Rescue operation begins for Thai boys in cave

Thai authorities early Sunday began the operation to rescue the 12 young boys and their soccer coach from the deep cave in which they are trapped. They are in race against time as rain clouds gather overhead. The boys have been huddled for two weeks in a small cave some 4km inside the Tham Luang Nang Non network, while water was pumped out to keep them alive. Their only option now is to dive through dark, narrow, jagged water-logged tunnels, for which they have been given crash courses in scuba diving. The rescue operation is perilous and will take days. The surface area around the caves has been cleared of non-essential personnel.

        15:45 GMT – Four boys have exited Thai cave.

        I hope their soccer coach imbecile gets out too, but I say he should then receive a free sex change and go coaching knitting or so. Nope, better not! One kick in the back from each parent feels like more desirable.
