Bangkok: The rescue operation to extract the remaining four schoolboys and their soccer team coach from a cave in Thailand has begun on Tuesday. Divers and rescue workers are conducting the rescue operation in the cave located in the country’s remote north. The boys were exploring the caves on June 23 with their coach when they were trapped inside by heavy seasonal rains, CNN reported.
After they were found on July 2, officials cautioned it could take some time to get them out, but authorities decided to act with heavy rains forecast to hit the region. The cave complex is regularly flooded during the monsoon season which lasts until September or October.
