10 July, 2018, 14:17
The Thai official overseeing the effort to rescue members of a teen soccer team trapped in a flooded cave says a third rescue operation has begun Tuesday and aims to bring out the remaining four boys and their coach.
The challenges 12 boys and their soccer coach are facing as they make their way out of a flooded cave in Thailand are more mental than physical, Canadian cave divers and rescuers said Monday.
At a news conference Monday, former Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn said the second rescue involved numerous same divers who brought the four boys out on Sunday.
The plan, he said, is to bring out the four boys and their coach on Tuesday if the weather cooperates.
The footballers still awaiting rescue are about two kilometers further in, at a point very hard to access.
The boys went missing after football practice with their 25-year-old coach on 23 June.
"From the first day to the second day we can do it two hours faster".
Having completed this section, the boys are then handed over to separate, specialist rescue teams, who help assist them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they can wade through.
The plight of the boys and their coach has drawn global attention, with divers, engineers and medics among others flying in from around the world to assist.

Mr Narongsak said: "All conditions are still as good as they were yesterday. we are ready like before".
Although there have been no major reported complications during the initial rescues, the death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver who ran out of oxygen in a flooded area of the cave on Friday underscored the dangers of the journey.
The risky underwater rescues - considered a last resort - involve two divers accompanying each of the boys, none of whom had experience diving before they were found on July 2.
Among these were that none of the boys had scuba diving experience, and that they could easily panic while swimming underwater in darkness.

The eight boys rescued after being trapped for more than two weeks were described as generally healthy. The safety of the divers, who have meticulously planned the mission, is also paramount.
