Thai Cave Rescue: Life-Saving Operation Among Most Difficult, Says Local Diver

The first four boys have taken these off, but the second group who were rescued on Monday are still wearing the eyewear.
The general leading the huge global effort to rescue the young footballers and their coach thanked the god of rain for his forbearance, as the boys were guided out of the Tham Luang caves in full-face masks - easier than traditional respirators for novice divers to use - during an intense nine-hour operation.
"It's taking them five, six, seven hours to get out of this, and most dives are 30, 40, 50 minutes to an hour", said Barnes.
The plight of the boys, aged 11-16, and their coach, has riveted Thailand and much of the world - from the heart-sinking news they were missing to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys once they were found by the pair of British divers deep in the sprawling cave.
Following the initial rescues Sunday, the operation was paused for about 10 hours while divers replenished air tanks along the exit tunnel. It's the experience of Tank Cave that Harris took with him when he was called this week to Chiang Rai, to assist in the soccer team rescue mission.
The plan is "set for four people", Osatanakorn said. Numerous boys do not know how to swim.
"I insist that all 13 will be safe and sound", Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said at a news conference on Monday. "And we have more expertise than yesterday", he said.
The four who were rescued previously were taken to a hospital in Chiang Rai for evaluation.
The unprecedented mission to evacuate the "Wild Boar" football team and their coach from a flooded Thai cave has gripped Thailand and dominated global headlines.
"The Prime Minister wants this to be a lesson, this should not happen again in Thailand", Narongsak said. Thai authorities have said the boys have stayed "good and happy".
American space entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted that he visited the Tham Luang cave operation on Monday and Tuesday morning, and left behind a prototype mini-sub "in case it is useful" at the flooded cave where five members of a youth football team remained trapped.
Musk said it was light enough to be carried by two divers, robust, and small enough to get through narrow gaps. While no details were shared on their exact conditions, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, ABC News' chief medical correspondent, said doctors will likely evaluate their mental as well as physical condition. Other divers were on guard along the unsafe first kilometer of the passageway. Word seems to spread from different sources but the Thai Navy Seals Facebook page gives the official updates. Musk said the submarine is expected to arrive in Thailand around 11 p.m. Monday, local time.
To escape, they have to negotiate 4km of dark, narrow passages by swimming and using scuba equipment and wading.
The search and rescue operation has riveted people in Thailand and internationally, with journalists from across the globe traveling to this town along the border with Myanmar to report on the ordeal.
