    This is such a roller coaster. Just read that the face mask is too big for one of the little guy’s so they have to find another that will fit. For now they are mostly focusing on draining the water. Also the current isn’t safe enough for them to practice diving. It’s still too strong.

    Trapped Thai Soccer Team Sends a Message From the Cave

    I disagree with the Time writer. They look skinny but I don't think they look frail. They look to be tired and dirty, but in very good shape under the circumstances. They will eat and regain the strength needed to get out. JMO.

    Thai kids are skinny, unless they are city kids and into the all pervading junk food.

    Yes, I agree. they look like typical sized boys from that part of the world. They appear healthy IMO.

    Luckily, they are all soccer players. So they are in good shape and have strong leg muscles and some endurance and lung strength. Boys that age are very resilient, athletic and quick learners. I think they will be able to do what is needed, with the help of their Seal team.

    In my experience that is very unusual. Once the wet season starts it usually rains heavily at least once a day for a few hours. But it is incredible rain, and if you get caught in it you will be wet through, even your underwear will dripping wet.

    Boys that age are always hungry and Thais are grazers. They eat all day long, but Thai food is healthy, rice, lots of veg and a little bit of pork or chicken.

    I wonder if the videos we are getting are delayed by several hours due to having to be sent back through the tunnels before uploading? Earlier today we heard they were being sent pork and rice. Perhaps these videos were taken before the food arrived? I hope they have eaten more than energy gel by now!

    I suppose that there is a limit to how much can be taken in and out, considering how long it takes to get there. They would have polished that off, quickly.

    They were sending in 4 months supply of food. Hopefully it is there already, in case the cave gets cut off from sudden rain.
