Out of 13 Rescued from Flooded Cave in Thailand

Out of 13 Rescued from Flooded Cave in Thailand

The boys, whose names have not been revealed, are being treated at Chiang Rai Prachanukraw Hospital in Muang district. Medics appeared to remove one person on a stretcher but hid the person's identity behind multiple white umbrellas.

The rescue operation began Sunday and has been progressing rapidly. But rescue officials were also anxious about dwindling oxygen levels in the cave.

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

The remaining four boys and their coach will be brought out by the end of Tuesday, according to Mr Osottanakorn. Four more boys were pulled from the cave that day - the first emerging before 5 p.m. No boys would be discharged for at least seven days. "We will check later today whether their eyes have adjusted to light", said Dr Jesada.

"We thank the God of the rain". The coach is aged 25. Workers have been laboring around the clock to pump water out of the cave, and authorities said Monday that heavy downpours overnight did not raise water levels inside.

The 12 boys and their coach entered the cave on June 23 after soccer practice and were subsequently trapped by rising floodwaters.

Eight boys have been rescued in total so far and are recuperating in a hospital after another four were brought out by divers on the second day of a high-stakes rescue operation, a top official said.

He said the group can eat, move about, and talk.

Dr Jesada said that when the first four arrived they went through all the necessary health checks including blood tests, lung X-rays, heart, eye and mental tests.

The boys will remain in quarantine because of a fear of infection, and it's understood they have only been able to speak to family members through a window.

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to risky lows and the prospect of heavy rains flooding the area completely, authorities decided they had to move quickly, and take the group out through the water-filled tunnels.

Following a similar pattern as the previous two days, the divers ventured back into the cave at 10:00am today, Narongsak told reporters.

Reuters reported that eight players have been rescued in unsafe attempts by a world-class global team of divers.

The first group of four evacuated on Sunday are aged between 14 and 16 and the second group rescued on Monday are aged between 12 and 14. He said rescuers told the parents that the "strongest children" would be brought out first.

The Thai Navy Seals, who are leading the rescue effort, confirmed the rescue of the ninth boy.

As dusk falls four more boys are rescued. The rescue effort is slowed somewhat by the fact that the team must replenish supplies and oxygen tanks that line the 2.5-mile route out of the cave.

Tragedy strikes: a diver helping to establish an air line to the boys dies after passing out while returning from the chamber, raising serious doubts over the safety of attempting a rescue.

Authorities on Tuesday were planning for their final push.
