Four more boys have been brought out of a flooded cave in northern Thailand as the ongoing rescue operation concludes for the second day, Thai officials said.

They got stuck when exploring the cave complex after soccer practice and a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels.

The rescue began yesterday with the first four boys brought out.

The plan, he said, is to bring out the four boys and their coach on Tuesday if the weather cooperates.

"Two days, eight Boars", read a Facebook post by the Thai Navy SEALS of the dramatic rescue that began Sunday, more than two weeks after the members of the Wild Boars soccer team were trapped.

The ninth boy was carried from the cave on a stretcher shortly AFTER 11:00 SAST, Reuters and CNN reported.

Officials lavished praise on the Thai and worldwide divers who, in pairs of two, executed the unsafe rescue mission, guiding the boys, who could barely swim and had no diving experience, through a treacherous 4-kilometer-long (2 1/2-mile) escape route that twisted and turned through the cavern.

The rescue mission began on Sunday morning, almost a week since the 12 boys, aged 11-16, and their coach had been discovered on an embankment 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) inside the winding tunnels.

The four boys are now "safe and conscious" in hospital after they were extracted from the Tham Luang Nang Non caves in Chiang Rai, officials said.

Narongsak says late in the evening that the rescue mission will not start again for at least another 10 hours to allow oxygen and other supplies to be replenished.

Dozens of foreign divers and other experts from around the world were brought in to help the rescue effort, working alongside the Thai Navy SEALs.

The authorites are still keeping the eight rescued boys away from their parents for fear of infection.

"The kids are footballers, are strong and have high immunity", Jesada said when asked why they survived so long.

The rest that were rescued on Tuesday are expected to join them.

Narongsak would not identify the rescued boys.

Narongsak said he was grateful for Musk's support but the equipment was impractical for the rescue mission.

"We expect that if there is no unusual condition. the four boys, one coach, the doctor, and three SEALs who have been with the boys since the first day will come out today", he told a news conference to loud cheering.

Reuters reports that soccer's governing body, FIFA, has invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday if they make it out in time.

Crowds at the teeming rescue site cheer the good news, but attention soon turns to the hard task of getting the boys out safely.
