    No need to bash Trump...just speak the truth about him.

    That is excellent!
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Good news but there's a long way to go before they are out and safe. Hope they all make it to the surface.

    I just read of this good news. Once out, those kids are going to be sleeping with the lights on for a long time!!

    I imagine those parents have not taken a full breath in 9 days.

    Now comes the bit about getting them out. I wonder if they'll bring them out under water or drill a shaft like they did a few years ago to get a group of miners out.

    The BBC mentioned that drilling would not be an option until they surveyed the cave. But I wonder if it is possible to use ground penetrating radar or low frequency radio waves emanating from the spot in the cave where the boys are to figure out where best to drill a shaft. This is going to be interesting.

    Earlier had mentioned teaching the kids basic scuba, swimming them out. Seems fool proof...��

    Well, rescue will be tough and I am impressed with the breadth of preparation. The rescuers are simultaneously working to get the boys back to strength, teach them SCUBA, and lay in four months (!) of supplies because the rainy season is about to start.

    If the rain holds off long enough for the boys to regain strength and gain SCUBA skills necessary to navigate a very tricky swim, they will be out sooner. But the odds are very dire.

    great news! What a relief for those families.

    It's not over yet, not till the last one is out. Cave diving is not for the faint hearted in the best of circumstances and the onset of the rainy season is not good news. I haven't seen anything about water levels in the wet season, maybe because no one has been in there at that time.
    Swimming them out is almost as dangerous for the rescuers as the rescued.
    Otherwise they could be there for months our news is saying.
