Divers go in to save all remaining Thai boys trapped in cave AND their coach today.
The cave evacuation effort in Thailand has entered its final stage, with rescue teams working to evacuate all of the boys and their coach at once.
The risky operation involves 19 rescue workers.
Authorities sent in the rescue teams for the third and final stage of retrieving the children trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non on Tuesday morning.
So far the two successful rescue missions have been based around a plan to bring the boys out in pairs, but now there are FIVE left.
Four boys and their football coach are waiting to make hours-long journey out of the cave complex.

“All five will be brought out at the same time today,” said head of the rescue mission Narongsak Osottanakornon Tuesday.
The final stage of the operation involves 19 rescue workers, and it would also retrieve a doctor and three Thai Navy SEALs who have stayed with the group since they were found over a week ago.
The extraction started on Sunday and eight of the children have been successfully brought out.
