BBC is reporting that the boys may be trapped in the cave for several months if they can’t learn how to dive. They are having difficulty draining the water enough for them to walk out and it’s the rainy season until September or October. They can get medical personnel and food to them. The difficulty is getting them out without diving through water for an extended length.

It is great news that they were found.  The next issue is how to get them out.  They are something like two miles underground.  


@GCR18.  I heard on the news they will have to swim underwater in the dark to get out.  I wonder how far and how in the world they'll accomplish that?  If it's far, they'll have to have SCUBA gear.  The possible complications sound almost insurmountable.

It is not over for them,  they have to scuba dive to get out, this will take a long time , what if it keeps rainning?

Sorry, but this is far from over. I will proclaim excellent news when they are recovered.

@RetRN, it's a heck of a lot better than the alternative, so I'll stick with my thread title.
