Divers Hope To Rescue Remaining Boys Trapped In Thai Cave

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to unsafe lows and the prospect of heavy rains flooding the area completely, authorities decided they had to move quickly and take the group out through the water-filled tunnels.

"Two days, eight Boars", read a Facebook post by the Thai Navy SEALS of the dramatic rescue that began Sunday, more than two weeks after the members of the Wild Boars soccer team were trapped.

Nargonsak said this phase may take longer than the previous two rescue missions, which took up to 11 hours.

"Any way we can help involve them in their own rescue is beneficial", he said. 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.

Then it will depend on the weather. The group became stranded after torrential monsoon rains caused the system to flood and were missing for nine days before being discovered by two British divers early last week. "And it is up to the environment".

"It's not a given to be able to work together and ask other for help". After Monday's rescues, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha visited the eight freed boys in the hospital where they had been taken by helicopter.

They got stuck when exploring the cave complex after soccer practice and a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels.

And the operation to rescue the remaining children, plus their coach, was completed on Tuesday, the Thai Navy Seals confirmed.

But the death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver who ran out of oxygen in the cave on Friday underscored the danger of the journey.

The final part of the operation to rescue a boys' football team from a cave in Thailand has begun.

Authorities have said the boys are being held close to divers and wear oxygen masks to enable normal breathing.

"The rescue has been huge", said volunteer helper Somjit Saenset, 56. "I felt like he was one of my own children and I wanted him to come home".

"I can't tell", he said.

Among these were that none of the boys had scuba diving experience and that they could easily panic while swimming underwater across twisted passageways in darkness. Rescuers say they will extract the rest of the squad and their coach on Tuesday as heavy rains return.

Chief of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, declined to comment on the identity of the four people brought out in the evening, saying updates would be supplied at a news conference that is scheduled to be held late on Monday.

Medical teams previously said concerns included hypothermia and an airborne lung infection known as "cave disease", which is caused by bat and bird droppings.

"We expect that everybody will be out today, the children and coach and everybody will be out today", Osatanakorn told reporters.
