Drill to evacuate survivors from Tham Luang begins

Rescue teams have begun a simulation drill to evacuate survivors from Tham Luang cave to a district hospital nearby in Chiang Rai.

Ambulances are seen rushing patients one by one to Mae Sai district hospital, w
atched by an army of journalists and camermen. Authorities have prepared 3 ambulances for the drill. Helicopters are also being employed for emergency. Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn said Friday that the drill would involve officials in different fields. Each of the ambulances is manned with doctors and nurses in a drill to simulate a situation in which all the missing 13 are rescued out of the cave.

“Do not get excited, we will just simulate a situation about delivering patients to the hospital if the media and the public see many helicopters and ambulances in front of the cave,” said the governor.
