Hollywood is already poised to exploit Thailand cave rescue

Ekkapol Chantawong and some of the boys who come from stateless families in the border region

The system, which had pumped hundreds of millions of gallons of rainwater out of the cave over the past 18 days, gave out soon after rescuers extracted the coach and the four Thai Navy Seals who had volunteered to stay with them. It is rainy season in Thailand at the moment, with torrential downpours that appear out of nowhere dominating the weather patterns.

The eight boys who've been rescued so far have all swum out of the cave, each escorted by two expert divers. They became trapped in the cave on June 23 when a flash flood blocked the entrance. Rescue crews are anxious about the amount of air the trapped children are using, which is being drained rapidly. Authorities have said the mission could take up to four days to complete and heavy rain is forecast in the coming days.

A group of men who had been helping pump water out of the cave for the past two weeks share a meal at a restaurant in Chiang Rai while watching news of the third and final rescue.

Jesada said the first four taken out are eating well.

Eight other boys are now there recovering after being pulled out on Sunday and Monday.

Dr Richard Harris has been labelled "the best" for his work in rescuing the trapped boys.

Even as a massive operation is underway to rescue the remaining members of the Thai soccer team trapped in a flooded cave, a diver involved with the mission highlighted the risks involved in carrying out the rescue.

George Clooney Hospitalized After Scooter Accident In Italy!
Clooney broke a rib in a motorcycle accident in New Jersey in 2008, while his then-girlfriend Sarah Larson suffered a broken foot. Reports from Italian broadcaster TGR , suggest the 57-year-old Sonning resident was taken to hospital after the crash.

However, another official, Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, inspector general of the public health ministry, said initial blood tests "showed signs of infection". Each team member has to spend time in isolation for fear of spreading infection; health officials expect all of them to be in the hospital for at least a week.

Narongsak said, "We expect that if there is no unusual condition. the 4 boys, 1 coach, the doctor, and 3 SEALs who have been with the boys since first day will come out today".

Eight boys were brought out on stretchers over the first two days - four on Sunday and four on Monday.

Musk and his team of engineers at SpaceX and The Boring Co. designed and built a mini-submarine to help rescue a soccer team of 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach.

A message posted on the English Premier League club's Twitter account said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected". "I want to cheer them on, I want to tell them how anxious I've been".

Thought their harrowing ordeal scored them an invitation from Federation Internationale de Football Association to attend the World Cup final in Russia, the rescued Wild Boars soccer team will not be able to attend the match.

Officials sourced full-faced oxygen masks small enough to fit the boys, to remove the chances of them falling off during the long arduous journey through the craggy tunnels.
