Amid jubilation, 4 more boys rescued from flooded Thai cave

The unprecedented mission to evacuate the "Wild Boar" football team and their coach from a flooded Thai cave entered its end game Tuesday as rescuers said they will guide the remaining four boys and their coach to freedom.

Expert divers have so far rescued eight boys from a flooded cave in Thailand, leaving another four youngsters and their football coach to be brought to safety.

This brings the total number of boys rescued from the Tham Luang cave complex up to 10.

Overnight, the entrepreneur Elon Musk posted on social media that he had personally delivered a child-sized submarine to the site which he has developed to assist with the operation, but it is unlikely to play a role.

The second phase of a rescue operation has ended for the day, with more than half of the Thai soccer team rescued from the cave.

The rescue mission is expected to continue on Tuesday.

But then oxygen started running low in the cave, and officials also anxious the little piece of real estate the boys and their coach have could be lost.

So far the group have been "kept away" from physical contact with their parents until the risk of infection is over and doctors have only allowed family and loved ones to see them through glass.

The list was by and large the intellectual brainchild of the Federalist Society, the association of conservative lawyers. The book argues that good leadership requires a measure of solitude, a rare commodity in these hyper-connected times.


At a news conference, Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, said the first four boys rescued, aged 12 to 16, are now able to eat normal food, though they can't yet take the spicy food favoured by many Thais.

Four were rescued on Monday, and the first four extracted on Sunday.

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. Authorities have said the mission could take up to four days to complete and heavy rain is forecast in the coming days.

The good news today, he said, was that the rescue team spent nine hours - two hours faster than they did a day earlier - from the time they went deeper into the cave to extract the four survivors until they emerged safely from the cave.

Twelve children and one adult were trapped in underground caves in northern Thailand on June 23rd, and a rescue mission is still taking place to bring the victims home.

The perilous rescues have involved two divers accompanying each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when searchers found them.

"We have more expertise than yesterday", he said.

Using a tube from a SpaceX Falcon rocket, Musk and a team of his SpaceX engineers created an aluminum pod light enough to be carried by two divers and small enough to squeeze through all of the cave's often exceedingly narrow passageways.

Thailand's prime minister welcomed Musk into the cave complex late Monday, with the American later tweeting a standing offer of a mini-submarine escape pod to help the remaining five leave the tunnels.
