Rescuers seek alternative ways to free trapped Thai boy from cave

6 July 2018

Rescuers are now seeking alternative ways to free the trapped 12 boys and their football coach from a cave in northern Thailand. The persistent rainfall has made the rescue operation challenging, a senior Thai official said on Thursday. The effort to drain water from the flooded cave in order to clear a passageway for the rescue operation has already shown progress. However, heavy rain forecast for the coming days will most likely complicate the operation. The massive rescue operation has entered the 13th day on Thursday.
