Well, you are smarter than the coach! That is sad that he took them all in there, AND that they don't know how to swim!
It is good they are getting food to them, I was wondering how they are taking care of bathroom needs.

Rescue Diver Dies in Thailand Cave

Former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Kunan died after running out of oxygen in the cramped, waterlogged passageways of the Tham Luang caves in northern Thailand this morning. Rest in Peace.

The 38-year-old was trying to reach a cavern set up as a command centre 1.2miles inside the caves and had been leaving oxygen tanks around the network as part of preparations for rescuing the 12 young footballers. But he ran out of air at 2am local time and his diving partner was unable to revive him.

His body will be flown to his hometown in Roi Et for a royally-sponsored funeral, the Thai king announced. Pictures today showed military officials transporting his flag-draped coffin.

The cave's oxygen level has dropped from 21% to 15% with the presence of so many rescue workers there.

Cave diving is seriously dangerous, especially in muddy conditions, even for expert divers. I don't think it's reasonable to expect that the boys, who can't even swim, will be scuba diving out of the cave.

Elon Musk is sending teams of engineers in hopes of setting up an inflatable tube which the boys and their coach can use to crawl to safety.

Good news: four of the Thai soccer players have been successfully rescued from the cave by rescue divers.

According to an official, among the freed quartet are Nattawut 'Tle' Takamsai, 11 (top), Prajak Sutham, 14 (bottom left), and Pipat Bodhi, 15 (bottom right).

Thirty-five emergency doctors were on standby as the 'exhausted' boys were flown by military helicopter or driven in ambulances to Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital.

Divers will not be rescuing the remaining eight children tonight, the Thai Public Broadcast Service announced, reporting: ‘Only six of the boys will be taken out tonight.’ However, authorities later confirmed they had only been able to rescue four boys, instead of the planned six.

The other eight players – and their coach – will remain underground and be rescued tomorrow, the state-funded news agency said.

Divers are expected to re-enter the caves in between ten and twenty hours' time because there were not enough air tanks along the route to continue, an official said.

A staggering 90 divers have been involved in the rescue in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex, with only 40 of them coming from Thailand.

Yesterday the boys' parents sent a letter to soccer coach and told him it's not his fault and they want him to keep taking care of their sons until they're rescued.

Great news. Yesterday, the rescue teams got the last of the school boys and the coach out of the cave.

They're all in the hospital being evaluated and monitored, but all reportedly appear stable.

It was inspiring seeing so many people from all over working together to pull off a really risky mission; good planning and execution too.
