Thai governor announces successful rescue operations

Rescue teams attempted to reach deeper into the chambers of Tham Luang cave in hope of locating the boys

"We will work all night", Osottanakorn said.

"How many of you?" one of the rescuers calls out in English, before a faint "Thirteen!" is heard in response.

In Thailand, the search has captured the public's attention with wall-to-wall media coverage as many hoped for a positive outcome.

The mothers and families of the missing boys have held prayer sessions at the entrance to the cave, where there is a shrine with a statue of the Buddha.

They still have to be extracted from the caves, and are reportedly "too week to move".

There also likely wouldn't be any living creatures native to the cave that the group could catch and eat, White said, so any food they ate would likely have been brought in with them a week ago.

He added: "If the dives are hard then supply will be hard, but the risk of trying to dive them out is also exponentially greater". The cave system is popular with tourists because of the limestone rock formations that hug its high ceilings. If it goes down through, we will be very lucky, ' the Chiang Rai governor said.

Thai rescue teams walk inside cave complex where 12 boys and their soccer coach went missing.

Navy divers and rescue workers entered a narrow passageway early on Monday after passing through a key chamber on Sunday whose high, murky waters had previously blocked their progress.

There had been no contact with the boys, aged between 11 and 16, since they went missing with their coach - aged 25 - last Saturday.

While the team has been found, they are not yet rescued - the search-and-rescue experts will want to give them medical treatment and try to drain the flooded cave chambers before getting them out.

He also said that the situation was being assessed and more rescue teams were going into the cave complex. "We believe the students [had] gone further in". On another, in red tape stuck to the metal, are the words: "Bring the Wild Boar team home".

Dive teams worked around the clock.

The dry area is several kilometers from the entrance of the cave.

As the days wore on with the group missing, distraught family members had placed fruit, desserts, sugary drinks and candies on mats near the cave as an offering to the spirits which some people believe protect the cave and the forest.

But the channels leading to this, now flooded, have proven hard for divers to navigate. Divers had to pull themselves along with rope against powerful currents in the cave's water. A rescuer answered, "Monday". There's two of us. Rescuers are now working to extract the team from the cave.

"What day is it?" one the players asks.

Some, enduring the torture of such a long, silent wait, have collapsed in the mud with exhaustion, and been sent to a hospital.

"I'm as happy as I could be in the world", she tells TIME, still manning her station at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, shortly after authorities announced that they had all been found alive. "But all I can do is wait". Depending on the conditions, someone might be able to survive for up to a week if it's not too hot and they're in the shade.

"We hope tomorrow", the British rescuer replies.
