Searchers nearing deep cave chamber that might hold missing teens

Searchers nearing deep cave chamber
Rescuers say they've made progress in their search for a dozen teenage soccer players trapped in a Thailand cave, who have now been missing for nine days.


Six Thai Navy SEAL divers have gone several miles into the cave complex after using pumps to reduce the water level in the flooded cave, which allowed divers to place guide ropes and air tanks along the route.

Rescuers are hoping the reduced flooding and new efforts will help them reach a deeper chamber, known as Pattaya Beach, where the members of the Wild Boar soccer team are believed to be trapped.

Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, commander of Thailand's SEAL unit, said divers had so far reached chamber three of the complex.

"Today what we have to do is to rush to the kids ... We will not stop until we find them," Yuukongkaew said.

  1. Twelve boys and their football coach trapped in a Thai cave are alive, but will need learn to dive or wait months for flooding to recede before they can get out, the army says.
    The group had been missing for nine days before they were found by divers late on Monday on a small dry ledge.
    Rescuers are now battling rising water to bring more supplies to the group.
    They may need to have food sent in for at least the next four months, according to the military.
