It would be reasonable, albeit tragic, to conceded that they aren't coming out :'(

I reckon tunnel from above is safest for the lads even if it takes a fortnight to do it

They could send this Uruguay team down after them. Excellent divers.

The media actually quoted the case of the Seal diver who went to the cave first with supplies setting off at 0500 and arriving at 1100; so 6 hours.

So with the death that has sadly happened, it emphasis how difficult ( impossible??) it will be to get the boys out using this route. :(

As I said earlier there is equipment that can bore through from above albeit maybe too hard to get it there or maybe the distance to drill maybe too deep. Havenít heard anybody mention this on the news but time is running out and itís going to get harder as time goes on weather is against them.

Yes the BBC reported that a "hole" was being dug, and they had got 400 metres down, but they needed get to 600 mtrs.  What all that meant I don't know and it has not been mentioned again ;)

Just found this on the BBC website:

Meanwhile, rescuers outside the cave have dug more than 100 holes in an attempt to reach the cave by a direct route. There were 18 promising ones, the deepest at 400m, but Mr Narongsak said he was not sure if it would reach the boys, who are believed to be about 600m below the surface.

Full details with diagram:

Water levels have reportedly been lowered to nearly enough to make it a do-able proposition to get them out that way,however more rain is forecast for the area today which could take things back to square one.Meanwhile oxygen levels have been increased in the cave by the divers taking in tanks of it and communications cabling is being taken in so direct contact can be made both by the rescue team and families with the kids.Fingers[and everything else crossed here that a successful outcome can be and is achieved.

They've started trying to move them out. I sincerely hope it is a successful operation.

The big worry was the return of the rain re-filling the cave system and undoing all the work they've done pumping it out.They've built dams to try holding/diverting the rain water away from re-flooding the cave and as forecast/expected the rain has returned.It seems a race against time/the elements to get them out.Hopefully success will crown their endeavours.
