The boys trapped in a Thai cave will have to learn to dive or wait months for flooding to recede, the country’s army says.

Rescue operations are battling with rising water and are currently bringing in food and medical supplies.

The 12 boys and their football coach had been missing for nine days before they were found by divers on Monday.

An Australian cave diving expert says the operation to save 12 boys and a football coach trapped in a Thai cave is likely to take months.

Peter Wolf, the national director of the Cave Divers Association of Australia, said getting the group out any sooner was not viable given the boys could not swim.

“The best option is to leave them where they are and stabilise their environment to make sure the core ingredients are met. Given the environment is pretty wet, to keep them warm and dry, provide them with clean drinking water, food, and clean air,” Wolf said.
