Third mission underway at Thailand cave, aims to rescue all left

RESCUE Thailand

The eight boys who have left the cave are being treated in an isolation ward in a Chiang Rai hospital. Medics appeared to remove one person on a stretcher but hid the person's identity behind multiple white umbrellas. It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said. Officials have confirmed at least two more boys have been rescued from the cave.

However the boys - aged between 12 and 16 - would remain in quarantine until doctors were sure they had not contracted any infections from inside the cave.

Chief of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, declined to comment on the identity of the four people brought out in the evening, saying updates would be supplied at a news conference that is scheduled to be held late on Monday. Rescue officials were hopeful that the final four boys and their coach would be rescued Tuesday.

It could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital, Jedsada told a news conference. The coach is aged 25. There was some rain on Sunday, which caused some water to go into the cave, but officials were able to pump an nearly equal amount of water out.

The plight of the boys and their coach has drawn worldwide attention since they became trapped when they went into the cave after soccer practice on June 23.

Elite divers hauled 4 more young footballers out of a flooded Thai cave on Monday, July 9, authorities said, bringing to 8 the number saved in a stunning rescue mission but still leaving 5 others trapped.

Both groups were brought out of the cave with gauze over their eyes because of their prolonged stint 3.2 kilometres deep inside the cave, Dr Chokedamrongsuk said, and had inititally worn sunglasses at the hospital to soften their exposure to the light of the outside world.

He said the second group of four boys would undergo detailed testing of their eyes, nutrition levels and mental health, with blood samples to be sent to Bangkok to test for any infectious diseases. Officials are considering allowing the boys parents visit through a partition, according to Good Morning America.

The boys and their coach went exploring in the massive Tham Luang Nang Non cave on June 23 after a soccer practice, and were cut off when a rainstorm flooded the cave. Torrential rainfall and flooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days.

Reuters reported that eight players have been rescued in unsafe attempts by a world-class global team of divers.

They were celebrating a second triumph after divers guided four more boys through tight passages and flooded caverns to safety Monday. He had said fresh air tanks needed to be laid along the underwater route. He said experience gained during the successful extractions in the preceding two days would allow them to work faster and more efficiently.

"He was a very capable SEAL and a triathlete who liked adventure sports", the Thai navy SEALs wrote in a Facebook post. They eventually found a dry landing spot, where they waited for nine days before being found by two British divers.

The plan is "set for four people", Osatanakorn said. Last week, a former Thai navy diver died while preparing for the operation. It is rainy season in Thailand at the moment, with torrential downpours that appear out of nowhere dominating the weather patterns.

The other, and perhaps more worrying, was that oxygen levels in the complex were falling close to risky levels.
