Thailand cave rescue: ‘Everybody will be out TODAY’ Eleventh person rescued

Tech inventor Elon Musk has developed a "tiny, kid-size submarine" that could help rescue the four boys and their soccer coach who remain trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand.

The father of Richard Harris, a key member of the team of global experts involved in the dramatic rescue mission, died soon after all the boys were freed.

FOUR more boys have been brought out of a flooded cave in northern Thailand as the daring rescue operation ended for the second day. They spent nine days in darkness until two British divers found them, before their drawn-out rescue that captivated global attention.

All 12 members of a youth football team, along with their 25-year-old coach, have now been rescued from the Tham Luang cave in Thailand's Chiang Rai Province. "All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Thai navy SEALs team, which is helping to lead the operation, said on its Facebook page.

Jesada Chokdumrongsuk said that the boys are "healthy and smiling", he added: "the kids are footballers so they have high immune systems".

Graphics explaining how the divers managed to rescue the four boys have been circulating on social media.

Officials said they were thankful to Musk for his help but said there was no chance of using the mini sub to rescue the remaining boys.


When asked about his first reaction as he saw the first set of boys who were rescued he admitted that he was "very scared".

While the boys are in good health, two may have mild lung infection.

"Everyone is in a good mental state", he said but added psychologists will work with them.

The boys can all eat bland foods, but they can't eat anything spicy.

Narongsak Osot-tanakorn, Former Governor of Chiang Rai who heads the rescue operation, said divers hope to rescue the last four boys and their coach from the cave Tuesday. Some players and an assistant coach were exploring the caves when heavy rains flooded parts of the vast cave, trapping them more than two miles from the entrance. We've started giving them "medical food" this morning.

Four were rescued on Sunday and another four were rescued in a faster operation on Monday, after two weeks trapped in the cave complex in north-western Thailand. It is now unclear whether Musk or his technology will be used in the rescue efforts, but Musk confirmed via tweet that the submarine is in Thailand and ready to be used if needed.

Some family members have been allowed to visit the boys in hospital, but are only allowed to observe them from behind a glass window. "Leaving here in case it may be useful in the future", he tweeted Monday.
