What we know about the Thai cave rescue

Eight have been rescued so far in an operation that began on Sunday.

The boys are being monitored in the hospital for illnesses and other health issues from being stuck in the cave for two weeks.

A witness near the cave told the Reuters news agency that medical workers carried four people to emergency rescue vehicles. On Monday, four more were rushed to a hospital.

The boys' parents have in turn written letters to the stricken soccer team and their 25-year-old coach.

Among the ideas were drilling an escape route through the mountain, or leaving them for months until the monsoon season ended and the flooding subsided.

Rescue efforts resumed Monday morning at the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex.

Getting to and from where the boys are has been an exhausting round trip, even for the experienced divers.

The death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver on Friday, who ran out of oxygen, underscored the danger of the mission, which has been termed a "war against time and rains".

The boys were found inside the cave by British rescue divers a week ago, about 4km (2.5 miles) from the cave mouth.

Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osottanakorn said Saturday that mild weather and falling water levels in recent days had created the "perfect" conditions for an underwater evacuation.

A Thai army commander said the operation went "smoothly" but warned the next phase "will depend on all conditions" with rain forecast for the coming week.

Pad kra pao, a Thai chicken dish, was said to be the first meal that the four boys asked for.

"We all clapped and cheered", he said.

Since it is rainy season, you can expect nearly everyday you will get some type of rain.

There had been efforts to pump the water out but those were set back every time it rained. Rescue operations have halted for the night and will restart on Tuesday. A few hours later, Michael Safi, a Guardian reporter, confirmed that the sixth boy had been rescued. The rescue went faster than in practice deals, the governor said.

The second rescue attempt is believed to have started at 11am local time on Monday. The boys could be quarantined for up to 48 hours.

Four boys were rescued on Monday evening following the four who were bought safely out of the cave on Sunday. Nine people remain trapped in the cave. He had said fresh air tanks needed to be laid along the underwater route.

One of the boys, identified as Tun, wrote: "Mom and Dad, please don't worry, I am fine".

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. He said it was out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped in the cave.

"We have caves here in the Midwest that are equally unsafe, I would have to say, to the ones that are found in Thailand".

However, Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, inspector general of the public health ministry, said preliminary blood checks indicated "all kids showed signs of infection".
