Thai cave rescue sees four more boys freed

More good news arrived Monday from the ongoing rescue of 12 boys and a coach from a youth soccer team trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand for 17 days.

A witness near the cave told the Reuters news agency that medical workers carried four people to emergency rescue vehicles.

Family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass isolation barrier, and Mr Jesada said doctors may let the boys walk around their beds on Tuesday.

That leaves four boys and the 25-year-old coach of the Wild Boar soccer team still trapped in the cave with rescuers planning to resume efforts Tuesday. Four boys and their coach remain in the cave, but it's unclear if authorities will try to extract them in a group of four or try to take the five out in a single mission.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.

Writing in elegant Thai script, the boys urged their parents not to worry, adding that they hoped they wouldn't get too much homework after being rescued and couldn't wait to eat their favorite foods again.

Mr Musk said the sub's aluminium shell has four ports on the front and rear to connect to oxygen tanks and weighs about 90 pounds. No boys would be discharged for at least seven days.

The rescue missions take almost half a day to complete.


It was the third consecutive day of rescues during a break in the seasonal rains that have lashed northern Thailand and set off flash floods that left the 12 players and their coach stranded inside the caverns more than two weeks ago. Two have been treated for minor lung infections, doctors added.

Four of the boys were safely rescued on Sunday after rescuers carried out a risky operation, amid fears the waters will rise again to a unsafe level.

Osatanakorn said officials did not want to waste time because of intensifying rain that could halt rescue efforts.

Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osattanakorn said the second phase began at 11 a.m. and authorities "hope to hear good news in the next few hours".

The boys, who got stuck inside the cave when it flooded June 23, survived until they were found nine days later only by drinking water that dripped off the stalactites hanging above them.

19 divers entered the cave at 10.08am today, with more divers to enter gradually throughout the day 6.19pm: The rescued boys are undergoing further tests, and have been kept away from TVs in order to not affect their mental health, the Guardian reports. Monday evening, he described the divers as "more confident" and able to work faster. Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha was scheduled to make a second visit to the scene late on Monday and the president of soccer's governing body, FIFA, Gianni Infantino, today invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday if they make it out of the cave in time.

That sense of accomplishment was also reflected in the message posted Monday night on the Thai Navy Seals' Facebook page announcing the latest rescues.
