Governor confirms searchers headed for key cave area

Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osottanakorn on Monday morning confirmed that Navy SEALs and other divers had reached the T-junction inside Tham Luang Cave and would turn left and press on towards the area dubbed “Pattaya Beach” where the lost football squad are believed to be trapped.

 

He said other divers would begin searching towards the right if there was adequate manpower.

The divers had 600 full oxygen tanks so they can continue searching without having to retrace their route for more, he said.

Narongsak said a forward command post had been set up in Chamber 3 of the cave, with electricity and communication systems.

Monday’s plan was to search left of the T-junction, to the right if there was enough manpower, and to continue draining floodwater from the cave, he said.

Narongsak urged everyone supporting the search and rescue operation to register for an access card and heed his commands to ensure the mission proceeds safely and efficiently.
