more ends up at the moment that border stays closed but the number of refugees arriving here keeps getting higher higher and. rescuers in thailand are working on how to extract a young football team and their coach who trapped deep inside a cave the thirteen strong group has been there for ten days now and while they're in resume good health heavy rain is forecast that could make the flooding inside the cave even worse scott hyder is at the site. i'm. at first glance the crowd in busy center for the rescue effort looks like it has for more than a week the good news that the boys were found by two british divers on monday night means only half of the job here is done.
1:07 am
that second half of the job will be very difficult getting them all out safely with family members are already thinking of what they'll do once they are out when up the road he won't seek john heard the good news all she wanted to do was hug her nephew but oh my god i hope all of them come out safely not only my nephew everyone who's stuck in the cave divers and doctors are now going back and forth to the boys and the football coach who found refuge on a ledge when the cave flooded following to rancho rain the divers are checking on the house and taking them food and water they're said to be in good health with only slight injuries but there are mason the group is four hundred meters further into the cave system than the so-called potty a beach section where rescuers originally thought they might be. getting them out isn't expected to be easy reaching them requires a technically difficult and dangerous dive through narrow passages and low visibility and the trapped teenagers will have to be quickly trained to use scuba
1:08 am
equipment so they can swim out a day after the boys and their coats were found all eyes are focused here and that's for two reasons this is where the dive teams are headquartered but also this is most likely where the thirteen will exit the cave and be loaded into ambulances when they will see daylight for the first time is difficult to predict rescue teams are pumping water out of the cave and continue their search for another escape route because of the difficult conditions for rescuers both in and outside the cave like the search operation the rescue is expected to be slow going scott harder al-jazeera. when you say has more now seen the cave rescue. so far there is no indication that the procedure to try to bring the thirteen people out of the cave has begun the local administration here in chiang rai province that is leading this operation is saying that it wants to stop that procedure as soon as possible it's saying that could mean immediately that could be in a week it could be
1:09 am
a month but they cannot commit to a particular time frame because it is such a changeable situation and there are a few reasons for that they want to guarantee that it is as safe as possible before they stop their procedure of bringing them out they want to make sure that the thirteen the boys and their football coach are as healthy as possible and as strong as possible to begin what will be a very long possibly slow and certainly dangerous trip out of the cave to try to build up their strength their navy personnel in there with them around the clock also medical staff giving them some basic food supplies giving them other medical attention but so far all indications are from those rescue personnel who are with the thirteen at the moment they seem to be in amazingly good health and good spirits considering the ordeal that they have been through and the ordeal they continue to go through malaysia's former prime minister najib razak has issued an
