  • Thailand Cave Rescue Saves 8 Children Trapped For Weeks Underground

He said he hoped the rescue mission, which would begin with 19 divers and include more throughout the day, would proceed even faster than Monday's nine-hour operation.

Nargonsak said this phase may take longer than the previous two rescue missions, which both lasted several hours. Rescue operations have halted for the night and will restart on Tuesday.

The first thing the Thai boys rescued from a cave said was that they missed their homes and were happy to be out of the cave, officials at the the Chiang Rai hospital said on Sunday. Another two more boys left the cave complex a short time later followed by the fourth boy.

Chief of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, declined to comment on the identity of the four people brought out in the evening, saying updates would be supplied at a news conference that is scheduled to be held late on Monday. The complex and risky effort to rescue them has gripped the attention of much of the world.

Since the operation started, the area outside the cave's entrance has filled with media, volunteers and onlookers. However it was not clear if the 25-year-old coach was among them or if he remained inside.

Authorities had closely guarded the details of the boys' condition, who will be monitored in hospital for a week.

Rescue officials were hopeful that the final four boys and their coach would be rescued Tuesday.

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to risky lows and the prospect of heavy rains flooding the area completely, authorities decided they had to move quickly, and take the group out through the water-filled tunnels.

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around their hospital beds.

"If everything goes right, we will see four kids and a doctor and three Seals that have stayed with the kids will all come out", he said. They were trapped in the Tham Luan Nang Non cave that became flooded by monsoon rains while they were exploring it after a soccer practice on June 23.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems, " Jedsada said.

The hoped-for final chapter in an ordeal that has gripped the world came after elite foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALs escorted eight members of the "Wild Boars" football team out of the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand on Sunday and Monday. 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.

"Although his technology is good and sophisticated, it's not practical for this mission", Osatanakorn said after the press conference.

Four ambulances and a convoy of other vehicles arrived at the cave site Tuesday morning as rains hit the region.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.

After garnering headlines with initial ideas of installing a giant air tube inside the cave complex and using his firm's penetrating radar to dig holes to reach the boys, Musk offered his idea for the mini-sub.
