An ambulance was seen leaving the scene immediately afterward early Monday evening.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has welcomed the rescue of four boys from a cave in northern Thailand, as 19 Australians continue to work on the precarious rescue operation.

The boys smile as Thai Navy SEAL medic helps injured children inside a cave in Mae Sai, northern Thailand.

For the boys - some of whom can't swim - the most unsafe part of the journey out of the labyrinth cave system remains the first kilometer, in which they are required to pass through a flooded channel no wider than a person.

Among those are United States 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.

Navy seal officers, two Thai and one global, stopped to pray and lock arms before going inside the cave to begin their rescue efforts.

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys. A scrawled message emerges from the team's coach, offering his "apologies" to their parents.

"We have to place new oxygen tanks (along the route) as the previous ones have been used in today's operation", he noted.

Their disappearance triggered a massive global search and rescue operation involving officials, soldiers and volunteers from the United States, Britain, Australia, Germany, Japan and China, among others. They have reportedly been able to make the last part on foot.

His updates came after United States and Thai officials confirmed Sunday that four boys had been rescued from a flooded cave network after spending 15 days trapped along with their soccer team and coach.

A second diver followed the pair through the cold water and airless chambers that have already claimed one life.

As of Monday morning, nine people remained trapped in the cave, including the 12-member team's coach, after four boys were rescued on Sunday, the first day of the rescue operation.

The extraction of those remaining is expected to take another two to four days, depending on conditions.

Eight boys and the coach remain trapped, and experts are hoping to free the rest of the boys today.

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 trapped to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys brought back by the pair of British divers who found them after penetrating deep into the sprawling cave.

Thailand's Meteorological Department said there was a 60 percent chance of rain Monday with thunderstorms forecast throughout the week.

The next phase of the operation would start sometime Monday after rescue teams replenish the supply of oxygen tanks along the route. Musk said based on "feedback from Thailand", the engineers made a decision to build a "tiny, kid-size submarine" using a large silver tube meant to be affixed to a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

On Sunday, Musk tweeted a series of videos showing a team of divers testing the pod in the swimming pool at Palisades Charter High School. If the tests come out successful, the sub would be placed on a 17-hour flight to Thailand.

"I can not tell you how impressed I am with the significant group of rescue divers they have down there willing to take this challenge on", he said.

Sam Teller, the spokesperson for the Boring Company, said four company engineers were "offering support in any way the government deems useful".

The boys were taken straight to hospital.

On Sunday, Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn held a press conference to announce that four of the 12 boys had been successfully evacuated.

The area outside the Chiang Rai hospital was cordoned off by police. It had been feared that sustained heavy rain could raise water levels inside the cave, greatly hindering the rescue operation.

The entire group had been trapped for more than two weeks.

But Thai authorities had already began there rescue efforts before the vessel was completed without Mr Musk's help.

Wednesday, July 4: Officials say the group are being taught how to use diving masks and breathing apparatuses.
