3. Two members of AFP tactical response dive team near cave entrance
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Fitzgerald, member of Tactical Response Dive Team, Australian Federal Police:
"At this point in time, the AFP dive team has reached cave, point three, of the cave, which is approximately 1.5 kilometres in.
(Reporter, off-camera: "And that's point, isn't it, where it becomes a diver-only to get through, is that right?")
Fizgerald: "Yes, at that point in time, it's a specific dive requirement, unfortunately, based on some of our equipment, it's a challenge for us, at this point in time which we are working around."
5. Emergency workers during rescue operation
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Fitzgerald, member of Tactical Response Dive Team, Australian Federal Police:
"It's quite challenging obviously. It's zero visibility, It's confined space so it's challenging."
7. Various of rescue and emergency workers at rescue base
A member of the Australian Federal Police who are assisting Thai authorities in rescuing the 12 boys and their football coach trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand said on Thursday that rescuing the boys remained a challenge.
Matt Fitzgerald, from Australia's Federal Police tactical response dive team, told reporters despite zero visibility and confined space rescuers were working around problems.
Thai officials have said they prefer to get the boys out as soon as possible because heavy rain is expected to start by Saturday, which almost surely will raise water levels again in the cave, making passage in some areas even more difficult if not impossible.
They are hoping that an upgraded draining effort can lower the water level in an area where it is still at the ceiling or just about.
The idea is to get some headroom so the boys would not be reliant on scuba apparatus for a long stretch and could keep their heads above water.
The boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach disappeared after they went exploring in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in the northern province after a football game June 23.

the real hero cape dive expert, the british dive team, they all seldom go to talk with the press during working.
they really concentrate on the rescue operation.
some foreigner diver came to the cape as volunteer to help on the rescue operation.
but everytime when they out of the cape, they immediately go to the press and talk.
they all act like they are the key man of the operation.
wonder that actually they came to help or came to promote themselves.
News all over the world LIED . They said a tube was used. Made in Thailand. Elon M. is idea. It was reported in India and a few other places but NOT the USA.
Or DID they lie?? Cannot believe ANYTHING on the news or Utube. Made up stories
Take a look a few days ago on Utube...you will see. They showed the tube and EVERYTHING. So What IS the truth ?
lea lemon my point was three countries reported it was being used during the rescue. They showed IT and said it WAS being used. They flat out lied or did America's news LIE? Were you THERE in the rescue? I'm trying to get to the actual TRUTH. Thanks for responding.
Splash Family yeah that is why they dont use it furthermore it is cave has curves not suitabe for that tube which is ain’t flexible . there is a video they just a canvas and the kids was sedative and one diver attached to the kid as well, and other divers brought both of them together .
I'm from neighbour country to Thailand. There has been too much, unpredictable, unexpected heavy rain throughout the south east and east Asian region at this time of the year. shockingly there was flooding in Mumbai, India and Pakistan last week or so. Now bad flooding in western Japan. Typhoon in TaiwN a few days ago and expected to hit China today or in a few days. We are all have been taken by surprise by so much rain.
maybe climate change or global warming?
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
