Cave rescue: Divers ready to save remaining five Thais

Divers are preparing to resume a high-risk rescue operation to free the last five members of a group who became trapped in a vast cave system in northern Thailand last month.

The health of the four boys and their football coach is said to be good as they ready to be guided through the narrow flooded passages of the complex.

Eight boys have been brought out of the caves over the past two days.

The operation inside the Tham Luang caves has attracted global attention.

The group became trapped on 23 June after heavy rains caused flooding. They were found last week by divers.

Now that the four kilometre (4km) underground distance and physical effort that a lone diver would have likely had to endure on the way back from an eight kilometre (8km) virtual triathalon, the last stage submarine, with the oxygen supply defying gravity to what little was left in the tank above, is clearly illustrated below, the death of Petty Officer First Class Saman Gunan, R.I.P. can be somewhat more adequately comprehended for the unforseen tragedy it could have been, without me knowing the details of where in that cave he lost his life.

If the last five(5) fellows are rescued successfully today, then at least he might look down from the heavens and have some consolation for his ultimate loss.

Good luck to the rescue project.
