Rescuers are considering how best to bring to safety a group of boys trapped in a flooded cave network in Thailand.

The 12 boys and their football coach were found alive on Monday and have received medical treatment and food.

Divers reached them nine days after they entered the caves in the north of the country and became trapped by rising waters caused by heavy rainfall.

More heavy rain could see water levels rise and threaten the air pocket where the group has taken refuge, according to the BBC and CNN.

Part of the concern about attempting to bring the boys out of the cramped, pitch-black chamber where they have spent the better part of nine days is that they are around 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) inside the cave, and nearly a kilometer below the surface, according to rescuers.

The boys, who were found alive by British divers in the early hours of Monday morning, are now being tended to by seven Thai Navy Seals, including a doctor and nurse, Thai Navy Seal Chief Rear Adm. Aphakorn Yoo-kongkaew told reporters at a news conference late Tuesday.
