The rescue operation, which began Sunday, included a team of worldwide divers and the Thai Navy SEALs.

Officials have not been commenting on the rescue mission as it has been taking place, so it was not clear what condition those brought out on Tuesday were in. Four boys and their 25-year-old soccer coach remain deep in the cave, an ordeal that has lasted more than two weeks after they were trapped inside by floods.

The Thai Navy SEALs said they still were waiting on four SEAL personnel to come out of the cave after they stayed with the boys on a dry shelf inside the flooded cave.

Rescue teams walk inside cave complex where 12 boys and their soccer coach went missing, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, in northern Thailand, July 2, 2018.

According to a document released by the Thai authorities, the plan was that two divers would accompany each of the boys, who were being brought out in groups.

The boys and their coach have now all been taken to hospital after the three-day evacuation that was a battle against heavy, predicted rain.

"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".

Elon Musk posted photos and video from inside the cave in Thailand where four boys and their soccer coach remain trapped.

Doctors attending to the eight boys who were rescued Sunday and Monday said they are generally in good health.

The Thai navy SEALs - along with the worldwide team of divers who traveled to Mae Sai, the town nearest the cavern, to help - have quickly become immortalized as modern-day superheroes in various pieces of artwork. One diver was in front, holding an oxygen tank for the boy and another diver was behind ensuring the safety of the boy.

The boys were malnourished and weak, and doctors are probably anxious they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, said W Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert.

"MUFC is relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are now safe", Manchester United have said in a statement.

It is believed that the second lot of boys are in better health than the first four who were brought out first because they were deemed the "weakest". But family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass barrier.

Musk said the submarine, which is made from the liquid oxygen tube of SpaceX's Falcon rocket, is small enough to fit through the cave system's narrow passageways.
