Boys receiving food, medical care inside cave in northern Thailand

Boys receiving food, medical care inside cave
The Thai boys found alive in a cave in northern Thailand are receiving food and medical attention, the governor of Chiang Rai province confirmed to EFE Tuesday.

Medics have been sent into Tham Luang cave to give care to the 12 boys and their 26-year-old soccer coach, governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said.

However, as the group is trapped deep inside the cave, parts of which are flooded, it is not yet known when they could be taken out.

"We cannot expect how many days it will take," Narongsak said.

They were found Monday by a group of British divers and Thai Navy Seals.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16 years, and their coach were missing inside the cave for 10 days, after they were known to have entered the cave in Khun Nam Nang Non National Park on Jun. 23.

A massive search operation was launched that involved more than 1,300 personnel including members of the Thai military and experts from Britain, the United States, Japan, China and Australia, among others.

Technical teams used 20 pumps to lower water levels inside the cave, which has been flooded after recent heavy rains.
