The billionaire entrepreneur has been tweeting proposals and offering his services to the Thai government in its efforts to extract the 12 boys and their soccer coach from a partially flooded cave.

"Everyone safe", the Thai Navy SEALs posted on their Facebook page, referring to the name of the soccer club. Thailand's Department of Mental Health said hospitals are making preparations to care for the boys' and will monitor them until their mental health is fully regained.

Narongsak said after the first four boys were rescued that they would be quarantined "for a while because we are concerned about infections".

Dozens of foreign divers and other experts from around the world were brought in to help the rescue effort, working alongside Thai Navy Seals. Since then, an worldwide team of engineers, rescuers and divers has been delivering supplies and food to the children and their coach ― and mulling ways to best help them escape.

The families of Thai boys rescued after a harrowing two weeks trapped in a cave deep underground will be allowed to see them today, but will be told not to hug or kiss them until health checks are complete.

Night's relatives have said they believe the group went to the cave to celebrate his 16th birthday after a Saturday football practice and got caught as heavy rains caused the water inside the cave to suddenly rise. Pairs of divers shepherded the boys on the long and painstaking journey out of the cave, navigating muddy and silty water through tight passages.

The 12 young footballers and their coach became trapped in the Thiam Luang cave two weeks ago due to rising water after they entered the cave made it impossible for them to escape.

A total of eight boys were removed from the cave on Sunday and Monday.

Mini-sub to the rescue!

"The prime minister said that this kind of event should never happen again on Thai soil", Narongsak told reporters.

So far, divers have rescued four additional boys, which leaves four more and their soccer coach to go.

Meanwhile, Thailand's weather department said there was a 60 percent chance of rain on Monday with thunderstorms forecast throughout the week. They were all treated for rabies, in case of bats in the cave, and tetanus, and set up with IV drips.

Those rescued from the depths of the cave complex have been helicoptered off the Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital, about 70 km (40 miles) away. "It's probably 90 percent of what gets them out of the cave". A nutritionist is monitoring their diet and has recommended that they eat nothing spicy or salty - despite the boys' cravings for spicy basil pork and rice, and grilled pork.

By Monday evening, the boys were able to joke, laugh, and have normal conversation, doctors said.

"Adolescents are especially social creatures, and having friends with them as well as their coach would be a tremendous help", said David Spiegel, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford University's medical school.
