Foreign divers to join cave search

THREE foreign divers will arrive in Thailand this evening (June 27, 2018) to help Thai rescuers search for 12 young soccer players and their coach who have gone missing in a cave in the northern Thai province of Chiang Rai since Saturday (June 23, 2018), the Thai-language daily Thai Rath reported.

Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said the three experienced divers have explored caves with running water around the world. They will communicate online with an American cave explorer during the search.

“My biggest concern is the health and mental conditions of the boys,” said Mr Narongsak. “We appreciate the help of everyone who are tirelessly trying to rescue the boys.”
