THE cave rescue in Thailand is a remarkable tale.

A group of 12 boys and their coach were trapped inside a Thai cave on Monday June 23.

At the time of writing, seven boys had been rescued from the cave.

It is an amazing tale of how even when it appears that all hope is lost, miracles can happen.

The most experienced cave rescue team ever assembled filed into the black mouth of the cave to rescue the children.

Divers are having to navigate 2.5 miles of dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, as well as oxygen-depleted air and no amount of training can prepare you for it.

The work that they are doing is nothing short of phenomenal, in very tough conditions.

The narrow, submerged passageways posed dangers to even the most experienced cave divers - some of the boys are as young as 11 and weak swimmers.

The governor supervising the mission said earlier that mild weather and falling water levels over the last few days had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation that won't last if it rains again.

It is also a concern how much of an effect it will have on the lives of those who have been rescued.

It is impossible to imagine the nerves of people that are involved in the rescue missions, the families and of course the children being recovered.

It is thought that the rescue could be one of the most amazing in history, comparable to the Chilean miners being taken to safety.

The divers are risking their lives to recover the children and their coach from the cave and I can only hope that all make a full recovery from it.

The rescue attempt has received help from various different countries and it is amazing how everyone comes together in times of crisis.

American president Donald Trump issued a tweet in support of the mission whilst seven British divers are involved in the rescue.

Ninety divers took part in the rescue.

The two British divers who found the boys last Monday are part of a three-man team from the British Cave Rescue Council (BCRC).

They have been identified as John Volanthen, 47, and Rick Stanton, 56.
