‘Everyone is safe’ after daring rescue of 13 in Thai cave

Thailand Ministry of Public Health

Two are believed to have pneumonia but the first eight boys to surface have recovered enough to ask for bread with chocolate spread for their breakfast instead of bland porridge.

The Latest: The official who led the Thai cave rescue says the medic and three Thai navy SEAL divers who stayed with the trapped boys after they were found have left the flooded cave.

Forecasts of more rain also threatened to raise water levels, further educing the amount of available air and jeopardizing efforts to get the boys out. All have now been transferred to hospital. A dozen team members ranging in age from 11 to 16 and their coach became trapped on June 23 while exploring Tham Luang cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after a soccer practice.

British divers found the 13, hungry and huddled in darkness on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber several miles inside the Tham Luang cave complex, on Monday last week.

Since the operation started, the area outside the cave's entrance has filled with media, volunteers and onlookers.

The Thai football team rescued from a cave after 17 days underground will not attend the World Cup final due to medical reasons, FIFA has confirmed.

Conditions were so risky that a retired Thai Navy SEAL died on Friday while trying to lay out oxygen tanks underwater in a tunnel, and the rescue chief at one point dubbed the operation "Mission Impossible". "Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out". They'll be allowed to enter the room if tests show the boys are free of infection.

It was a sentiment echoed around the globe as millions of people watched the rescue of 12 young boys and their soccer coach stuck in a Thailand cave.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, told a news conference.

Tech inventor Elon Musk has developed a "tiny, kid-size submarine" that could help rescue the four boys and their soccer coach who remain trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand.

The Associated Press reports that the families of the boys "were being kept at a distance because of fears of infection and the emaciated-looking boys were eating a rice-based porridge because they were still too weak to take regular food, authorities said".

The boys remain in quarantine but some of their parents have been able to see their children through the glass. "We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season".

Boys number six and seven were brought out a little over an hour later, with boy number eight spotted being taken out at about 7.40pm local time.
