Four boys rescued from Thailand cave; rescue efforts will continue tonight

Former navy diver dies during Thailand cave rescue effort

At 10am local time, 18 divers went into the cave to bring out the boys - including 13 global divers and five Thai Navy Seals.

The soccer team's ordeal has drawn huge media attention in Thailand and overseas, as monsoon conditions worsened amid a frantic search to find the trapped youngsters.

USA special operations teams and divers have been part of the Thai-led global rescue effort that led to four boys being pulled to safety from a cave Sunday after being trapped for 16 days.

Sunday's mission actually went quicker than it had in rehearsals, Osotthanakorn said, which took place over the last three to four days.

"Today is D-Day", Gov. Narongsak Osattanakorn of the Chiang Rai region in Thailand said Sunday.

Authorities in northern Chiang Rai province began the risky mission to bring out the 12 boys and their coach earlier on Sunday. They have been stuck in the cave since June 23 after heavy rains flooded the Tham Luang Nan Non caves in Chiang Rai, a popular tourist attraction in the region. Musk's small submarines will reportedly be light enough for two divers to carry.

The couple will then stay at Winfield House , the United States ambassador's residence on the edge of Regent's Park in London. Trump's short visit comes off the back of speculation about when he would land on the soil of America's closest ally.

The junior team comprised of 12 boys aged between 11 and 16 years while their coach, who was leading the expedition, is just 25-year-old.

According to the Associated Press, Thai officials said the healthiest boys have been taken out of the cave first.

The governor has called the rescue a "war with water and time".

"If we keep on waiting and the rains come in the next three or four days, our readiness will decrease", Narongsak said, according to the AP.

Jake Zweig said on "Fox & Friends" that he was confident in the SEALs working to rescue the 12 boys and their coach, but that there is a possibility of a rescuer losing his life.

Thirteen medical teams were stationed outside the cave - each with its own helicopter and ambulance - one for each of 12 boys and their coach.

In a match full of big swings, Keys led 5-2 in the first set before Rodina won the next nine games to go 4-0 up in the second. She then broke back to level the third set at 4-4, but Rodina immediately earned another break and served out the victory.

After pumping out water for days, experts say the window to rescue the boys is closing and it is now or never.

He said the rescue operation was pausing for about 10 to 20 hours to check the escape route again for safety before being resumed.

Adding to the theory is the relatively short time it took to retrieve the four boys from the cave because of the lower water levels, which meant they could wade through some sections of the underground labyrinth instead of diving.

President Donald Trump is praising the rescue efforts underway in Thailand to save a boys soccer team trapped in a cave and touted the help the United States is giving.

AFPnews agency quotes an official saying four boys in Thai cave have reached a rescue camp, and will walk out of the cave soon.

On Saturday, one father told Sky News he felt confident his son was "in safe hands" after receiving a letter from the boy, brought to parents by rescuers.
