Ambulance leaves site of Thai cave rescue

Ambulance leaves site of Thai cave rescue

On Sunday, officials decided they could no longer wait, saying conditions were "as ideal as they will be" for a rescue attempt.

A Thai well wisher puts a poster to pray for boys and their football coach.

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.

The 12 boys and their coach were trapped after heavy rain in northern Thailand on June 23 but their rescue has now been completed.

Three members of the SEAL unit and an army doctor, who has stayed with the boys since they were found, were the last people due to come out of the cave, the unit said.

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around in the hospital.

They are part of a youth soccer team known as the Wild Boars.

President Donald Trump is congratulating the Thai navy SEALs and their global partners who rescued a youth soccer team and their coach after more than two weeks of entrapment in a cave.

Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich added: "Bayern is delighted to hear of the successful rescue of the young football team and their coach in Thailand". Each team member has to spend time in isolation for fear of spreading infection; health officials expect all of them to be in the hospital for at least a week. So far, their families have seen them through a glass barrier. Six of the 12 boys on the soccer team attend her school.

Each of the boys, ages 11 to 16 and with no diving experience, was guided out by a pair of divers in the three-day intricate and high-stakes operation.

Meanwhile, Dele Alli , who scored England's second goal, said it was a great team performance. He also converted a penalty in normal time in the last-16 win over Colombia .

Nearly all of the rescued were flown in helicopters, then driven in ambulances to a Chiang Rai hospital.

Each round trip took around 10 hours on average, but the final day of mission was fastest, with the last five confirmed out in about nine hours.

Musk, the billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, Inc., vowed to help rescue efforts by designing a mini-submarine that could navigate through the cave's tight canals.

He posted video of divers escorting the pod during testing in a Los Angeles swimming pool. Thai and foreign divers safely led the other eight youngsters out of the cave earlier in the week.

Authorities then gathered 90 divers, 50 of them foreigners, to help extract the boys out of a claustrophobic tunnel network that in some places was completely filled with water and so narrow that they could only be squeezed through.
