4 More Boys Brought Out of Flooded Thai Cave Bringing Total Rescued to 8More

Four divers who stayed with the group were still to emerge.

.

US President Donald Trump tweeted: "On behalf of the United States, congratulations to the Thai Navy SEALs and all on the successful rescue of the 12 boys and their coach from the treacherous cave in Thailand".

He said that a second rescue operation was planned for 10-20 hours" later, as the team had "used all the oxygen', which would need replenishing before they could resume.

VideoOne of the divers on the rescue team in Thailand explains the difficulty of getting the boys out.

He also paid a tribute to former Thai navy SEAL, Saman Kunan, who died last week during the rescue mission. Now, two boys along with their football coach remain in the caves.

Pure Flix Entertainment, an Arizona-based Christian film studio, said it's seeking the movie rights to the harrowing mission to rescue the soccer team and their 25-year-old coach from the flooded cave.

The three Navy seals and a doctor who accompanied the boys in the cave complex are still inside.

Her majesty the Queen was also in attendance dressed as stylishly as she always does in strong bold colours. Accompanying the duchess was Prince William , who held Princess Charlotte and Prince George by the hand.

Officials are hoping that the final phase of the rescue can be completed in four or five hours, Narongsak said, according to Thai Public Broadcasting. Tuesday's operation began just after 10am. Medical officials told reporters that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and "seem to be in high spirits". One of the boys lies on it covered in a metallic, reflective material.

"We did something nobody thought possible", the acting governor of Chiang Rai province, Narongsak Osatanakorn, said once the 18-day ordeal was over.

Eight of the boys were brought out on stretchers over the first two days - four on Sunday and four on Monday. Jesada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jesada said.

However the boys - aged between 12 and 16 - would remain in quarantine until doctors were sure they had not contracted any infections from inside the cave. Each of the rescued boys has been guided through the dark, narrow cave by a pair of divers. They will be able to eat normally this evening. The boys then walked from Chamber 3 to the mouth of the cave, which has been mostly drained over the last few days despite heavy rains.

He said Scott has also been in Chiang Rai for several days to help with the mission and to interview divers and other rescue workers at the scene. It is now unclear whether Musk or his technology will be used in the rescue efforts, but Musk confirmed via tweet that the submarine is in Thailand and ready to be used if needed.

A team of Dutch water specialists from Friesland travelled to Thailand to support the drainage efforts, while Elon Musk left a mini-submarine "made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after [the] kids" soccer team'.
