    Direct quote from the article on CNN.
    They only attempted to get four out today, going for more after air tanks positioned in the cave are replaced. It's not like they got 4 and the rest didn't make and died, which may or may not be what you meant but that's how your post seemed to read.

    8/12 out, my understanding is they took the strongest out first. They’re almost there, so much momentum and now experience. Bring them home men!

    Elon Musk (Tesla) sent over a small child-sized submarine to Thailand. Its unknown if its being used but what a guy. Check out the video on his Twitter.

    I heard on the radio this morning it takes approx. five hours to get each kid out. That's a crazy journey, I can't imagine.

    Yep. It is about an 11 hour round trip for a diver.

    Glad to hear this. I was a little worried when I saw hoops5 post this morning that they had retrieved a 5th and not more knowing the time difference.

    I guess now they refill tanks and set them up along the way? Hoping they can get the last 4 and the coach out tomorrow.

    At least the remaining 5 can live on hope, as they watch their comrades getting rescued. I would think that they are also receiving supplies with each return trip.

    Yeah I would imagine they took supplies down before they actually started pulling them out, and continue to take some down as they go.
