Rescuers have resumed their operations to save the lives of the final nine boys trapped in Tham Luang caves in Thailand.
Authorities are in a race against time to rescue the boys as fresh rain is likely to reflood the cave system, despite rescuers using pumps to remove up to 10,000 litres of water from the cave an hour.
Parents appear to be in the dark on the rescue operation, with four boys being rescued yesterday to the apparent surprise of parents.
“We heard four boys are out but we do not know who they are. None of us has been informed of anything,” the mother of one boy told AFP.
13 foreign divers including experts from Britain, are working alongside five Thai Navy SEAL divers – with the conditions amongst the most difficult some experts had ever ecountered.
The diving is made more difficult with divers having to remove tanks to pass through cracks in the cave, and some of the boys are themselves unable to swim.
More to come.
