Thai cave rescue operation suspended after four more boys freed

Fighting time, high waters, divers prepare to rescue second group of Thai boys from cave

Expert divers assigned to the task of saving a youth soccer team trapped in a cave in northern Thailand for more than two weeks looked set to resume their operation on Monday, a day after four people were brought out.

An ambulance leaves the cave in northern Thailand hours after the operation began to rescue the trapped soccer players and their coach.

Monday's operation took nine hours, two fewer than Sunday, with rescuers helped by the experience they have accumulated, Narongsak told a news conference punctuated with rounds of applause.

The unsafe bid to rescue the boys-aged between 11 and 16-got going again after a break from late on Sunday to replenish oxygen supplies and make other preparations deep inside the cave complex in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai province. It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said. Officials have said storms forecast for Chiang Rai province in Thailand's far north had factored into their decision to go ahead with a complicated and risky plan to have the boys and their coach dive out of the cave.

In the tweet, Musk said that the "kid-size" submarine was en-route to Thailand along with a group of engineers and was expected to reach there in 17 hours.

It all started with a plea from a random Twitter user. "If depth of 2nd is accurate, would need ~0.5 bar tube pressure", he wrote. They became trapped inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave, which is believed to be about 4-5 miles long .

Police and military personnel use umbrellas to cover around a stretcher near a helicopter and an ambulance at a military airport in Chiang Rai on July 9, as rescue operations continue for those still trapped inside the cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in the Mae Sai district.

Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda had said early Monday that the same divers who took part in Sunday's rescue would return to extricate the others as they know the cave conditions and what to do.

The first four boys to be rescued were led out of the cave by an worldwide team of rescue divers on Sunday. The boys have reportedly yet to meet their families, though a senior official told The Guardian that they could be reunited on Monday night.

On Sunday, officials waited until several hours after the rescued boys had been transported to hospitals to announce their rescue.

A total of eight boys were removed from the cave on Sunday and Monday.

Both used tokens like everyday passengers and it was ensured that the movement of the train is not delayed due to the special visit.

Thirteen foreign divers and five members of Thailand's elite navy SEAL unit make up the main team guiding the boys to safety through narrow, submerged passageways that claimed the life of a former Thai navy diver on Friday.

Even their mothers and fathers have been unable to visit them. Thai navy SEALs are leading the effort, but more than 90 rescue workers from around the world have been laboring in and around the dark, twisting cave.

"The weather conditions and other environments today are as good as yesterday".

The four rescued boys have been transported to a Chiang Rai hospital for treatment and medical evaluations, reported CBS.

The boys and their coach biked to the cave after soccer practice on June 23 and ventured deep inside the 6-mile-long cave, a popular tourist attraction but one that is mostly deserted in the summer because of the risks of monsoon rains.

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