Word from Thailand in the past 20 minutes ago is that a ninth and tenth boy have been successfully rescued form the cave where twelve young soccer players and their coach have been trapped for over two weeks.
Today’s rescue mission began just after 10 a-m local time and
involves 19 divers.
Rescuers are aiming at removing the remaining two boys and their coach today and officials say a medic and three SEALS in the cave who have been caring for those trapped will also come out today.
A Thai health-ministry official says the eight boys already
rescued over the past two days are in “high spirits” and have
strong immune systems.
Two possibly have a lung infection, but all eight are generally
“healthy and smiling.”
