Boys Rescued From Thai Cave, Operations Halted For The Day

Fighting time, high waters, divers prepare to rescue second group of Thai boys from cave

Thailand cave rescue: How did they get trapped?

Thai authorities said the second phase of the operation to rescue a youth soccer team trapped in a flooded cave was underway Monday, a day after four boys were pulled from the complex after more than two weeks underground.

Rescuers have been navigating a unsafe and complicated plan to get the children out under the threat of heavy rain and rising water underground.

On Monday afternoon, Osatanakorn said the same group of divers involved in Sunday's rescue operation had entered the cave at 11 a.m. local time to rescue the group still stuck inside.

After Musk received an outpouring of gratitude for his rescue plans, he replied: "Thanks, we've not done anything useful yet".

Elite divers hauled four more young footballers out of a flooded Thai cave on Monday, authorities said, bringing to eight the number saved in a stunning rescue mission but still leaving five others trapped. All the boys were in good condition, Narongsak said.

The journey out of the cave from the chamber the boys and their coach have been trapped takes even experienced Navy SEAL divers as long as five or six hours to complete.

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was scheduled to visit the site later Monday, after first traveling south to Phuket, where a boat capsizing resulted in 42 deaths, mostly tourists from China. Massive pumps are being used to lower water levels to shorten the underwater distances. "We thought of everything that could happen, everything that could break, anything that can go bad".

The four boys who were evacuated on Sunday are said to be doing well. The rescue went faster than in practice deals, the governor said. "I want to send my moral support for all involved" in the rest of the mission.

The four boys who were rescued on Sunday appeared to be in good health, Thai officials said, but were undergoing a battery of medical tests in the hospital to ensure they were free from disease and infection.

The saga has dominated global headlines, with the team spending nine days unaccounted for inside the cave, before British divers found them - emaciated and dishevelled - huddling on a muddy bank above the flooding.

A total of eight of the 12 boys have now been brought out of the treacherous cave system by divers, including four who were brought out on Sunday, when the rescue operation began.

Narongsak said rescuers had to tighten a guide rope as part of their preparations for Monday's operation.

Mr Narongsak said yesterday morning that the boys and their coach were physically and mentally strong enough to dive their way out of Tham Luang.

The rescued kids are now in the hospital, where they should receive the proper care before being released to their families.

The rescued boys are being kept in sterilized isolation units at a nearby hospital, which prohibits physical contact, and their parents have not been told they're safe.

"We've been working continuously overnight", a Chiang Rai government source told AFP on Monday morning, requesting anonymity, and confirming that there had only been a pause of the actual extraction operations. One of the boys was removed by divers, placed on a stretcher and hospitalized.
