Four of the trapped Thai boys soccer team have been 'dived' out.

They are now restocking air supplies and organizing another dive, but it will take time.

Keep praying.

Updated, amazing and wonderful

Looks like there are now 8 boys rescued.


This would make a great TV movie in America. It has danger and intrigue and a daring escape.

Unfortunately, they're a bunch of Asians, so forget that.

They made a movie about the rescue of the Chilean miners, so I wouldn't be surprised if a movie is made about this.

Not to mention tragedy to highlight the danger. One of the Thai SEAL members assisting the rescue died. --Bob

I sure hope that the remaining boys and their coach make it out safely also. I agree with ear that this will probably make a compelling movie sometime in the future.

From CNN:

Quote:
JUST IN: An eleventh boy has been rescued from the Thai cave, according to an eyewitness who is part of the rescue operations. One boy and his coach remain inside.
