Obviously I wish nothing but the very best to all concerned but as things look rather better for them now I was wondering to myself how would I set about entertaining a group a dozen youngsters in such circumstances. So any suggestions

I have just noticed that the youngsters are in fact all bouys so will that make them easier to entertain? It now seems they may be there for some time.

It seems that as a precaution they are to be taught to dive, and 4 months of rations are being taken as a back stop. In that scenario they may take homework down! What a relief they are ok so far but now the hard work starts. Reminds me of the Peru miners saga

It's an astonishing scenario, but of course there are many dangers still to be faced, not the least of which is that heavy rain is expected within a week.

If the pumps can get the water level down before that happens, the rescuers may make an attempt to bring the boys out, but it will be a technical nightmare - they have over 2 kilometres to travel.

Nobody should start celebrating just yet.

I have heard that part of the problem is that there is an underwater passage, that is only suitable for a single Diver to go through at a time, and is not suitable for someone being led, roped to a lead Diver.

A new video has been released of the 12 boys and their football coach trapped in a Thai cave, in which they say they are in good health.

Bit difficult to play eye spy in the dark.

Imagine being trapped in total darkness for 9 days must have been mind blowingly horrendous?

Hope hey can get them out sooner rather than later another 4 months not sur ifI could take that.

I have to ask the question, what is a football team and its coach doing in a cave in the first place.

I heard they were already rescued and they are all in good shape and good spirit. They survived by drinking water from the stalactite formations inside the cave.

Sadly a rescue diver died today, which emphasises the difficulty of this rescue.
