It’s D-Day because conditions for the rescue of the boys trapped inside Tham Luang are most favourable. Heavy rains are expected the next day. If they miss this window of opportunity, they boys may be trapped for months.
Thairath reports live on YouTube. There were no official statements for quite a while. Even journalists on the ground were guessing. At the end of this video, it was believed that 6 boys have been rescued.
First boy was expected to emerge from the cave at 2100. He emerged way ahead of schedule at 1740. The fittest boy was chosen to exit the cave first. Governor of Chiangrai announced that the operation may take up to 20 hours if conditions remain stable.
