CONDITIONS are “perfect” to extract the cave-trapped Thai soccer team, according to rescue official.
“Now and in the next three or four days, the conditions are perfect (for evacuation) in terms of the water, the weather and the boys’ health,” rescue operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said.
“We have to make a clear decision on what we can do.”
The development comes as Elon Musk announced a team of nine engineers would head to the Tham Luang cave to bolster rescue efforts.
The billionaire has reportedly said the government will not be charged for the services, according to the Bangkok Post.
