9News reporter Ben Avery, who is on the ground in Chiang Rai, said the rescue mission is set to kick off again this afternoon around 4pm local time or 7pm AEST.

At a news conference Monday, former Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn said the second rescue involved numerous same divers who brought the four boys out on Sunday.

Musk's efforts to assist in the rescue mission comes as the eight freed boys recuperate in hospital after spending more than two weeks seeking refuge on a tiny patch of higher ground in the Tham Luan Nang Non cave complex.

The generals and other officials overseeing the desperate operation to rescue 12 young soccer players and their coach from a flooded cave labyrinth in Thailand's sweltering far north were only half joking when they quipped Monday that success was in the hands of the rain god Phra Pirun.

However, another official, Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, inspector general of the public health ministry, said initial blood tests "showed signs of infection". "We will have to do the next mission as successfully as the one we did today".

An global team of engineers, rescue workers and divers have joined forces to help the group escape. The news comes after four boys were rescued when the operation began on Sunday. Dr. Paul Auerbach, a professor of emergency medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, told ABC News that it could take several days for doctors to replenish the nutrients the boys lost during their cave ordeal.

Thai authorities said the four boys rescued from the cave are hungry but in good health.

Meanwhile, health experts said they would conduct a check-up of the boys on parameters like oxygen, malnutrition, dehydration, post-traumatic stress, and other psychological effects. The second operation started at 11 a.m. local time Monday (midnight ET). Three more members of the team emerged before the day's nine-hour rescue efforts were halted after nightfall, according to a post on the Facebook page of Thailand's navy SEAL unit.

Two divers accompanied each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when the first searchers found them.

Officials lavished praise on the Thai and worldwide divers who executed the risky rescue mission, guiding boys who can barely swim and have no diving experience through a treacherous 4-kilometre-long (2 1/2-mile) escape route that twisted and turned and rose and fell inside the mountain cave complex.

"There's a likelihood of resilience, assuming everyone comes out, there's no fatalities, I think the worst is behind them", Adesman said.

A former military diver by the name of Saman Kunan died on Friday while trying to establish an oxygen line to the chamber where the children are waiting.

"We have more expertise than yesterday", he said. While no details were shared on their exact conditions, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, ABC News' chief medical correspondent, said doctors will likely evaluate their mental as well as physical condition.

A fifth boy was brought out earlier on Monday, a navy official said, and three more were seen being brought out over subsequent hours.
