Two More Boys Brought Out, Efforts on to Extract Remaining Three

Two More Boys Brought Out, Efforts on to Extract Remaining Three

"Hooyah", the Thai Navy SEALs, who have played a crucial role in the against-the-odds operation, said in a Facebook post as they announced that a total of 8 members of the "Wild Boars" football team had been rescued on Sunday and Monday.

At a news conference Monday, former Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn said the second rescue involved numerous same divers who brought the four boys out on Sunday.

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 boys brought out of the dark, winding cave on Monday are "safe and conscious", said Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue effort.

After initially being fed further power gel energy rations, the boys had moved to eating soft, boiled rice and had even asked for and received chocolate.

Before the rescue mission began, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Musk tweeted that he was designing an "escape pod" built from "the liquid oxygen transfer tube" of a SpaceX Falcon rocket that could be used as a submarine.

Four boys and their 25-year-old football coach "will be extracted on Tuesday".

The remaining five members of the Thai soccer team are being rescued from the cave today.

Thai officials have been tight-lipped about the rescue operation, and would not comment on how many people were removed Monday.

Headcam footage shows the treacherous path the rescuers must navigate in order to retrieve the stranded school boys and their coach.

Two of the first boys had mild lung infections which could be pneumonia but, he said, most of the boys were "fine, normal" and had undergone a battery of tests, X-rays, and received vaccinations.

Former Chiang Rai governor and rescue mission commander Narongsak Osotthanakorn said Monday night that it would take 20 hours to prepare for the operation, but he cautioned timings could change depending on weather and water levels. "But we will have a psychiatrist to evaluate them".

Belgium burst Brazil bubbles into World Cup semis
Such a record is nothing new for Brazil , with their defence having always been one of their keys to success at World Cups. Lukaku dropped into midfield and fed de Bruyne, who smashed home an unstoppable strike from the edge of the penalty area.

The plight of the boys, aged 11-16, and their coach, has riveted Thailand and much of the world - from the heart-sinking news they were missing to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys once they were found by the pair of British divers deep in the sprawling cave.

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

The head of the operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said a final operation would be "more challenging" because one more survivor would be brought out than the previous two operations, along with three Navy SEALs who have been accompanying them. "We should hear good news again", Narongsak said.

Several ambulances were seen leaving the rescue site at around 12:40 p.m. local time, although it was unclear if the boys were inside.

Musk said it was light enough to be carried by two divers, robust, and small enough to get through narrow gaps.
