12 boys and their soccer coach who went missing in flooded caves in Thailand nine days ago have been found alive — but freeing them will be a difficult task. Video shared by the Thai Navy SEALs shows the boys, found by British divers in the early hours of Monday evening, huddled together on a small patch of dry ground, surrounded by water in a cramped, pitch-black chamber. The area in which the group remains stranded is only accessible via a narrow, flooded channel, and attempts to pump water from the cave, or find a natural opening in the roof of the chamber, have so far proved unsuccessful. Thai authorities say they will now supply the group with four months’ worth of food and begin teaching the boys how to scuba dive. This has been interpreted as a sign that the rescue operation may only begin after the rainy season ends in October.
