Twelve boys and their soccer coach are missing in a flooded cave complex in Thailand. High water levels are complicating search efforts, but officials are hoping that the group is still alive in an air-filled chamber.
The boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach went into the cave after a match a week ago. Near-constant rains have hampered the international rescue effort to find them.
A Thai soccer team and their coach have told how they tried to dig their way out of a flooded cave after becoming trapped. The boys were saved in a risky three-stage rescue operation by a team of international experts.
In the first phase of the rescue operation, four members of a Thai soccer team have been brought out from a flooded cave where they have been for two weeks. Rescue teams are preparing for the next phase of the mission.
