Unhappy Kids stuck in cave may have to wait until October to get out.

Imagine being stuck 3 miles underground, pitch black, trapped by water and passages small enough for only 1 person to squeeze through?

I cannot imagine the world of anxiety I would be experiencing.

The teacher who led them down there could possibly hold the world's dumbest title.

Two doctors volunteer to STAY with children trapped in Thai cave for FOUR MONTHS if floodwaters cut them off and make rescue attempts impossible, as divers prepare to take pork and rice to survivors
• Twelve Thai boys aged 11-16 and football coach were lost in Thamg Luang cave in Chiang Rai for nine days
• All of the group were miraculously found starving but alive by two British volunteer cave divers on Monday
• Family members who feared their kids were dead rejoiced as they heard confirmation they'd been found alive
• Experts said boys may have to wait for months for water levels to subside because they can't swim or dive
• But there are fears of rain fall in the coming days meaning they may have to learn to dive and swim through narrow gaps themselves

But why can't the divers have an extra breathing device and swim them out one by one?

That’s just reckless by the coach. Prayers for the boys. Hope they find a way

Scuba diving is crazy complicated than Baywatch/Abyss makes it look

I had to take an insane 5 hr training course just to go 50 feet deep for 30 min with a guide and others

Like skydiving or getting a small engine pilot license, it takes insane hours of training to be able to venture out alone

That's why the experts can swim them out.

It's black sludge from floods, not visible water. With pockets off air holes and then caves of darkness for hundreds of yards. You can't just rope guide one at a time along with a spare O2 tank

These divers were lucky to find them, the 2 alone went on a death mission

You would have to teach each kid how to scuba dive and the course on this cave is difficult even for experienced divers. There are tight areas. I would try to get them out the sooner the better. I would not want to take a chance hoping that it doesn't rain too much...that would be certain death. Feed them let them regain their strength and teach them rudimentary diving. Take them out one at a time. When your life is on the line you will do what it takes.

They'll make a movie about this in a few years.
