(FOX NEWS) – Rescuers in Thailand on Monday began their second attempt to free the remaining boys and their coach still trapped inside a cave, but warned that heavy rains have soaked the area and they are now in a race with “water and time.”
Thai navy SEALs said they successfully retrieved four members of the youth soccer team out from the cave where they had been trapped for more than two weeks. The boys who were removed were considered the weakest, reports said.
It was originally reported that the strongest would be extracted first.
The same divers who took part in Sunday’s rescue of four boys trapped in a flooded cave will also conduct the next operation as they know the cave conditions. The dive to rescue the boys in the Tham Luang Cave area is risky and requires divers to hold them close and dress them in scuba gear, Reuters reported.
