Bloody difficult situation they are in. If the plan is to scale they could drill down from the first dip on the right of where they are situated, but I'm sure they have considered that option and I guess there is a risk of collapse as well as a time issue. I just hope they find a solution soon. I think the 3 hour per boy for an exit is way off, it's taking seven or eight hours for the divers. The other option of keeping them alive for three or four months while the water level recedes before rescue also sounds worrying.

They can save 3 hours by beating to death the "adult" that led them in there. Who doesn't know not to do this????

#3 #4 Tourist stops have tour guides.Going into a cave with no experience is crazy, Going past a point that requires crawling thru a hole 1 1/2 miles in is insane, Doing it with other peoples 11 years old children is criminal. I can think of 100 things that would be forgivable. This is not one of them.

@6 He IS experienced for the trip and knows the cave that is why he took the students to the cave trip. He also is a former respected monk so he isn't reckless, shit happened at the wrong time on the trip. If you are watching the news and reading the information now, he was the first to go in and now the last to come out. Because of his action DURING the flood the they survived. This is Thailand culture and they are natives who knew the area.
You made it sound like the coach was up to something or just a snowflake exaggerating that its criminal to visit these sort of places that its reckless to go on trips.
We ain't Merica culture here.
