Ambulance Leaves Thai Cave on 2nd Day of Rescue Operation

Rescue Operation To Save The Thai Football Team Is Underway Four boys rescued from Thailand cave; rescue efforts will continue tonight

The four boys guided from the cave Sunday in an urgent and risky operation that involved them diving through the cave's dark, tight and twisting passages were happy and in good health, authorities said.

A team of 90 expert divers - 40 from Thailand and 50 from overseas - have been involved in the intricate rescue operation. The only way to reach them was by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, as well as oxygen-depleted air.

"The operation is being supervised by the Thai authorities". The death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver on Friday, who ran out of oxygen, underscored the danger of the mission, which has been termed a "war against time and rains".

Over the weekend, the Thai government successfully rescued four boys who had been trapped in the cave since June 23. They are then taken to hospital in Chiang Rai. Rescue teams had to take a break to restock their oxygen supply.

An ambulance carries the sixth person rescued from Tham Luang cave. Each team has its own helicopter and ambulance, along with at least one doctor, two nurses and a paramedic.

"All conditions are still as good as they were yesterday", Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osattanakorn said, as relayed by the AP.

The children's families have not been told which boys have been rescued.

Thai authorities said the parents of the four rescued boys are still being kept from physical contact with them due to fear of infections.

On Sunday night, Must tweeted that the submarine would arrive about 11 p.m. on Monday local time. It takes several hours.

Parents say they haven't been told which boys were taken out of the cave, and have not been allowed to visit them in hospital.

Eight boys are still inside the cave and along with the team coach.

Crews are rushing to rescue the boys before the cave complex is inundated once again by seasonal rains.

"We have not been told which child has been brought out".

Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda had said early Monday that the same divers who took part in Sunday's rescue would return to extricate the others as they know the cave conditions and what to do.

Officials will be meeting late Monday to discuss Tuesday's plan. "But there are caves where. explorers could go in and be trapped by rising water during like a heavy rain and trapped in an air pocket", Brick said.

Four were rescued over the weekend.

Elon Musk has offered his assistance and has floated plans to save the soccer team stranded in a Thai cave network.

The weather in Chiang Rai, Thailand, where the boys and their coach are trapped in a cave, is "actually quite dry", said CBS News foreign correspondent Ben Tracy.

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

Musk posted videos on Twitter of the aluminum sub being tested at a swimming pool Sunday midafternoon California time.

Reporters at the scene said a sixth boy had been extracted, but officials have yet to confirm it.

Early on Sunday morning, all media and non-essential staff were cleared from the cave site area as divers, medics and military began moving into place.

Just a few kilometres from the lush forest that covers the mountainside of the Tham Luang cave, four boys dressed in their white school uniforms shoot hoops on an outdoor basketball court in Mae Sai.
