Boys trapped in Thai cave in good health

 The release of a new video has shown that 12 boys and their football coach who were trapped in a cave in Thailand are in good health.

 In the video, they were seen smiling and at times laughing, they introduce themselves one by one.

The boys, together with their coach were found on Monday after nine days trapped deep in the cave by rising water and have since received food and medical treatment.

Rescuers say their rescue may take months as they must either be taught to dive or wait for the water to recede.

The concern is that the rainy season has only just begun, so water levels in the Tham Luang cave will almost certainly continue to rise.

Rescuers are trying to work out how best to bring them all to safety, with officials stressing they do not intend to take any risks with the boys’ safety.

At a press conference, officials said no rescue attempt would be made on Wednesday but conditions were perfect for a rehearsal.

Water continues to be pumped out of the cave complex and officials have said they are confident they have been able to stop more water getting into the chamber the boys are in.

Emergency teams are also trying to install a phone line so the group can talk to their families but attempts to do so failed on Tuesday.

Outside the cave, medics are staging rehearsals in case the group can be brought out soon.
