Thai cave rescue: Boys, coach start road to recovery after dramatic ordeal

Thai cave rescue: Boys, coach start road to recovery after dramatic ordeal

12 Thai boys and their soccer coach have been rescued after more than two weeks trapped in a flooded cave.

Even as a massive operation is underway to rescue the remaining members of the Thai soccer team trapped in a flooded cave, a diver involved with the mission highlighted the risks involved in carrying out the rescue.

Elite foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALs extracted the final batch of four boys, plus the 25-year-old coach, via a treacherous escape route that required them to squeeze through narrow, water-filled tunnels in darkness.

"Waiting for four more Thai Navy SEALs (to come out of the cave) who have been accompanying the kids".

The group was exploring the Tham Luang Cave after a June 23 practice when monsoon rains flooded the cave and blocked their exit.

The eight boys brought out on Sunday and Monday are in good health overall, though two are suffering from pneumonia, according to hospital staff cited by AP.

"It could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital, Jesada told a news conference".

The rescue operation, which began Sunday, included a team of worldwide divers and the Thai Navy SEALs.

After days of planning, the first four boys emerged Sunday after an arduous journey. Another two more boys left the cave complex a short time later followed by the fourth boy.

Trump's nominee must be confirmed by the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow 51- to 49-seat majority. The White House hoped to keep the details under wraps until he rolls out his pick from the East Room.

The story captured national attention since British divers discovered the boys on Monday, July 2. Medical experts say they are in high spirits and generally healthy. "But we will have a psychiatrist evaluate them".

The rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped, officials had said.

"We're here looking at this as a movie that could inspire millions of people around the globe", Scott said.

"We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season", the club said on its official Twitter account.

It was clear doctors were taking a cautious approach.

With oxygen levels in their chamber falling to risky levels and monsoon rains threatening to flood the cave up above the ledge where the boys were sheltering, rescuers decided on the least-worst option of having divers escort them out through the tunnels.

Musk on Tuesday visited the cave and posted pictures and videos online. Musk appeared to deliver the submarine to the rescuers in Thailand, tweeting that he would leave it "here in case it may be useful in the future", adding, "Thailand is so lovely".

Officials scotched any chance of using tech billionaire Elon Musk's mini sub made of rocket parts to rescue the remaining boys.
