Operation To Rescue Boys Trapped In Thai Cave Resumes

Four Of The Boys Trapped In Thai Cave Rescued

An ambulance believed to be carrying one of the rescued schoolboys leaves from Tham Luang cave complex on day two of the rescue.

The names of the rescued boys were not released. Narongsak on Monday said their identities were being protected out of respect for the families of those still trapped inside the cave.

The football team went missing on June 23, having gone into the caves after Saturday practice to do some exploring, and ended up being trapped by rising flood water.

Eight members of the soccer team stranded in a flooded cave complex in northern Thailand have been saved as rescue efforts continued for a second day.

Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is heading the rescue, had said the second phase began at 11 a.M. Monday and authorities "hope to hear good news in the next few hours".

The three-and-a-half-hour mission, led by expert British divers, saw four children being calmly guided to safety after 15 days of being stuck in their fetid underground prison. Four came out Monday, and it is possible Tuesday's plan was to bring out four more.

On Sunday, four of the boys were extracted in a hard mission involving 13 foreign divers and five members of Thailand's navy SEAL unit.

Rescue operations were stopped Sunday evening post the rescue of four boys to replace air tanks and supplies, and it resumed Monday morning.

On Sunday night, Must tweeted that the submarine would arrive about 11 p.m. on Monday local time.

Divers had to hold the first four boys close to their bodies to bring them out and each had to wear an oxygen mask to enable normal breathing, authorities said.

"We've been working continuously overnight", a Chiang Rai government source told AFP on Monday morning, requesting anonymity, and confirming that there had only been a pause of the actual extraction operations.

Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda told reporters the four boys rescued on Sunday were in good health in hospital but did not give details. There was no word on the condition of the fifth boy brought out earlier on Monday.

The children's families have not been told which boys have been rescued.

The rescued boys had to travel about 2 1/2 miles with oxygen tanks, making their way back to the cave's entrance using a 3-mile rope.

Rescue operations chief Narongsak Osottanakorn described Sunday's initial rescue bid as "D-Day" when it was launched, and there were fears that any one of many potential pitfalls could prove deadly.

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

"The weather conditions and other environments today are as good as yesterday". The mood was fairly relaxed among the soldiers, medics, engineers and volunteers in yellow shirts that milled around.

"I feel very happy, everybody is happy", said Hnin Jaiwong, the mother of one of the trapped boys, 13-year-old Sompong Jaiwong.

Relatives say the boys had been inside the cave during the dry season, when the labyrinthine complex is easier to navigate.

Hundreds of spectators and journalists have gathered in the area around the cave, hoping for news that the boys and their coach would emerge safely.
