Thailand Cave Rescue Saves 8 Children Trapped For Weeks Underground

On Tuesday, the final four boys were brought out, along with their coach.

Officials revealed on Tuesday that the first eight boys rescued from the cavern were in good health overall and some requested bread slathered with chocolate for breakfast.

They became trapped after heavy rains caused flooding. All have now been transferred to hospital.

Four were rescued Sunday and another four were rescued on Monday.

This final mission aims to rescue the last remaining 4 members of the team, as well as their coach. They began again at 11 am on Monday after the teams had stopped for the night to rest and to replenish equipment and oxygen supplies.

Musk had said that his mini submarine could be put to use during the rescue mission if necessary.

Twelve children and one adult were trapped in underground caves in northern Thailand on June 23rd, and a rescue mission is still taking place to bring the victims home.
