Footage from inside Thailand cave shows trapped boys' escape route

"All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Navy SEAL unit, which led the rescue, said on its Facebook page, adding all were safe.

The plight of the boys and their coach has riveted Thailand and much of the world - from the heart-sinking news they were missing to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys when they were found 10 days later by a pair of British divers. Rescue officials were hopeful that the final four boys and their coach would be rescued Tuesday.

Thirteen worldwide cave divers joined five Thai Navy SEALs in the unsafe rescue operation.

The ninth boy was carried from the cave on a stretcher shortly AFTER 11:00 SAST, Reuters and CNN reported.

Officials were not immediately available to comment on who had been brought out, and it was not clear what condition they were in. He said, "The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among man".

Officials heading the rescue operation had said they were preparing a third rescue mission.

Boys rescued from Thailand's Tham Luang Cave had to turn down an invitation to the World Cup to remain under medical care.

Eight boys have so far been rescued from the cave, four on Sunday and another four on Monday.

Experts warned that drinking contaminated water or otherwise being exposed to bird or bat droppings in the cave could lead to unsafe infections. "We can see that everything is ok as they're eating well", he said.

Rescuers working at a cave site in northern Thailand have suspended operations for the day after bringing four more boys out of the flooded cave system on Monday.

But scattered monsoon rains continued to risk percolating through the limestone cave walls to flood the tunnels with water. "There was only a tiny bit of hope, but that's all we had to work with". Doctors, though, said they'll have to remain in the hospital for treatment for at least a week, insisting they can watch the big game on TV.

One of the more hard parts in getting out of the cave system is a bottleneck that is only 38cm by 72cm at its smallest - so narrow that divers have to remove their tanks to fit through the gap. At least one publisher told the paper that she'd be interested in reading a manuscript that includes details about the boys' coach, a former monk who reportedly taught the children meditation in the cave and gave up his limited supply of food and water so they could have more.

The four boys rescued first are "well, they're up and about", Sky News' southeast Asia correspondent, Siobhan Robbins, said.

In his letter when he was trapped, Ake apologised to the parents for taking the boys into the cave network, but several parents replied to say they did not blame him.
