First boys emerge from cave

Two ambulances were seen leaving the cave in northern Thailand hours after the operation began to rescue the trapped young soccer players First boys emerge from cave

Ambulances have been seen driving away from the cave complex and heading for hospital 35 miles away. It was the rain that stranded the boys and their coach inside the caves to begin with, after they left their bicycles and ventured into the cave network late last month.

The third teenager rescued from the cave was said to need immediate medical attention, and instead of being taken by ambulance he was airlifted to hospital straight from the cave mouth.

As of last night, even the parents of the boys had not been told who had been rescued, one mother told our reporter Michael Safi.

The only way to bring the 13 out is by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, as well as oxygen-depleted air.

Thai Navy SEALS confirmed on Facebook that the fourth boy had made it out at about 7:55 p.m. local time.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, went missing with their 25-year-old coach after soccer practice on June 23, setting out on an adventure to explore the cave complex, reportedly for a picnic to celebrate one of their birthdays, before being trapped by rising waters from bursts of monsoon rain.

He had been listed as red, signifying a serious case after being trapped in Tham Luang cave since June 23.

Crews launched an operation to rescue the boys and their coach Sunday morning. But authorities have said it remains unclear how long the boys would have to remain inside.

"We, the Thai team and the worldwide team, will bring the Wild Boars home", referencing the boys' soccer team name. The boys had moved 400 meters further in as the ledge had become covered by water.

In neat blue handwriting, 11-year-old Chanin Viboonrungruang, the youngest of the group, told his parents not to worry, and said he was looking forward to eating fried chicken.

Several of the boys emerged from the cave on Sunday, about eight hours after 18 divers began their operation to free them.

Their experience is expected to lead to nightmares, sleep problems, stomach and headaches and clinginess with parents, as well as getting angry and upset more easily.

Chiang Rai governor and operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said at a press conference Sunday that he had met the children and they were in "perfect" health. "But I expect the operation to finish in the next couple of days".

"We will still maintain our planned mission and the two main obstacles are time and water", a spokesperson said.

Families of the teenage soccer players have expressed their joy over the discovery of the boys.

More than 100 exploratory holes were also bored into the mountainside in an attempt to open a second evacuation route and avoid forcing the boys into the risky dive.

Why it is proving hard to extricate Thai cave boys What next? Steve George of CNN noted families were informed of the plan after the team had been trapped for 15 days. Another option would be to drill a hole into the cave and airlift the boys out.

A Thai military helicopter, allegedly carrying some of the boys among a group of 13 trapped inside a flooded Thai cave, lands at a field in the Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai province on July 8, 2018.
