At Least 4 Boys Rescued From Thailand Cave

Love To Mum Dad...: From Boys Trapped In Thai Cave Letters Of Hope

Four boys of 13 trapped in a northern Thailand cave have been brought out through an underwater evacuation, a member of the rescue team said on condition of anonymity Sunday.

Twelve youths aged from 11 to 16 were trapped, while a massive worldwide rescue effort has been mounted including Thai Navy divers and foreign volunteers.

The Thai Navy said Saturday that three SEALs, one a doctor, were with the boys and coach.

"Our job is not completely done". "Finding the boys doesn't mean we've finished our mission. The rest of the kids are in the same spot", head of the rescue operation Narongsak Osottanakorn said.

Earlier, the Thai Navy SEAL confirmed that four boys from the soccer team had been rescued from the Tham Luang cave, according to its official Facebook page.

The hordes of global and local media have been kept back from the cave and the hospital in Chiang Rai where the boys are believed to be under observation.

The boys and the coach will dive out of the cave one at a time, each accompanied by a member of a team of worldwide and Thai divers, officials said.

Boonpiam, a seventh-grader, was the first to emerge from the cave aided by divers because he was the worst off, local media reported.

The mini-submarine created by SpaceX engineers may not play a role in the crisis it was designed for - the Thai cave rescue drama that's now speeding to a resolution - but it could be a lifesaver for future space missions.

Richard Harris has been assisting Thai rescue workers at the scene.

"There are two obstacles, which are water and time", Narongsak said. He would ferry the boys to and from home when their parents could not, and took responsibility for them as if they were his own family.

The talented Brazilians were by far the stronger team in the match, but Mexico had chances to make it more of a game. The goal made Brazil the World Cup all-time scoring leader with 227 goals, surpassing Germany with 226.

"We are giving them a physical examination".

Four of the Thai boys are now out of the cave.

This is a hugely high-profile rescue attempt and Thailand knows the world is watching.

The boys were immediately taken to the hospital for evaluation after being trapped underground for almost two weeks.

Thai rescuers are being assisted by an global team comprising experts from China, Australia, the United States and Britain. "We want to evacuate all 13 people as soon as possible but I don't want to specify any day and date", said Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha (above, at right).

The toughest part is about halfway out at a section named "T-Junction", which is so tight the divers have to take off their air tanks to get through.

Eight boys and the coach remained inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave as authorities paused the worldwide effort to replenish air tanks along the treacherous exit route.

The operation, which started on Sunday morning, will take two to three days to complete, as each round trip from the rescue camp in the cave to the site where the boys and their coach are located takes 11 hours.

With eight boys and the coach still trapped in the cave, Thair authorities are facing a race against time, amid concerns of further monsoon rain.

Water levels inside the massive Tham Luang cave complex in northern Chiang Rai province dropped by around a foot on Saturday and are at their lowest levels since the team became trapped June 23.
