Thai boys already lost for a week in a cave. International teams helping in search.

Desperate search for boys' soccer team lost in Thailand cave hampered by rains

 

A nation continued to hold its breath Friday and hope for the safe return of 12 young soccer players and their coach who remain trapped in a flooded cave in northern Thailand after disappearing nearly a week ago.

 

"My son! Come on out! I'm waiting for you here!" one mother could be heard calling into the cave recently as she stood next to her child's bicycle.

 

Tham Luang, Thailand's longest cave and a popular tourist site, is said to be a labyrinth, miles of passageways and tunnels running underground that can flood up to 20 feet during heavy downpours.

 

It's believed that the coach often brought his team to the cave for fun excursions. The boys, who are between 11 and 16 years old, went missing with their coach after he took them to the cave complex after soccer practice June 24.

 

It's believed the group crawled through a narrow channel that may now be flooded after days of heavy rainfall.

These caves usually need a guide. Parts where you need to swim underwater for a distance to get out.

Better leave it to those experienced spelunkers as they are trained.
SCDF boys might be more of a hindrance in such unfamiliar terrain.

This is cave diving. Our NDU probably have some similar skills but this is pretty specialised. Lot of these cave divers experts actually do it for their own interest.
To me, going into these big cave system is just dangerous. U never know when a flash flood will occur. Everything looks the same.
Even these divers take great risk considering there's no GPS inside these places. Your guide rope may tangle onto something. The water may be murky at times.
