Young soccer players missing in a cave

THE Royal Thai Navy’s SEAL unit today (June 25, 2018) continues its search for 13 young soccer players who went missing in a cave in the northern Thai province of Chiang Rai since Saturday (June 23, 2018), the Thai-language daily Thai Rath reported.

“We are worried about the missing boys because there is little oxygen inside the long cave,” said Chiang Rai provincial police commander Pol-Maj Komsan Sa-ardluan.

Luckily, the cave has some holes that allow the air to flow into it, he said, adding that there is also running water inside the cave.
