Thai cave rescue: Eight boys brought out; now for the final five

Thai cave rescue: Eight boys brought out; now for the final five

The rescued children were taken to the hospital, and officials said early Monday that they are strong and safe but need to undergo detailed medical checks.

Mr Narongsak allayed concerns that recent heavy rain might have raised water levels, saying conditions were "as good as yesterday" "We should hear good news again", he added.

Musk said the aluminum shell of the so-called submarine had high thermal conductivity, meaning it is able to allow heat to pass through it easily, and therefore provide insulation to the person inside. Four others were extracted on Sunday.

Four boys were rescued on Monday evening following the four who were bought safely out of the cave on Sunday. He is still believed to be one of the nine inside the cave. And while oxygen is placed along the road, one experienced ex-Thai Navy SEAL diver lost his life last week while replacing the oxygen canisters.

The Thai authorities have been pumping out water from the cave system ever since locating the missing soccer team, but that wasn't enough to remove all the water.

Four of the boys were rescued on Sunday, and authorities said the next phase could begin any time within a 10-hour window that began about 7 a.m. Monday.

Seven more boys and the coach are still trapped. The boys who were removed were considered the weakest, reports said. Last week, Musk sent engineers from two of his companies, SpaceX and Boring Co., to assist Thai officials in the rescue effort, which comprises a large team of worldwide diving, engineering and medical experts, among other professionals.

Chiang Rai provincial acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said the four healthiest boys were taken from the cave first.

The eight Thai boys rescued from the caves over the weekend and Monday were quickly taken to the hospital and put in isolation rooms as medical teams evaluate the strain on their bodies from nearly two weeks underground.

Thailand cave rescue: Operation underway to bring boys out of cave
Harris studied to be an anaesthetist in New Zealand and has been diving in South Island cave systems in the past few years. One of the boys to emerge was a 13-year-old Mongkol Boonpiem, local media has reported.

The letter signed by Infantino invited the team and their coach to the World Cup final in Russian Federation on Sunday (NZT 3am Monday), should they be rescued in time and were healthy enough to travel to Moscow.

Officials say that the first four boys who were rescued on Sunday are doing well in hospital and asked to be able to eat khao pad krapow, a Thai dish with chicken and basil.

He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests.

According to a document released by the Thai authorities, two divers will accompany each of the teenagers.

Authorities spent hours replenishing air tanks along the cave's treacherous exit route.

Rescuers have been navigating a unsafe and complicated plan to get the children out under the threat of heavy rain and rising water underground.

Monsoon flooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days. An international-level rescue mission began soon after, with hundreds of experts and military personnel from various countries arriving at the spot.

The other, and perhaps more worrying, was that oxygen levels in the complex were falling close to unsafe levels.
