Rescued boys to dive out of cave

RESCUERS today (July 3, 2018) are training the 13 young soccer players how to dive out of the cave as the level of water inside the rock chamber remains high, the Thai-language daily Thai Rath reported.

The 13 boys are in good spirits after meeting the rescuers who brought along food, water and diving gear.

The high water level is the latest challenge that the boys have to overcome, as their families and friends prepare a warm welcome when they return home, said the paper.
