cave rescue expert: "we can't just give them food. they have to be reintroduced to food very carefully, because just providing them with food unto itself could kill them through something we call the re- feeding syndrome for people who have been without food for an extended period of time." their physical condition -- as a result of that lack of food -- makes an immediate rescue less likely.the boys and their coach are about one- and-a-quarter miles deep inside the cave, about half-a- mile below the surface. the way to the exit is through tight, flooded channels through water that is -- in some areas -- muddy and fast-moving.anmar mirza, cave rescue expert: "cave diving is an incredibly dangerous activity for people who are very experienced doing it, and now you're looking at taking ople who have no experience -- or very little experience -- with diving and putting them into a complete blackout situation, where they have to rely on the regulator and the tanks with them to breathe, and losing that regulator even for a minute or two could be fatal."crews could dig a new entrance -- but that, itself, is a months-long process that creates its own dangers.for now, the boys are safe. but it's the start of the rainy season in thailand, and heavy rains could cause water levels in rise.i'm andrew spencer, reporting still ahead at 8 a bear takes over happy hour

his stomach. it's an annual 4th of july tradition. the nathan's famous hot dog eating contest at coney island. chestnut..going for his 11th championship...and he was chowing down. in 10- minutes, he wolfed down 74-hot dogs... a new world record which surpasses his old mark of 73. he wins 10-thousand dollars...far less than the 22,000 calories he consumed. he says the fans are key to keeping him chewing. "i'm so lucky. and the crowd is so good to me. they're not going to let me get lazy. they're going to push me even if i'm full. they're going to make me win." finally, july 4th is a very special day in warriors history. today marks the 2-year anniversary of kevin durant's announcement to join golden state. and now we can celebrate another superstar addition. congratulations to steph and ayesha curry on welcoming a baby boy. meet canon jack curry...brother of ryan and riley. the couple posted
