At least two of a group of boys trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand for two weeks have been successfully brought out, the BBC reported a short while ago.

Rescuers decided to go ahead with the hazardous operation on Sunday because of fears of rising waters.

Divers are guiding the 12 boys and their coach through darkness and submerged passageways towards the mouth of the Tham Luang cave system.

They are being rescued in groups. It is unclear how long the mission will take.

The boys, aged between 11 and 17, have been trapped with their coach since 23 June

    Congratulations to the Thailand’s civil and military team that quickly trained the small boys how to swim and dive,before taking this enormous risk and bringing them out which involve continuos diving for hours in total darkness through the water passage which at places is less than one metre in height. These Thai rescue guys should be recognised by the UN. But the West can’t stomach the limelight going to non whites, so soon the Western press would begin “STORIES” that it was the Western divers who actually rescued the boys.

    Its always good to appreciate people when they do a good thing no matter whether they are from West or East. Actually Divers from US and Britain joined to help them. Check their first video,in that the soldier speaks in English and the boys seems not that familiar with English. Anyway Hats Off for everyone who helped them and proved that still humanity exists in this beautiful Planet.
