(5 Jul 2018) A member of the Australian Federal Police who are assisting Thai authorities in rescuing the 12 boys and their football coach trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand said on Thursday that rescuing the boys remained a challenge.
Matt Fitzgerald, from Australia's Federal Police tactical response dive team, told reporters despite zero visibility and confined space rescuers were working around problems.
Thai officials have said they prefer to get the boys out as soon as possible because heavy rain is expected to start by Saturday, which almost surely will raise water levels again in the cave, making passage in some areas even more difficult if not impossible.
They are hoping that an upgraded draining effort can lower the water level in an area where it is still at the ceiling or just about.
The idea is to get some headroom so the boys would not be reliant on scuba apparatus for a long stretch and could keep their heads above water.
The boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach disappeared after they went exploring in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in the northern province after a football game June 23.

the real hero cape dive expert, the british dive team, they all seldom go to talk with the press during working.
they really concentrate on the rescue operation.
some foreigner diver came to the cape as volunteer to help on the rescue operation.
but everytime when they out of the cape, they immediately go to the press and talk.
they all act like they are the key man of the operation.
wonder that actually they came to help or came to promote themselves.
Thelma Greer you dont understand what i mean.
if you want to know who is the covert rescuer, covert volunteer, didn't have real intention to help,
just see if he always show his face to the press or not.
News all over the world LIED . They said a tube was used. Made in Thailand. Elon M. is idea. It was reported in India and a few other places but NOT the USA.
Or DID they lie?? Cannot believe ANYTHING on the news or Utube. Made up stories
Take a look a few days ago on Utube...you will see. They showed the tube and EVERYTHING. So What IS the truth ?
lea lemon my point was three countries reported it was being used during the rescue. They showed IT and said it WAS being used. They flat out lied or did America's news LIE? Were you THERE in the rescue? I'm trying to get to the actual TRUTH. Thanks for responding.
Splash Family yeah that is why they dont use it furthermore it is cave has curves not suitabe for that tube which is ain’t flexible . there is a video they just a canvas and the kids was sedative and one diver attached to the kid as well, and other divers brought both of them together .
I'm from neighbour country to Thailand. There has been too much, unpredictable, unexpected heavy rain throughout the south east and east Asian region at this time of the year. shockingly there was flooding in Mumbai, India and Pakistan last week or so. Now bad flooding in western Japan. Typhoon in TaiwN a few days ago and expected to hit China today or in a few days. We are all have been taken by surprise by so much rain.
maybe climate change or global warming?
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
