Thai cave rescue operation: Eight of the boys soccer team rescued from Tham Luang cave in Thailand, will resume again tonight – live updates – CBS News

The head of the rescue mission says their plan is based on bringing four people out each day

Rescuers have been taking the strongest boys out first. It may seem counterintuitive, but the reasoning for that was that officials want the boys who have the best chance of surviving to get through the escape route first.

The boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach became stranded when they went exploring inside after a practice game. Monsoon flooding blocked off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for almost 10 days.
