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.
Rescuers resumed preparations on Tuesday for a third rescue operation deep into a cave complex in northern Thailand to free four remaining boys and their soccercoach in a race against time and monsoon weather. Relatives were able to see them through a glass partition, the governor said.
"We expect that if there is no unusual condition. the 4 boys, 1 coach, the doctor, and 3 SEALs who have been with the boys since the first day will will come out today", he told a press conference to loud cheering.
American space entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted that he was in Thailand on Tuesday with a prototype mini-sub, at the flooded cave where five members of a youth football team remained trapped. "We can see that everything is okay as they're eating well", said Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, Inspector General of the Public Health Ministry.
"The Prime Minister wants this to be a lesson, this should not happen again in Thailand", Narongsak said.
Rescue chief Narongsak Osatanakorn said efforts were expected "quicker or at least as quick as yesterday".
All eight boys, aged between 12 and 16, are being treated in an isolation ward in Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital.
An global team of rescuers has been in Thailand since the discovery of the stranded football team and their coach, assisting the Thai Navy SEALs in their rescue efforts.

But the boys have had experts on hand to navigate the tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, with no light to guide the way. Eight of the boys have already been rescued, while four remain.
The boys were still being quarantined from their parents because of the risk of infection and would likely be kept in hospital for a week to undergo tests, officials said earlier on Tuesday.
"But when I saw that he was alive and breathing, it felt very good".
And Gianna Infantino, the president of Federation Internationale de Football Association, soccer's governing body, has invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday. "We can't visit our boys in hospital because they need to be monitored for 48 hours", Somboon told Reuters.
