Rescuers are making every effort to extract at least the strongest of the trapped footballers from a Thai cave before heavy rains forecast for Saturday, according to a military source.

Key points: Navy source says two of the boys are in a weaker condition He said the 25-year-old coach, who sacrificed his share of food, is also feeling weak The source dismissed reports that water levels inside the cave had dropped by 40 per centA navy source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the ABC three factors are driving the urgency โ€” the water level inside the cave, the amount of oxygen available, and the health of the boys and their coach.

“The pressure we are experiencing comes from working against the weather, as the forecasts tell us there will be heavy rain in this area within 48 hours,” he said.
