Rescue Mission Successful! Entire Thai Soccer Team Evacuated from Cave

Rescue Mission Successful! Entire Thai Soccer Team Evacuated from Cave

British divers found the 13, hungry and huddled in darkness on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometres inside the complex, on Monday last week.

When they arrived at the hospital, a crowd of well-wishers gathered outside, cheering and applauding them just as they had done earlier when the last rescued boys and their coach were driven into the hospital emergency bay. With little to no experience swimming or breathing under water, divers were somehow able to successfully lead them out of the cave complex in a delicate operation that saw the boys and the coach tethered to divers. Each team member has to spend time in isolation for fear of spreading infection; health officials expect all of them to be in the hospital for at least a week.

Eight more boys had been rescued in the previous two days after becoming trapped by rising water levels.

About 100 people were involved with the rescue efforts.

Two more boys are rescued from the cave.

The footballers still awaiting rescue are about another two kilometres further in, at a point very hard to access.

The Guardian reported on Tuesday afternoon local time that a ninth and 10th boy had been pulled from the cave.

Scott, who's married to a Thai woman and spends three months a year in Thailand, said they were not pressuring people over the interviews. But rescue officials were also anxious about dwindling oxygen levels in the cave. Four more, plus the coach, are set to be brought out Tuesday. Medical officials told reporters Tuesday that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and talking.

"#MUFC is relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are now safe". He said a medic and three SEALS in the cave, who've been looking after those trapped, will also come out.

The Thai navy SEALs added in a Facebook post: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what". They entered the cave after a soccer practice and soon found themselves trapped when heavy rains flooded the complex.

They also celebrated when the last SEALs exited the cave safely today after all of the boys were rescued.

Asked at a news conference in Bangkok if the boys had been sedated, Prayuth said: "Who would chloroform them?"

Four boys and their soccer coach remain in the cave.

Thai soldiers walk away from Tham Luang cave after the rescue effort was complete.

After divers brought out four of the boys Monday evening, authorities indicated the rescue operation would continue for a third day.

Musk had said that his mini submarine could be put to use during the rescue mission if necessary. Technology billionaire Elon Musk went into the cave on Monday and left the rescue team with a "kid-sized" submarine his company SpaceX had built, Thailand's interior Minister Anupong Paochinda said.

In a gesture of kindness, English soccer giants Manchester United have invited the Thai soccer team to Old Trafford to watch them play in its upcoming season.

He posted video of divers escorting the pod during testing in a Los Angeles swimming pool.
