Thai soldiers prepare for the second day of an operation to bring football team out of Tham Luang cave complex

Whilst four boys and their coach remain trapped in the flooded cave system awaiting rescue, the freed members of the soccer team have been quarantined in their own hospital ward.

Thai authorities are being tight-lipped about who was inside an ambulance seen leaving the site of a flooded cave Monday, as they were the night before when four of the 13 people trapped inside the underground complex were rescued. He said recent rains had not affected water levels in the cave and conditions were expected to be "as good as they were on Sunday", reported The Guardian.

A fifth boy was brought out earlier on Monday, a navy official said.

The mission to rescue a group of boys and their soccer coach trapped in the flooded cave since June 23 resumed hours earlier on Monday.

The risky bid to rescue the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - resumed after a break on Sunday night to replenish oxygen supplies and make other preparations deep inside the cave complex in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai province.

The boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach became stranded when they went exploring inside after a practice game.

The diver, the first fatality of the rescue effort, was working in a volunteer capacity and died on a mission to place air canisters along the passage to where the boys are, necessary for divers to safely travel the five- to six-hour route.

The extraction of the four on Monday followed a similar pattern to the previous day, with the youngsters emerging in quick succession just before nightfall after navigating a treacherous escape route of more than four kilometres (2.5 miles).

Four boys were brought out of the cave Monday and are "safe and conscious", Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said.

How to watch the semi-finals
I pray and I would give anything in the world that this squad eventually "confines us to history". We want those who are 100-per-cent match fit.


Perhaps those prayers were answered, as hours after the last team members were rescued, the heavens opened and the monsoonal rains thundered down.

The four boys pulled from the cave Sunday in an urgent and unsafe operation that involved them diving through the cave's tight and twisting passages were in good health.

The second group of four rescued on Monday are aged 12 to 14. "We can't visit our boys in hospital because they need to be monitored for 48 hours", Somboon told Reuters.

But bringing out the remaining four boys and their coach could take more than one operation, Narongsak warned.

Doctors expect the boys to be in the hospital for about seven days, although they could be out sooner if their bloodwork comes back negative for abnormalities. Two of them possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling", he said.

The trapped boys have been divided into groups.

A hospital spokesperson told media the priority was to make sure the children were safe.

Soldiers arrive outside the Tham Luang cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 8, 2018.

At least nine ambulances loaded with stretchers and blue oxygen tanks waited in the cave area on Monday. "I can help him with his homework", he said. Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was visiting all eight in the nearby hospital that they were helicoptered to, he said. On top of all the concerns inside the cave, Thailand's rainy season is looming. They were able to make recommendations on things like changing cabling layout and adjusting the flow of hoses to improve pumping power. The most risky part is the first kilometer, during which the divers and boys are required to squeeze through a narrow, flooded channel.
