fingers crossed for them, and they all get out.
What a massive undertaking by those cave rescue people just to find them.   Oh I am so thinking of them and hoping for a good outcome.

Swimming underwater in the dark in a very confined space would be terrifying. Throw in the risk of hypothermia and these kids will be facing a very difficult exit.
And then the rain has made it worse because they all have to swim out against the current.
With one diver already dead it is no east task for anyone.

I'm glad it isn't me. Good luck to them and the divers.

The media are having a field day though.
This morning channel 7's Koshy described the passage in an animated way as being no larger than a man's head. Yet last night the 'choke' was the narrowest part of the passage at 60 cm diameter.

You've got a big head Koshy.
I started with nothing and still have most of it left

Very little swimming involved. Swimming would be a luxury. More crawling, squeezing and pulling on guide-line.

Imagine having to choose who goes first etc, and imagine being those first 4 boys, leaving your buddies behind.    The conditions would be unimaginable for those of us who have never done this sort of thing.   Having already lost an expert Navy Seal, the mind boggles at how they are going to get everyone out alive.  Thoughts are with them for a safe release for all.

The big question is , WHY would any idiot take a team of kids into such and area in the first place.

Still ,     I could ask Barnaby why he would find himself in such dangerous places too.        . AND he was running the Country.

If you had followed the story Macca they went in there to get out of a storm, it started to flood so it appeared they went further in and that's when the drama started, not knowing the terrain they were heading into trouble, that's my take, fwiw.

A Dutch diver assisting with the rescue said the 12 boys were led into the caves by their soccer coach as part of an initiation ritual where they inscribe their names on one of the rock faces.

Despite warning signs about the caves being dangerous and prone to flooding outside the entrance he took them in , so he disobeyed all warnings and when the rains came and flooded the entrance they were led further back in and in, is that how you read it PT?

Yes carioca, that is the logical explanation of what happened to them. Once trapped they went higher inside.. I doesn't explain how they came to be in there though, and probably, only they would know for sure, so the fact the reason is coming from a Dutch rescue diver suggests he or another diver asked them. Would also explain the coach apologizing to the parents.

There bringing them out in daily batches of 4 from what I can work out. It's something like 4 and half kilometres and they have to come out against the current. Amazing if they can get it done. I'm mildly claustrophobic so the whole thing fills me with horror!

5 hours in and 6 hours back. They are hopeful to get the last 4 children out today.
Then the adult.

So they have 8 out now ?  How good is that !!!ClapI too am  hugely claustrophobic and cant even imagine getting thru those spaces, but you would never have got me in there anyway.  Its amazing what humans can do when everyone works together.  All those people from so many different countries and religions, all working together for those kids.  Just hoping for the remainder to be safe now, and all the divers too.

They just said some may be able to go home tomorrow. Having not eaten for 10 days, they also had to make sure their stomachs were ok for solid normal food. Many had wanted spicy food but were not allowed till they were cleared.

They will be continued to be monitored, some diseases could talk months before effects are shown.

Also mentally, they will be scarred for life now.
Hope they have good child psychologists to help them

I'm not too sure about the mental scarring, Asians in general are a helluva lot tougher than we pampered ones in the Lucky Country.
