U.K. Cave Divers Helping Search For Thai Kids Stuck In Cave System


Three veteran British cave divers are in Thailand lending their expertise to a rescue operation attempting to find a group of teenage soccer players and their coach stuck in a cave.

The kids have been trapped in the Tham Luang cave since last Saturday. John Volanthen, Rob Harper and Rick Stanton are helping rescuers, which include Thai and U.S. military personnel.

Whether the boys are still alive in the cave — whose exit was cut off due to rising flood waters — isn’t known yet.
