Rescue mission day two : four more boys evacuated

After the boys were located they were able to communicate to their family through letters

Dr. Harris on Saturday undertook the unsafe dive to reach the 12 Thai boys and their coach and later gave the final approval on the boys' health, clearing the way for the rescue attempt which commenced yesterday and succeed in bringing out four of the survivors, the paper reported.

The boy was seen on a stretcher just before 4:30 p.m. local time (5.30 a.m. ET) after the dramatic rescue from the Tham Luang cave complex, according to CNN.

Four boys were brought out of the cave Monday and are "safe and conscious", Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said.

A total of eight boys have now been brought out of the cave complex.

The rescue mission is expected to resume Tuesday morning local time to bring out the remainder of the team.

Rescue operation commander Narongsak Osottanakorn declined to say how many people would be taken out on Monday, but a Thai navy source said it was likely to be four or five.

First of all, four of the boys were successfully extracted from the cave system.

Authorities said a medical team was assessing whether to reunite the boys with their parents soon.

There are now five members of the Wild Boar football team now left in the cave. Two divers accompanied each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when searchers found them. It is about two kilometres from the entrance.

A spokesman for Musk's Boring Co. tunneling unit, which has four engineers at the cave, has said Thai officials requested the device, which could potentially help the children through narrow, flooded cave passageways.

Rescuers need to hold the boys' oxygen tanks in front of them and swim pencil-like through submerged holes.

Doctors fear the children, who are aged between 11 and 16, may have contracted illnesses or infections while they were trapped underground.

A heavy but brief downpour hit the area Monday morning, but authorities said that did not change the water level in the cave, as workers continue to pump water out.

Osotthanakorn said the boys were hungry and asking for a Thai dish of beef with basil and chilli.

Each had to wear an oxygen mask to enable normal breathing, authorities said.

Thailand's Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda has revealed the same divers who rescued the four boys will also conduct the next operation due to their knowledge of the terrain. None of those kids will have to spend any time inside the tiny submarine, but it could be developed further for similar rescue missions in the future. Previously, the entire round trip through the cave network was thought to take about 11 hours.

The four boys pulled from the cave Sunday in an urgent and risky operation that involved them diving through the cave's tight and twisting passages were in good health. It was unclear who was inside the ambulance or the helicopter. Onlookers were seen watching and cheering as they drove by.

The fifth and sixth boys emerged from Tham Luang Nang Non cave, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, after foreign and Thai divers resumed rescue work earlier in the day to extract those remaining in the cave after being stranded for over two weeks.

But the death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver who ran out of oxygen in the cave on Friday underscored the danger of the journey. Officials have yet to confirm the identities of the four boys freed. So the sub still could come into play on a third day of rescues.
