The two British rescuers are believed to be Rick Stanton and John Volanthen, who arrived in Thailand early last week.

Here is the video. Everyone, of course, is very happy to see the boys have survived this ordeal and are doing ok.

Now that they have been found, the task is getting them out. The news says it could take days or even weeks, but they'll certainly be rescued.

The news says 'it could take days or even weeks' go get them out? Just get 13 scuba diving suits, run a rope/chain from where they are to the exit. Days or weeks just seems way to long.

If it was as simple as that, don't you think that's what they would do?

Watch the last two videos I posted, especially the BBC video, and it won't take you long to understand why getting them out will be no easy task.
