Missing Thai Footballers: Hope Still Alive

Collection StoriaNews

Rescuers looking for 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach have discovered a hidden opening deep in the jungle that may be a new point of entry to the cave system that the group is suspected to be stranded in.

Trekkers discovered the potential access point in the Pha Mee hills above the Tham Luang Nang Non cave system and are now exploring the possibility it connects with the caves below, in which the group is thought to have been trapped for almost a week, reports CNN.

The natural chimney, which is around 1.5 meters in diameter and at least 22 meters (72 feet) deep, was found to the north of the opening of the cave, where the boy's bikes were found last Saturday.

Josh Morris, the founder of Chiang Mai Rock Climbing Adventures, who is familiar with the terrain, says that despite the ticking clock, there is reason to be optimistic about the group's survival.
