Rescuers in Thailand are racing against the weather to free 12 boys and their football coach trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand.
 
Heavy rains are expected to hit in a matter of days and could see water levels rise, threatening the area where the group has taken refuge.
 
The region of Chiang Rai has for the past few days experienced a brief window of dry weather.
 
Rescuers are now considering how best to bring the group to safety.
 
"We are racing against time before we found them," Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn said at a press conference this morning. "Now we are racing against water."
 
He said Thai Navy Seals were assessing the possibility of floating the boys out in life jackets
 
Narongsak also said telephone lines were being installed in the cave, though they have yet to reach the boys so they can talk to their families.
 
A new phone is being taken into the cave after a previous device fell into the water and stopped working.
