How long can Thai soccer team survive without food, water while trapped?

Divers make progress in search for 12 boys soccer coach in Thailand cave

Divers make progress in search for 12 boys soccer coach in Thailand cave

The governor of Chiang Rai province, Narongsak Osatanakorn, said late Monday that all 13 have been found safe but that the days-long rescue operation isn't over, according to the Associated Press.

"We found all 13 safe. we will take care of them until they can move", Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters, who broke into spontaneous applause and cheering.

The group went missing on June 23 after they completed soccer practice. He said the children and their coach were weak when they were found and that a medic was now with them in the cave, providing medical assistance.

He says "supplying them on site may face challenges depending on how hard the dives are".

"The biggest concern is them getting desperate and trying to enter swift moving water, " he previously said.

In Thailand, the search efforts have captured the public's attention with wall-to-wall media coverage as many waited with bated breath for a positive outcome.

"In theory, human beings can last 30 days (without food)", Narongsak told reporters earlier Monday.

Ben Reymenants, a Belgian diver who is part of an worldwide contingent that had been searching for the soccer team, said he was briefed by an operation commander on the rescue.

Rescuers found the boys Monday in a section of the cave that was on higher ground.

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

For ten days they have been struggling to survive, as rescue personnel from the Thai military, local officials, the US military and foreign caving and topological experts all worked tirelessly to locate and reach the trapped soccer team (ages 11-16 and their coach, age 25).

Tim White, the Southeast regional coordinator for NCRC, said the cave's relatively warm temperature was probably one of the group's saving graces: If they were in a United States cave, with temperatures that can generally drop below 60 degrees, they could have developed fatal cases of hypothermia.

One of the boys then says: "Thank you so much".

Thai navy divers, three top British cave divers and U.S. military personnel all attempted to find the boys.

With the way out of the cave blocked by flood waters from the heavy rains, rescuers are hoping that the boys made it through to an elevated rock mound that cavers have nicknamed "Pattaya Beach" after one of Thailand's best known tourist destinations.

(Tham Luang Rescue Operation Center via AP) Rescuers make their way up at the entrance to a cave complex where 12 boys and their soccer coach went missing, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, in northern Thailand, Monday, July 2, 2018.

Doctors adept at diving have since arrived on the scene, aiming to "stabilize" the boys before the final steps of the rescue can take place, journalist Tim Newton told CNN.

"I really think we had reached the stage where people were saying "look we have to pray for a miracle, we have to hope for a miracle".
