I just wonder how the transported are medicated?

The biggest risk in cave diving is panicking, so obviously there are measures taken to avoid any panicking.

Glad that the dives are not particularly deep. At least THAT sort of complication is absent.

Damn! that is pretty tight constriction where the passage takes a sharp left hand turn between the T-junction and Pattaya Beach.

That map looks legit, somebody must have already surveyed it at least in part.


Yup.
That one part looks very narrow.
3 hours underwater, in dark murky waters, to get out. :shock:

I'm an 'adequate' swimmer and have been in a couple caves (fully guided tours at touristy sites like Mammoth Caves) but I doubt that I could have managed as well as these boys have.
The boys, their coach and the rescuers deserve more credit than we can ever hope to give.


My guess is that . . . not the entire transit is water filled. Based on footage and commentary they seem to have been approaching it form multiple directions: (a) breach the barriers that cause upstream impounding of water thus leading to pooling and flooding; (b) accelerate the drainage of the pooling with pumps; (c) break ceilings where they drop lower water level.

Most likely, at this point, the transit from where they were trapped to the exit alternates between water crawl with sufficient (though perhaps quite low) air space, to water-filled tube to stoop walk with sufficient air space, then back to crawl, then back to water filled tube, etc. There may even be significant sections of just straight up walking which are periodically interspersed with clambering over boulders, ducking under ledges, etc.

Today may be the last day, 5 left plus the two Seals who were watching them.

Pray they make it, if your atheist pray anyway.

If that happens then scurry over to Isan they always need rain.

If there are gods, they do not help, and justice belongs to the strong: but know that all things done before the naked stars are remembered.
