Thailand cave rescue: how did the boys get out?

The rescue mission which spanned days was a success after everyone was rescued.

Another four were rescued on Monday and the last four boys and the coach were brought out on Tuesday.

Each person had to be tethered to two divers and follow a 3-mile-long rope guiding them back to the cave's entrance, part of it while being submerged with a full face mask.

If medical tests show no dangers after another two days, parents will be able to enter the isolation area dressed in sterilized clothing, staying two meters (yards) away from the boys, said another public health official, Tosthep Bunthong.

"But of course, they were conscious", he 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 global diving, engineering and medical experts, among other professionals.

Authorities did not reveal the identity of the boys as they were brought out, one by one.

Each time the commander of the rescue mission held a news conference outside a local government office, hundreds of journalists crammed together for the latest updates.

"Manchester United is greatly relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are now safe", the club posted on Facebook. Eight of the boys-all of whom are in good health-have been rescued so far.

The first eight boys to exit the cave have been recovering in quarantine in Chiang Rai hospital. People across the world held their breath as the second group of boys was escorted out on Monday, leaving just four others and their coach trapped inside. "If I see him, I just want to hug him and tell him that I missed him very much", she said.

A group of men who had been helping pump water out of the cave for the past two weeks share a meal at a restaurant in Chiang Rai while watching news of the third and final rescue.

The Tham Luang cave system will now be closed for some time, prime minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha said.

President Donald Trump joined those paying tribute to the rescuers.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach are now being assessed in hospital.

The disappearance, discovery and rescue of the Wild Boars soccer team has gripped people all over the world.
