A third rescue operation has begun at that flooded cave in Thailand to bring out the remaining four boys and their coach who’ve been trapped deep inside for 17 days now. The rescue mission began just after 10am local time and involves 19 divers. A Thai health-ministry official says the eight boys already rescued over the past two days are in “high spirits” and have strong immune systems. Two possibly have a lung infection, but all eight are generally “healthy and smiling.”

The U.S. is working very closely with the Government of Thailand to help get all of the children out of the cave and to safety. Very brave and talented people!
