Eleventh person rescued from Thai cave on third day of operation

Eleventh person rescued from Thai cave on third day of operation

They say the four boys and coach rescued Tuesday, after other rescues in the previous two days, are all safe.

Musk had offered mini submarine, named Wild Boar after the kids' football team, to help in the rescue operation.

They said they were waiting for a medic and three SEALs who had stayed with the boys in their dark refuge deep inside the cave complex to come out.

In a day of high drama, the remaining five boys emerged in groups as evening approached, guided out by worldwide divers and the SEALs, who have played an integral role throughout an unprecedented rescue mission.

Thai soldiers walk out from the Tham Luang cave area as operations continue for the 8 boys and their coach trapped at the cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in the Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai province on July 9, 2018. Workers have been laboring around the clock to pump water out of the cave, and authorities said Monday that heavy downpours overnight did not raise water levels inside.

Four were rescued on Sunday and another four were rescued in a faster operation on Monday, after two weeks trapped in the cave complex in north-western Thailand.

The eight boys brought out on Sunday and Monday were in good health overall and some asked for chocolate bread for breakfast, officials said, though they can't yet digest the spicy dishes favoured by many Thais.

The first four boys have taken these off, but the second group who were rescued on Monday are still wearing the eyewear.

The boys' malnutrition and exposure to unsanitary conditions inside the caves mean that they are at high risk of contracting cave sickness.

Officials previously said they were battling a "war with water and time" to save the team - warning it could be up to four days before all 13 people are brought to safety.

At least 54 die in Quebec amid extreme heat
The heat-related death toll continues to rise across Quebec as Environment Canada issues a smog and heat warning for today. He encouraged them to check on their neighbours, especially those who are vulnerable and often isolated.

They were first found by British divers more than a week ago on Monday after spending 10 days with limited food or water.

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

The plight of the group and the risky work to free them has gripped the world's attention.

Three boys and their soccer coach remain to be removed from the cave.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", he added.

Despite Musk's escape pod idea proving impractical for the rescue effort, AFP reports that a spokesman for Thailand's military junta thanked the billionaire for his offer of assistance and for taking a personal interest in the operation. Each operation has taken at least nine hours.

One boy and the football team's coach remain inside, along with a few rescue crew who have been keeping them company.

Two of the boys possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling", he said.

Former Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn, who led the rescue effort to its completion despite being reassigned halfway through, was also the subject of caricatures calling him an idol and saying he should "stand tall". "We should treat them like disaster victims, and not like theyve done anything wrong". The teams have risked their lives to deliver supplies and food to the children and their coach, and divers have been teaching the boys ― some of whom don't even know how to swim ― diving and breathing techniques to prepare them for their harrowing journey home.
