4 more boys brought out of flooded Thai cave

Rescue Operation To Save The Thai Football Team Is Underway

Narongsak said Saturday that experts told him water from new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are sheltering to just 10 square meters (108 square feet). Still, they were undergoing medical checks in a hospital and were not yet allowed close contact with relatives due to fear of infections, who were able to see them through a glass partition.

Expert divers on Sunday managed to get four of the 12 boys to safety.

Rescue operations were stopped Sunday evening post the rescue of four boys to replace air tanks and supplies, and it resumed Monday morning. He is still believed to be one of the nine inside the cave.

Rescuers have suggested that it may take up to two days for the rescue to be completed, with each boy being brought out individually. Two divers are helping each one make his way through very narrow tunnels that twist and turn, and filled with dark muddy water.

The death on Friday of a former Thai navy Seal, Saman Gunan, underlined the risks.

For more than two weeks, people in this community have been through an emotional whirlwind that began when the soccer team didn't return from an after-practice outing to the cave on June 23.

The operation began at 10 a.m. and he said it would take at least 11 hours for the first person to be rescued. The distance from where the crew is trapped to the main entrance is about a half a mile, and the boys had to travel most of that distance underwater to reach freedom. "We can't visit our boys in hospital because they need to be monitored for 48 hours", Mr Somboon said.

On Sunday, teams of divers brought out four of the trapped boys but waited several hours before confirming their safe rescue.

Ambulances transport boys rescued from Tham Luang Nang Non cave to hospital on July 8, 2018 in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

The eight Thai boys rescued from the caves over the weekend and Monday were quickly taken to the hospital and put in isolation rooms as medical teams evaluate the strain on their bodies from nearly two weeks underground.

There are now five members of the Wild Boar football team now left in the cave.

The plight of the boys, aged 11-16, and their coach, has riveted Thailand and much of the world - from the heart-sinking news they were trapped to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys brought back by the pair of British divers who found them after penetrating deep into the sprawling cave.

They were all carried out on stretchers and into ambulances before being airlifted to the Chiang Rai Pranukroh Hospital, where the four players rescued on Sunday are recovering.

On Sunday afternoon, Elon Musk tweeted that the kid-size submarine his team had developed to assist with the rescue of Thai boys trapped in a cave was en route to Thailand.

Four of the boys were rescued on Sunday, and authorities are now working to replenish air tanks along the cave's treacherous exit route.

He said officials were meeting Monday morning about conducting the next stage of the operation.

Authorities have paused the worldwide effort to replenish air tanks along the treacherous exit route. Earlier efforts to pump out water from the cave have been set back every time there has been a heavy downpour.

Monsoon flooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days.

Musk said it would take 17 hours to deliver the mini-submarine.

"Very courageous and talented people!" he tweeted.
