Thai rescue team had rescued a Buddhist monk from a flooded cave in Thailand’s Phitsanulok province after four days he went inside to meditate Saturday.An unseasonal rainstorm started on Sunday and caused water levels to rise and flood the cave.

A team of 17 divers from a local rescue unit helped to rescue the monk out to safety on Wednesday.

The monks name is Phra Ajarn Manas, and he is 46 now and makes a pilgrimage to the Phra Sai Ngam cave each year. But because he did not return after the heavy rain, residents in the area alerted authorities.
