Thai cave rescue: Good conditions for extracting trapped boys, soccer coach, may be imminent, with conditions favourable

A RESCUE of the boysโ€™ soccer team trapped underground in a Thai cave may be imminent, with conditions favourable for an extraction.The area around a cave in northern Thailand where a dozen boys and their soccer coach have been trapped is being cleared in readiness for the rescue operation.

The announcement from authorities came as dark monsoon rain clouds loomed over the mountainous north of the country early on Sunday, potentially heightening risks at the cave where rescuers were still waging a “war with water and time” to save the 12 trapped boys and their coach.”Assessing the situation now, it is necessary to evacuate the area for the rescue operation,” said Mae Sai police commander Komsan Sa-ardluan over a loudspeaker.”

Those unrelated to the rescue operation, please evacuate the area immediately.”
