Thai cave rescue: First boys rescued – BBC News

At least four of a group of boys trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand for two weeks have been been brought out, say the Thai Navy Seals.

Rescuers decided to go ahead with the hazardous operation on Sunday because of fears of rising waters.

Divers are guiding the 12 boys and their coach through darkness and submerged passageways towards the mouth of the Tham Luang cave system.

They are being rescued in groups. It is unclear how long the mission will take.

Reuters news agency are reporting that six of the 12 boys trapped in the cave have now been brought out, quoting a senior member of the rescue medical team.

However, the Thai Navy Seals have only just tweeted that three of the boys are out

      You’re entitled to your own opinions, but if you want to share your opinions, then you must be open to criticism of those opinions.
      This notion that we’re being disrespectful by picking apart people’s nonsensical beliefs needs to stop.

      AWResistance I swear that was the most pointless meaningless thing you could say. Firstly lacking social skills does not mean someone is autistic, secondly you haven’t given evidence for your dumbass claim, and lastly if every atheist was autistic, it wouldn’t make any difference to how ridiculous religion is.

    • Martyn Jones says:

      Do you mean like the Christian crusaders or missionaries? The inquisitors were particularly adapt with social graces and I believe that priests often slightly apologised before setting fire to accused witches.

      Mark Doldon If you don’t believe in God, then why go so far to blasphemize God and those who did you no wrong and believe? You’re too hypocritical to feel the need to argue about a being you don’t even believe in. Such a waste of mind

    • xoxoVnGxoxo says:

      Mark Doldon It’s not God who trapped them. God gave us our free will to do whatever we want. And they decided to go into the cave. Don’t blame God for our decisions.

      why are dumb christians even allowed to use internet? believing in god is mental illness

  9. Sam Replete says:

    I know they will be rescued!!!

    • Gary says:

      Its a good start but they probably started with the boys in the best shape so things can still go bad but hopefully it will all work out.

      On the religious aspect. Courageous people risking their lives got those boys out and they should get the credit for that rather than some fairytale being.

    • BMO na says:

      G5rry Without religion people wouldn’t care to rescue others or care for others. They’ll only see it as “their loss” or “their problem” especially if it’s all the way across the world with people who look different from you. People before Christ weren’t as caring as today. It was as much as a dog eats dog world than it is today and such harsh ideas were common. It’s the mindset we are dealing with not merely just some “imaginary being” you like to regard such things you don’t understand

    • Shubham Dhingra says:

      Mel F I thank you for thanking the mortals who put their lives at risk and succeeded in this tedious task rather than thanking god like the rest of the ignorant and uneducated folks in the comment section.

    • Alan Ly says:

      Shubham Dhingra And i need to thank you for pointing out that the people who thank strangers for their heroics also need to be thanked.
      We need more people like you

    • 247addiction says:

      Exactly! Mortals! Thank G-d almighty H- allowed this to happen as H-s mercy and miracle. H- is immortal. The Alpha and Omega. H- will live forever and created this world and can take it away because H- is Gd. Take the gift of H-s salvation for we are immortals but H- gave us the chance to live forever. ❤️? Peace and Love my fellow humans.
