Boys Rescued From Thai Cave, Operations Halted For The Day

Elon Musk shares videos of 'kid-size submarine' built to assist in Thai cave rescue- Watch Boys Rescued From Thai Cave, Operations Halted For The Day

"I beg Phra Pirun because the Meteorological Department said that from Monday on there will be continuous rain", Bancha said.

The Wild Boars and their coach became trapped on June 23 when they set out to explore the vast cave complex after soccer practice, when a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels.

The saga has dominated global headlines, with the team spending nine days unaccounted for inside the cave, before British divers found them - emaciated and dishevelled - huddling on a muddy bank above the flooding.

Ambulances and rescue crews have returned to the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand for a second operation to free more trapped boys.

A truck carrying oxygen tanks arrives outside the Tham Luang cave complex, where 12 schoolboys and their soccer coach are trapped inside a flooded cave, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 8, 2018.

It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said.

Musk tweeted Sunday that a "kid-size submarine" meant to help the boys navigate narrow, flooded passageways on their way to safety is on the 17-hour trip to Thailand from Los Angeles.

Four of the 13 were rescued on Sunday, but authorities have not yet identified them publicly and details of their condition remain sparse.

Narongsak said he was not sure if the remaining five people will be extracted in one or more operations.

A total of eight boys have now been rescued.

Thai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn described the first rescue as "our masterpiece work" and claimed the four rescued boys were in "perfect" health - despite earlier reports that one was being "closely monitored".

He was taken by helicopter and ambulance to the same hospital in Chiang Rai where the first four boys rescued Sunday by a team of global and Thai dive experts are being treated.

Families have not been told which boys are free, so all parents have agreed to remain at the cave until the entire team is rescued. They are also working with the families to prepare for how to interact with the boys once they get out, such as not digging for details about what they endured.

Medical teams previously said concerns included hypothermia and an airborne lung infection known as "cave disease", which is caused by bat and bird droppings.

He said the plan is to launch the third rescue mission within 20 hours, and he is hoping for "100 per cent success".

A hospital spokesperson told media the priority was to make sure the children were safe.

"This morning they said they were hungry and wanted to eat khao pad grapao", Narongsak said, referring to a Thai dish of meat fried with chili and basil and served over rice.

"All conditions are still as good as they were yesterday, " Narongsak told a news conference.

Rescuers chose to go ahead with the operation to free them because of fears that waters would rise again. Soldiers, medics, engineers and volunteers in yellow shirts milled around but the mood was relaxed. "I'm so happy the children came out safely".

"Adolescents are especially social creatures, and having friends with them as well as their coach would be a tremendous help", said David Spiegel, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford University's medical school.
