    Aye, British techs for UKCR. An amazing piece of good news. Hopefully they can extract them safely.

    Amazing, first I've heard of it and I'm delighted. I was pretty sure the worst had happened, well done all.

    Great news :okay:
     
  6. Hope someone's been recording the highlights of the World Cup for them
     
  7. Shhh! No spoilers!
     
  8. Football? Haven't the poor bastards been through enough?
     
  9. On a serious note, they've still got to get them out. I can't imagine how it must have felt to see two cavers turn up only to be left alone again while they went back to get more help.

    If they can divers there with Comms they can get food, air, blankets and all sorts.

    The debate at the moment appears to be whether to train the boys to scuba dive out or let the water recede which could take weeks - even months have been mentioned.

    I have seen 4 months being quoted as the possible length of time it will take for the water levels to drop sufficiently to walk out.

    The Peruvian miners were rescued by drilling an escape shaft, not sure how practical that is.
