It was after the rising water blocked the way that they got stuck in the cave. According to the authority, the path into the cave is as wide as a single person.

 

Thailand National Park authority Kamolchai Kotcha said, "We have been working almost 24 hours but there are many limitations, the caves are pitch dark and very low level of oxygen in some areas, and scattering rains just made our task more difficult."
