Prayers for trapped Thai boys

The Pope also turned his thoughts to a group of young boys who have been trapped in an underground cave in Thailand for over a week and said he is praying for them. Rescue searchers trying to reach the 12 boys, aged 12 to 16, and their soccer coach in a flooded cave complex are reportedly using huge pumps to reduce the water level, allowing divers to place guide ropes and oxygen tanks along the route. Sunday’s effort marks the first significant progress in several days in a massive attempt to reach the group that has been missing in the cave complex in northern Thailand for eight days. Rising floodwaters in the cave had stalled the search-and-rescue operation. Source

Rear Admiral Somnuk Prempramote, commander of the Royal Navy Thai Navy Region 3, said: "Right now we are still looking for 49 people. We have helped 48 people from the capsized boat. "We have sent boats to help. They were all wearing life jackets." Source
