Thai cave rescue: four boys rescued while others remain trapped

An ambulance was seen leaving the scene immediately afterward early Monday evening.

"They will be kept away from their parents for a while because we are concerned about infections", Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said at a news conference about the boys who were rescued on Sunday.

The boys and their coach went exploring in the massive Tham Luang Nang Non cave on June 23 after a soccer practice, and were cut off when a rainstorm flooded the cave. They had been missing for 10 days before they were discovered. Teams had to bring in industrial pumps for the operation since parts of the cave were flooded by the rains.

Another concern for the remaining boys is their health and conditioning to make the arduous trip after nine days without food before they were found by navy divers.

"He added: "They can not decide how many of them will be able to come out for the first operation". "If you ask me how long it will take, no one can answer that".

However, the rain shortly recommenced, putting a halt to the rescue operation. That's the name of the young boys' team.

Narongsak said Sunday morning two divers would escort each of the boys out of the cave.

After pondering for days how to get the 13 out, a rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

Two of them have been taken by ambulance to hospital while another two were airlifted, but none of them were stretchered out.

His visit with relatives and rescue officials last week was criticised by some Thais as opportunistic as his government faced pro-democracy protests in the capital Bangkok in recent months.

The story of the "Wild Boars" soccer team, who first ventured into the caves more than two weeks ago before flood waters trapped them inside, has gripped Thai and global media.

Daily newspaper La Nuova Sardegna said the 57-year-old Clooney was heading to a film set a auto hit his motorbike. The two were married in 2014 at the Aman Canal Grande resort in Venice, Italy.


Applause erupted as Mr Narongsak said he had met the children and their health is "perfect".

"If we wait and the rain comes in the next few days we will be exhausted again from pumping and our readiness would drop".

He also says the families of the boys have been informed about the risky mission. An update Saturday from the Thai navy said three navy SEALs were with the boys and their coach, one a doctor.

Chief of the rescue mission Narongsak Osottanakorn addressed reporters at the end of the 17-day mission, arriving at a media centre to a round of applause.

The boys had to learn the basics of swimming and diving before they could start the 2.5 mile journey. The second boy came out 10 minutes later.

The only way to bring them out is by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, as well as oxygen-depleted air.

He has 30 years' diving experience and was involved in the retrieval of the body of stunt diver Agnes Milowka who died at Millicent, South Australia, in 2011.

This particularly narrow section is also further complicated by it being situated on a sharp upward bend in the passage.

The group of 12 boys has been trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand for two weeks.

The mission to save all the trapped is a race against the clock with heavy rain expected this week which would again flood the tunnels with fast-flowing, rising water.
