A team of Chinese emergency responders, jointly working with a global rescue team, are working around-the-clock to rescue the trapped 12 boys and their coach.

The six Chinese rescuers are specialists in cave rescues and brought with them special equipment for the mission.

” We sent professional cave divers, cave probers and submersible operators. The team went there with around 400 kilograms of gears, including cave diving equipment and submersible,” 
Wang Ke, Chairman, Pinglan Public Welfare Foundation said.

Each of the Chinese rescuers has multiple tasks during the operation, working in shifts to aid other rescuers non-stop..

The Chinese team will be participating in the rescue work until the 13 trapped people are moved out of the cave.
