“According to Dr Rogers, it is possible the boys won’t be wearing air tanks themselves, but will have an airline fed to them from the expert divers swimming alongside them, while the accompanying Navy SEAL divers will wear air tanks on their backs.”

They are saying all remaining 5, including the coach, wiil come out tomorrow….
that makes sense as the air tanks all along the way need to be replaced ….

Still don’t understand how a coach could routinely take his team after practice into the dangerous, difficult cave without any preparation, study or warning of what they were doing to some authority.

I am glad that they are going to be saved, but it is little short of a miracle that they just didn’t disappear forever without any explanation with one death already to the rescuers.

And I am no nervous nellie.

evidently they had been to the cave before…. I think it was a skill builder/team builder exercise ( just guessing) and it wasn’t officially the wet season yet. They didn’t hear the rain from inside and found out too late.
Coach’s bio is sad. He lost his whole family at 7 in an epidemic and an aunt sent hi to a monastery because he was so sad. I think his becoming a Buddhist monk for that time gave him skills to keep the kids calm all those days.
Watching Thai tv –

US media asleep at the switch all weekend while world press ran away with this fascinating saga.

It seems to be going well because they widened those narrow points and the water is lower in many stretches that were submerged before …. I read the diver died after getting that underwater confusion that goes with not enough air, or nitrogen poisoning that divers can get.
