Each individual on the front-line can make that decision for themselves. However, no official should call it off nor should it officially be called off. Totally understandable for any or everyone involved to chose not to risk it, for what ever reason. That should not close the doors on outsiders giving it a try, or engineers working on something, or airdropping water in, or etc.
What about Chili? They had to bring in engineers from all over to draft up plans for an alternative tunnel, and then construction workers worked in shifts 24/7 non-stop in record time to get to the miners that most thought were dead. It was a miracle they all survived. Imagine if they deemed it "too dangerous" and shut down shop without considering any alternative?
