Divers Hope To Rescue Remaining Boys Trapped In Thai Cave

"All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Navy SEAL unit, which led the rescue, said on its Facebook page, adding all were safe.

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.

A rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

Four boys and the coach are still to be rescued. The 18-day ordeal ended after three rescue missions which involved the Thai navy SEALs and divers from around the world.

It is not yet clear what condition those brought out on Tuesday are in.

"All five will be brought out at the same time today", he said, to cheers from reporters and rescue workers.

The unprecedented mission to evacuate the "Wild Boar" football team and their coach from a flooded Thai cave entered its end game Tuesday as rescuers said they will guide the remaining four boys and their coach to freedom.

It's unclear whether Thai officials will opt to use Musk's submarine to rescue the four remaining boys and their soccer coach.

The second group of 4 that were pulled out afterwards are aged between 12 and 14.

"All eight rescued boys today are in good health, none have a fever", Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the ministry of public health, told a news conference in Chiang Rai in northern Thailand.

The boys remain in quarantine but some of their parents have been able to see their children through the glass.

Experts warned that drinking contaminated water or otherwise being exposed to bird or bat droppings in the cave could lead to unsafe infections. However, senior health official Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk said all of them are "healthy and smiling".

He said experience gained during the successful extractions in the preceding two days would allow them to work faster and more efficiently.

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to risky lows and the prospect of heavy rains flooding the area completely, authorities decided they had to move quickly and take the group out through the water-filled tunnels.

Chiang Rai Gov.Narongsak Osatanakorn said Tuesday's intricate and high-risk operation began just after 10 a.m. and involves 19 divers.

In a day of high drama, the remaining five boys emerged in groups as evening approached, guided out by global divers and the Seals, who have played an integral role throughout an unprecedented rescue mission. He added, "They still need to be kept away from their parents and others due to fear about infection".

Nargonsak said this phase may take longer than the previous two rescue missions, which took up to 11 hours.
