    Yes, I understand what you mean. Those are severe concerns. I hope if it comes to it an organization with experience, maybe NASA, will provide technology for dealing with human waste, refuse, etc. -- and hope this technology is on standby.

    At a time like this I wish we had the technology of something like inflatable small shark tanks with hatches to get out, to keep them floating above water and the sides to keep from them getting cut from the rock.

    If they had decided to wait out the months.

    My poor little mind is going a million miles an hour.

    Plus there's no certainty that during the monsoon months, that all areas won't flood entirely. :(

    Waiting on a new miracle... hoping they can locate another opening towards where the boys are.



    Thailand cave rescue: Search teams unsure how to free trapped boys - CNN

    "During an attempted rescue mission last week, trekkers found a hidden opening deep in the jungle, giving them another way to enter the cave system. The natural chimney was at least 1.5 meters in diameter and at least 22 meters (72 feet) deep."

    "Though the opening did not connect to the area where the boys were discovered, now that the exact location is known, rescue efforts can focus on finding other, potentially hidden openings."

    Well they do have one man submarines but I don't think they're
    very flexible to bend around all the crevasses.

    I'm worried like you and I've been scuba diving many many times
    but the odds were in my favor- clear water, my fitness, not in
    a confined cave, a strong swimmer and completed a months
    long course on diving. even I feel clautophobic thinking
    about the conditions in that cave.

    Thanks so much, Enelram, for sharing your scuba diving knowledge, and your perspective on this.

    That's what the former US Navy Seal said in the earlier link.
    what you just posted.
    Surely someone around the world has seen this news and could
    offer some assistance with this type pump.
    I'm guessing everyone involved so far is volunteering their time
    and efforts and maybe thailand cannot afford the expense of
    these pumps.

    Dear Wyle_E_Coyote,

    This is brilliant!

    A few fighter jets could fly some in.

    Who knows what they are contemplating by the minute?

    Wylie, you should try and email some of the officials involved
    in this recovery. Show them your information.
    We could all jump in and help get the email addresses for you
    if you want. ??? What say you?

    When they say NONE of them know how to swim, I wonder if that includes the coach.

    Again with the Chilean miners, it took 69 days to get them out. They would have to drill even deeper to get these kids out. They don't have that much time in this case.

    Well... at least it's an improvement from 4 months. There's that.
