Report Suggests Health Waning for Some of Boys Stuck in Thailand Cave

Agonising rescue ahead for Thai cave boys as nation rejoices Video: Meet the Thai Soccer Players Trapped in a Cave

Generators are powering water pumps and refilling oxygen tanks for divers at the scene.

Video from Thai Navy special forces on Monday showed the boys looking emaciated but smiling and at times laughing.

Lit by flashlights, the video shows numerous team members wrapped in silver emergency blankets.

If rescuers decide on the diving option, one way to mitigate panic among the boys would be to have one of them - the most assured - go first.

"Nobody will teach anyone a full cave course, but trying to get them comfortable with masks, with the breathing, (is) completely different", said Claus Rasmusen, a certified cave diving instructor based in Thailand who has been helping Thai SEAL team.

Another video from inside the cave shows a medic treating scratches on one of the boy's feet.

Thai Navy divers have brought in substantial supplies - including food and water for at least two weeks along with aluminum blankets, with support from Australian and other worldwide divers, according to a statement from the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

One local civil servant, who had volunteered to help hand out supplies, said he did not know the boys personally but had chose to help because "I consider the boys in the caves as my brothers".

The magnitude of the problem has now overtaken the initial rejoicing when they were found earlier this week.

In a bid to free 12 Thai boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in northern Thailand, rescuers will be under pressure to try "high-risk" options, a cave rescue expert has warned.

He eventually ended up at Alabama and coached here last season when the Crimson Tide played in the Barclays Center Classic. Huerter made 42 percent of his 3-point shots as a sophomore last season at Maryland while averaging 14.8 points per game.

But they will have to wait until the trapped Thai boys have eaten solid food and gained weight before a perilous swim to freedom can be attempted.

Some areas in the cave complex are so narrow the boys, who can not swim and do not have diving experience, would have to swim through the muddy waters unaccompanied.

The agency is working on putting together a route to the cave for visitors interested in seeing where the group got lost - which would include nearby communities, including a village that specializes in making paper out of mulberry trees, and one that produces seed tea.

The boys and their coach are being tended to around the clock by a team of Thai navy divers and a doctor. "These are really, really small spaces that these [rescuers] had to get to, to get to the kids in the first place".

The boys are seen by torchlight sitting on a ledge above water, responding to the divers that all 13 are there and they are very hungry. It's a sign that the window of unseasonable sunshine that authorities have been granted this week is coming to an end, and the 12 boys may soon be cut off for months.

Seeing the boys has boosted the mood of their family members, and officials are working to install an internet cable to the cave so that parents can talk to their children.

Rescue efforts could be complicated by the rainy forecast for the rest of the week, which could cause water levels in the cave to rise. But that could mean months of waiting.

After being reported missing on June 23, the police and park officials began a search.

Water levels in the cave have been dropping by about one centimetre per hour and at least 130 million litres had been pumped out by Thursday. Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda told reporters Tuesday that rising water levels will make it harder to keep the boys and their 25-year-old coach supplied with the food, water and medicine to recover from their 10 days and counting underground.

Maxtech Networks told The Times of Israel Thursday that its system is providing a voice, data, and video link to the boys who have been stuck in the cave for almost two weeks, and were only located earlier this week.
