    When the first one makes it out safely, it will be GREAT to show the others that he did it. It can help the rest relax as they wait their turn.

    This may have already been posted before, but I don't recall reading this part:
    Thailand cave rescue: Trapped boys to be rescued in stages depending on their health

    That's great to hear, but I suppose it still won't be enough against the coming rains, unfortunately. However, since they've been pumpimg more water out this whole time, as well as having blocked two previous inflows, perhaps things are a bit better for getting them all out now.
    Wouldn't that be lovely...

    I was thinking audio hallucinations too - but then again maybe not, if all of them heard the same sounds at the same time...?

    This lifted my heart.

    "In all of the videos, the boys appeared in good spirits. In the most recent video, a navy SEAL is shown treating minor cuts on the feet and legs of the boys with antibiotic ointment. Several of the boys are seen smiling as they interact with the navy SEAL, who cracks jokes."

    Exactly. I was just thinking, for the past 5 days or so they had been saying water levels were dropping by 1cm/hour. That would be roughly 1.20m, about 4 ft. And there wasn't much rain in the past few days, plus they were able to block some inflow ... so maybe conditions are less precarious right now and they decided, let's do it now before the rains start again.

    Hoping and praying!

    Hypothetical question. Say the first boy gets out fine, but then on the second something goes wrong. You can get what I am saying. Do they continue to carry out extraction?

    While we're waiting on Pins and Needles I thought you might
    want to read about Full Face Masks for diving. Some even have
    microphones for communicating with each other. These
    masks are new to me also since I got certified for diving many years back in the Stone Age
    and I don't think they were even available then.

    BBM - would those work in a cave with no line of site and twisty rock tunnels?

    The rescuers will do the best they can for all the victims. Some may be weaker and not as healthy overall. I'd think it's like
    during a fire, not all victims make it out alive but the firefighters
    keep trying even if some don't make it.

    Interesting article, thank you. It would be wonderful if they had verbal communication. I think it would be more reassuring that simple touch.

    Another advantage ~ the full face masks would keep water off the boy's faces. New divers often feel claustrophobic with water on their faces, never mind dirty dark water.

    I don't know. I have never used one; they are quite expensive.

    So many variables... if they lose one of the boys, I think they will continue. If the boy and both divers are lost, i think they would stop and reassess before putting any more rescuers in danger.
    If something goes wrong in in one of the really narrow spots, ugh... it could block the passage...

    I am deepful grateful to see so much good in the world!

    This is heartlifting and brings tears to my eyes thinking of the courage and incredible compassion of those who are risking their lives to save these precious boys.

    Everyone involved in this rescue mission, regardless of their role, is magnificent.
