Boys Have Been Rescued From Thailand Cave

Thai rescue team members walk inside a cave where 12 boys and their soccer coach have been trapped since June 23 in Mae Sai Chiang Rai province northern Thailand

At the request of Thai authorities, Harris went into the cave yesterday to assess the boys and their coach before rescuers attempted the operation.

Earlier this week, Musk offered engineers from two of his other companies - SpaceX and The Boring Company - to assist the Thai government.

Eight Australian divers are a part of the rescue group.

"Will continue testing in LA in case needed later or somewhere else in the future", he wrote.

A girl shows a collage of pictures before relatives and friends begin prayers for the 12 schoolboys and their soccer coach trapped inside a flooded cave, at Mesai Grace Church in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand. Their condition was not immediately clear. Gen. Anupong said that process could take several hours. A third boy was reportedly freed at about 7:35 p.m. local time, and the fourth was rescued 12 minutes later.

The rescue of the first four boys had brought joy and relief to the families and friends of the 13, with one school friend of some of the boys telling media that he is very happy and thanking the rescue team for bringing his friends out.

The boys had to learn the basics of swimming and diving before they could start the 2.5 mile journey.

Local reports say some of the boys have been evacuated from the cave.

Officials told media gathered at the site that the boys and their coach are in strong spirits and determined to get out. He said officials were meeting Monday morning about conducting the next stage of the operation.

He added, "It's up for them to deliberate. Based on the complexity and difficulty of the cave environment it is unknown how long it might take and how many children would exit the cave". Divers will rest, leaders will evaluate the rescue thus far, and the cave will be prepped with oxygen and other materials required to bring the stranded boys out, he said. Previously, the entire round trip through the cave network was thought to take about 11 hours.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told reporters in Australia that anesthetist and experienced cave diver Richard Harris is working with the Thai medical team inside the cave "to make the decisions about the order in which the boys were to be extracted".

"From the situation assessment, we need to use the area to help victims". That's the name of the young boys' team.

As the monsoon rains begin, water is being pumped out of the caves and a plan is being developed to bring them to safety.

Osotthanakorn said the boys were hungry and asking for a Thai dish of beef with basil and chilli.

The cave rescue mission went faster than practice drills over the last few days, according to Osotthanakorn.

Rescuing them all could take three to four days and depended on the weather, an army commander involved in the mission said. Gen. Chalongchai Chaiyakam said.

Narongsak said Saturday that experts told him new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are sheltering to just 10 square meters (108 square feet).

"We are giving them a physical examination".

A helicopter flew the four boys to the nearby city of Chiang Rai, where they were taken by ambulance to the hospital. This was earlier than what was expected if conditions were ideal.
