  • Thailand's Tham Luang cave complex

The final four boys who were rescued from a Thai cave on Tuesday night still can't talk. A massive effort to pump out water made the winding passageways more navigable.

They were taken by helicopter to a hospital about 70 km (45 miles) away to join their team mates in quarantine for the time being. They were immediately sent for a medical examination, but there has been no news about their condition.

"The rescue mission was made possible by a remarkable example of global cooperation". Each of the rescued boys has been guided through the dark, narrow cave by a pair of divers. The machine could be "good for rescuing vulnerable patients in unsafe environments, particularly if water, toxic gas or risky bacteria/viruses are present", Musk tweeted today (July 10). They received intravenous treatment, vaccines, antibiotics and vitamins.

"The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe", the Thai navy SEAL unit said on its official Facebook page.

Thongchai said one from the last group rescued on Tuesday had a lung infection and they were all were given vaccinations for rabies and tetanus. The food had been cooked in the camp right outside the mouth of the cave, but the boys could only nibble on the rice because they'd grown so weak, the Thai military sources said.

Families of the first four have been able to see their children through a glass window, Chokedamrongsook said. 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. Jedsada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

John Tangkitcharoenthawon, a local village chairman, was bursting with happiness over the successful rescue.

The ups and downs of the rescue bid entranced Thailand and also fixated a global audience, drawing support from celebrities as varied as US President Donald Trump, football star Lionel Messi and tech guru Elon Musk. "It doesn't fit with our mission to go in the cave", Osotthanakorn said. "Such a attractive moment - all freed, great job!"

When Thai navy SEALs confirmed that all 12 soccer players and their coach had been safely rescued from the flooded cave they had entered 18 days ago, Simmee Oupra was overcome with emotion.

A message posted on the English Premier League club's Twitter account said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected".

The dozen players - aged 11 to 16 - and the coach had already received an invitation from Federation Internationale de Football Association chief Gianni Infantino last week to attend the World Cup final on Sunday in Moscow - although after their traumatic experience they may not be up to the trip physically or mentally.

Meanwhile, Manchester United invited the boys to game at their home stadium Old Trafford next season while Portugese team Benfica invited the Wild Boars to an expenses-paid week at its training academy.
