Thai Navy SEALs, medic give thumbs up after cave rescue

Royal Thai Navy shows a group of Thai Navy divers in Tham Luang cave during rescue operations

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what".

Thailand's prime minister, Prayuth Chan-o-cha, said the boys were given anti-anxiety medication to help with their rescue.

The boys spent the time regaining their strength with food and drink and learning to dive for the unsafe mission, while rescuers pumped as much water as possible from the lengthy network of caverns.

Experts have previously weighed in on the Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company CEO's proposed plans, and said Musks' team may not be of much use due to huge numbers of experts already working on the rescue.

Cheers erupted at a local government office where dozens of volunteers and journalists were awaiting news of whether the intricate and high-risk rescue mission for the final boys stranded in a Thai cave network had succeeded.

The 31cm-wide custom submarine would make the boys passive participants in the rescue and could potentially shorten the journey, which took divers a total of nine hours in the second successful rescue operation on Monday. "All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Thai SEALs wrote in a Facebook post shared by almost 80,000 people on Tuesday.

Royal Thai Navy Seals confirmed the rescue operation was complete on Tuesday afternoon (UK time) after three days of heroic efforts by divers, with all of those trapped carried out alive.

It took three missions over three days for a crack team of divers to guide the group one-by-one through the 4-kilometre-long labyrinth.

The first eight boys, who were rescued on Sunday and Monday, are in good health overall and have been demanding fried rice and chocolate bread since their rescue, Jesada Chokdamrongsuk, Thailand's health ministry permanent secretary, told reporters.

It is still unclear why the young coach made a decision to lead his boys some two-and-a-half miles into the forbidden cave system on the cusp of the rainy season, but when the group did become trapped he demonstrated leadership and maturity far beyond his years. He said Tuesday's rescue attempt began just after 10 in the morning, local time, and involved 19 divers.

Heavy rainfall and flooding near the cave prevented rescuers from reaching them for nearly 10 days.

Some family members have been allowed to visit the boys in hospital, but are only allowed to observe them from behind a glass window. The governor of Chiang Rai state has been heading the rescue effort.

Musk tweeted that he was leaving the mini-submarine in Thailand "in case it may be useful in the future".
