Rescue begins to pull remaining boys, coach from Thai cave

The rescue of the first four boys - whose soccer team is known as the Wild Boars - brought cheers and optimism on Sunday, bolstering hopes that more of the boys can survive a complicated and hours-long process that includes the use of multiple divers and a system of air tanks stashed along the escape route.

The second phase of the rescue mission began around 11 a.m. local time (midnight ET) and took several hours.

Five ambulances were seen driving toward the cave complex on Monday afternoon, and at least one helicopter was also seen heading toward the cave entrance.

Eight boys in total have been extracted from a cave in Mae Sai after Thai divers resumed operations in the cave rescue at 11am (6 am SAST) on Tuesday, according to global news reports.

A spokesman for Musk's Boring Co. tunneling unit, which has four engineers at the cave, said in an email yesterday that Thai officials had requested the device.

The search and rescue operation has riveted people both in Thailand and internationally, with journalists from across the globe travelling to this town along the border with Myanmar to report on the ordeal.

There are now five members of the Wild Boar football team now left in the cave.

Extracting everyone could take up to four days, but the initial success raised hopes that could be done.

The first kilometer is the hardest, CNN explains, as that's where the children have to navigate a narrow flooded channel. It takes the divers about eight hours to get into the cave, reach the boys, and bring them back out. Having completed this section, the boys are then handed over to separate, specialist rescue teams, who help assist them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they can wade through.

The freed boys are yet to meet their parents, who late Sunday night were yet to be told which of their sons had been removed, according to the UK's Guardian. But the rain largely held off on Monday.

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

"I don't know if he is out, they didn't tell us", she said as she rested in a hut close to the mouth of the cave. "We have to quarantine them for a little while due to fear of infection". His colleagues said they would "not let the sacrifice of our friend go to waste".

"Think about the responsibility of taking a kid under/beneath there and the conditions are really scary", said rescuer Rafael Aroush. Visitors would need to wear sanitized clothes and stay two meters away from the children.

Thai authorities say they have resumed operations to rescue members of a boys' soccer team trapped in a flooded cave after successfully getting four of the boys out on Sunday. 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. Previously, round trips through the cave network would take about 11 hours.

While the governor would not confirm the identities of the four boys, he said the first one emerged at 5:40 p.m. local time (6.40 a.m. ET), followed by the second boy 10 minutes later.
