Search and rescue team, NAVY divers have resumed their search for a young football team who have been trapped inside a flooded cave in northern Thailand for five days now.

Hundreds of people have been mobilised to find the boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach who went into the cave in the northern Chiang Rai province.

The boys’ bicycles and soccer boots were found at the mouth of the Tham Luang caves, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, after they went missing late on Saturday.

They were believed to have been trapped by rising waters inside the cave network when heavy rain hit.

Members of a navy “seal” unit including a team of divers, are searching the cave system.

“The team went down to a depth of 5 metres (16 feet) and found a large chamber ... but we’ve found no trace of the children,” the navy unit said.

They were trapped when heavy rains are believed to have flooded the Tham Luang Nang Non cave's main entrance.

Meanwhile, their anxious parents and relatives camped out at the cave near the border with Myanmar and Laos praying for the children's safe return.

Shouldn't they be using aerial and ground heat sensors to detect their heat signatures?

God, I rebuke tragedy. I pray they come out alive.

Seriously, am I the only one who is tired of bad news filling Nairaland frontpage?

I blame Buhari.

Rescue workers are seen inside and outside of the Tham Luang caves.




A navy commander overseeing the search said he was hopeful the 12 twelve boys and their 20-year-old coach would be rescued.

“I believe they’re all still alive but they might be exhausted ... we should get good news today,” Rear Admiral Arparkorn Yookongkaew told Reuters.

People wanting to explore the cave are meant to get permission.

Thailand is in the middle of its rainy season when caves can get flooded or submerged.

The boys and their coach entered the cave after training on Saturday.

They may have been cut off by rising flood water in the cave, officials said.

Navy SEAL divers equipped with oxygen tanks and food rations entered the cave early on Tuesday, where light rains continued to fall.

'Our team in the area went inside the cave early morning and will continue to walk to the cave's end,' Thai Navy SEAL said on its Facebook page.

Tham Luang Nang Non is a cave complex in the Doi Nang Non range.

It is a very long cave system with branches that go on for several kilometres.



Divers said they spotted footprints in one of the Tham Luang Nang Non cave's chambers.

U.S. and U.K. joined the search.



A U.S. military team and British cave experts joined the rescue effort in northern Thailand for 12 boys and their soccer coach missing for five days inside a cave being flooded by near-constant rains.

A Thai army general coordinating the rescue said Thursday morning that overnight rain had raised water levels again and authorities switched off power and water pumps for fear of electrical hazards.

Rescue of Thai soccer team trapped in cave complicated by heavy rains.

ping water out of the cave during the rescue operation at the Tham Luang cave in in Chiang Rai province, Thailand, on June 27, 2018.

Muddy water rising to the ceiling of one of the chambers has prevented Thai navy SEAL divers from progressing farther into the cave to where they think the 12 schoolboys and their coach, who went missing Saturday, may be sheltering.

There has been no contact with the group since they entered the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai province.

What kind of coach is this? Was he suicidal or had other intentions. I don’t see why he would take these kids so deep into a cave... really irresponsible.
