Locals awed after Thai cave rescue captured world's attention

A Thai Navy SEAL force announced that the remaining four boys and the coach were rescued on Tuesday.

On Sunday, officials said it could "take days" to rescue the remaining boys and their coach.

After more than two weeks trapped in a cave, all 12 members of the Wild Boars football team and their coach have been rescued.

The SEALs say they're still waiting for a medic and three Navy SEALs who stayed with the boys to emerge from the cave.

The boys, aged 12-16, were the first to be extracted on Sunday and Monday, while the final four and their coach spent a 17th night inside. It took the divers about eight hours to get into the cave, reach the boys, and bring them back out. It was an incredible result considering that the boys spent nine days incommunicado, without food, until they were found, and then waited days more before embarking on an hourslong dive that even the most skilled cave divers have described as among the most risky they have attempted.

The conditions in Thailand were "extreme", he said, adding: "If any people could execute this rescue successfully, it was our team of British divers".

Scott, who lives in Thailand for part of the year, has been assisting in rescue efforts at Chiang Rai for the past four days.

Following news of the successful rescue mission of all 12 trapped Thai boys and their coach overnight, US President Trump tweeted "Such a lovely moment - all freed, great job!"

Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai Navy SEAL died Friday while replenishing the canisters.

He also told reporters that the first four boys who were rescued are now able to eat normal food.

He's one of a group of divers whose job is to transport air tanks into the tunnels for the SEAL teams.

The boys were malnourished and weak, and doctors are probably anxious they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, said W Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert.

"But we will have a psychiatrist to evaluate them", he said, while stressing that the boys are "happy and smiling".

In the past two days, eight boys were rescued and are now in a hospital isolation ward while they are tested for any possible infections. So far, their families have seen them through a glass barrier.

Last week, Musk said he was sending teams to Thailand from his private space exploration firm, SpaceX, and engineering firm, Boring Co. which is developing tunneling systems for transport projects. Thai doctors said they don't know what type of unusual illnesses the boys may have picked up in the cave.
