Chiang Rai: The rescue team has resumed operations to save the lives of last five members of the Wild Boars soccer team, who are trapped in a vast cave in northern Thailand.
Time and heavy rainfall were the largest hindrances in the rescue operations. Continuous rain has been flooding the tunnels making the entire operation difficult to carry out.
Out of 13 team members, eight have been rescued so far from the Tham Luang cave, while five still remain trapped.
A crack team of foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALS rescued four boys on Sunday and another four on Monday, who were stranded in the cave for more than two weeks.
The footballers, aged between 11 and 16 years, were found by British divers on late Monday night, with footage showing them visibly weak and huddled on a mud mound deep inside the Tham Luang cave.
