Elon Musk proposes mini-submarine to save Thai cave boys

Four Of The Boys Trapped In Thai Cave Rescued

Thailand's Meteorological Department said there was a 60 percent chance of rain Monday with thunderstorms forecast throughout the week.

Reuters could not confirm the identity of the two people brought out in the evening and the chief of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, asked about the two, declined to comment, saying a news conference would be held soon.

"Good night. Hooyah." The boys and their coach, whose team is known as the Wild Boars, became stranded when they were exploring the cave after a practice game on June 23.

The group was found nine days later in a cramped chamber 2.5 miles inside the cave system by two British volunteer rescue divers.

Looming rain was one of the main enemies of the operation, threatening to flood the cave complex in mountainous northern Thailand, although a bewildering array of other dangers could also doom the escape plans. Thai Navy SEALs and worldwide cave diving experts brought out four boys Sunday, and the operation is continuing today.

After the four boys were removed from the cave, heavy rain started falling.

Though it rained again Sunday, it did not affect the water levels in the cave, said Narongsak Osatanakorn, the leader of the command center in charge of the rescue operation.

On Sunday, four of the boys were extracted in a hard mission involving 13 foreign divers and five members of Thailand's navy SEAL unit.

As many as four boys stuck in the Tham Luang cave had been rescued on Sunday.

All four boys brought out of the cave on Monday were taken by ambulance to a waiting helicopter which ferried them to hospital.

Workers have been laboring around the clock to pump water out of the cave, and officials said Monday that despite heavy downpours overnight, water levels inside the cave did not rise.

Interior Minister Anupong Paochinda told reporters the rescued boys were in good health in hospital but did not give further details.

There was no immediate word on their conditions.

However, many have been asking the very reasonable question of why the boys were in the cave in the first place?

Among these were that none of the boys had scuba diving experience, and that they could easily panic while swimming underwater in darkness.

"The four children are well at Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital".

"This morning they said they are hungry, and they wanted phad kra pao", he said.

Olivero told Paddy Daly on the VOCM Morning Show that because they're children, they may be more resilient to the challenges ahead.

"The weather conditions and other environments today are as good as yesterday".

A rescuer arrives outside the Tham Luang cave complex after Thailand's government instructed members of the media to move out urgently, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 8, 2018. One was that it was unknown how safe and dry the area where they had taken shelter would stay as Thailand's rainy season, which lasts until at least late October, picks up pace.

By Mondayevening, the boys were able to joke, laugh, and have normal conversation, doctors said.

The only way to bring the boys and their coach out of the cave is by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, as well as oxygen-depleted air.
