"The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe", the Thai navy SEAL unit said on its official Facebook page.

"We would like to convey our profound gratitude to all persons involved in the rescue operation, which unfortunately took the life of one of the divers".

A Reuters witness saw three people being carried out of the Tham Luang cave on stretchers separately on Tuesday, the third day of the rescue operation. It showed that many of them appeared to be in good condition. He said, "The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among man".

The four boys and soccer coach brought out Tuesday on the final day of an all-out three-day push to save all of them had recovered more quickly than the boys rescued on Sunday and Monday, Chaiwetch said.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osatanakorn said efforts were expected "quicker or at least as quick as yesterday".

Last week, Musk sent engineers from two of his companies, SpaceX and Boring Co., to assist Thai officials in the rescue effort, which comprises a large team of global diving, engineering and medical experts, among other professionals.

They were described as in "good health" and reportedly asked for a KFC as they got their appetite back.

There are concerns they may have consumed contaminated water, while bird or bat droppings could cause infections. He said they survived by drinking clean water dripping into the cave. If the rain god helps us, then we may be able to work fast. In addition, Scott's wife grew up with Sgt. Saman Kunan, a Thai rescuer who died July 6 when he ran out of air in the cave system, Variety reports.

It could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital, Jesada told a news conference.

"They're asking for chocolate".

All eight boys rescued on the first two days are being treated in an isolation ward in a Chiang Rai hospital.

People across Thailand, and the world, have cheered the rescue operation, including at the Mae Sai Prasitsart school where six of the trapped boys are students.

Thailand's prime minister welcomed Musk into the cave complex late Monday, with the American later tweeting a standing offer of a mini-submarine escape pod to help the remaining five leave the tunnels.

But he added rescuers may need more than 20 hours, to replan and replenish oxygen supplies, to be ready to mount the next mission.

Meanwhile, Manchester United invited the boys to game at their home stadium Old Trafford next season while Portugese team Benfica invited the Wild Boars to an expenses-paid week at its training academy. "Leaving here in case it may be useful in the future".
