Second day of Thailand cave rescue

Second day of Thailand cave rescue

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 12 members of a youth football team, along with their 25-year-old coach, have now been rescued from the Tham Luang cave in Thailand's Chiang Rai Province.

The first two schoolboys have emerged from a flooded Thai cave after divers launched a daring and risky mission to rescue the children and their soccer coach, who have been trapped underground for more than two weeks, a Thai official said.

On Sunday, divers held the first four boys close to bring them out, and each had to wear an oxygen mask to enable normal breathing, authorities said.

After his visit, he went to Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital to visit the rescued boys.

Update: 6:45 a.m. EDT- Rescue workers brought out a fifth boy at 5 p.m. local time (6 a.m. EDT) Monday from the cave in Thailand, the Guardian reported.

The plight of the boys, aged 11-16, and their coach, has riveted Thailand and much of the world - from the heart-sinking news they were missing to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys once they were found by the pair of British divers deep in the sprawling cave.

"The rescue has been enormous", said volunteer helper Somjit Saenset, 56.

The rescue mission has been a huge operation, led by the Royal Thai Navy's SEAL unit, and supported by a cast of hundreds.

The boys and their coach have been trapped in the cave system in the country's north for about two weeks. Each boy was accompanied by two divers in an arduous journey through a mile of underwater tunnels.

However, rumours have rated that he has apparently been giving his food to the boys to keep them healthy, if this turns out to be true he may be rescued sooner rather than later.

During the press conference, Thai authorities said they were hoping it wouldn't rain for the rest of the rescue operation so that the process could be faster.

Four were extracted from the cave on the first day of the rescue operation, while another four were brought out on Monday.

Among those are USA military partners, British cave diving experts - including the two men who first located the boys a week ago - and rescue workers from Australia, China and other countries.

The extraction of the four on Monday followed a similar pattern to the previous day, with the youngsters emerging in quick succession just before nightfall after navigating a treacherous escape route of more than four kilometres.

A total of eight boys have now been taken out of the Tham Luang Nang Non cave, according to the Thai navy SEAL group, which has a leading role in the rescue operation.

The boys will "be evaluated by doctors for five to seven days", Dr Chokedamrongsook said. I've told Yod to get ready to take me out for fried chicken.

"I'm hoping for good news". On top of all the concerns inside the cave, Thailand's rainy season is looming.
