    They are hoping for the first boy to be out by 10am!
    It was now or never, with monsoon rains coming. The water in chambers 1,2 and 3 is low enough right now to walk through.

    Prayers for all!

    Taking the weakest kids out first. I was wondering how they were going to decide the pecking order. Im assuming not only do they need more medical attention, but they would also put up less of a fight and that leaves the other kids to get a bit weaker before they make the journey. Biggest challenge is panic.

    Good points. Also, if they have to delay the operation due to conditions, the stronger kids would have a better chance to continue to survive.

    "Only four of the 12 boys were able to be extracted alive from the Tham Luang cave network in the Chiang Rai province."

    I also understood that they extracted those in the best condition, not the weakest. Next round should begin here in a few hours.

    Also, Elon Musk has jisbteam testing an “escape pod” to be used in the rescue.

    Crazy how the news comes out so differently with everyone trying to get the scoop. the story I saw did say the area around the rescue site was closed to reporters. Live coverage had switched to the hospital.
