Divers embark on mission to rescue final 5 trapped in Thai cave

Divers embark on mission to rescue final 5 trapped in Thai cave

The Associated Press reports that the families of the boys "were being kept at a distance because of fears of infection and the emaciated-looking boys were eating a rice-based porridge because they were still too weak to take regular food, authorities said".

All 12 members of a youth football team, along with their 25-year-old coach, have now been rescued from the Tham Luang cave in Thailand's Chiang Rai Province.

When asked about his first reaction as he saw the first set of boys who were rescued he admitted that he was "very scared".

British divers found them, hungry and huddled in darkness on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometres inside it, on Monday last week.

Monday's rescue mission, which saw four boys extracted before dusk and whisked to Chiang Rai hospital, took around nine hours.

Richard Harris, a world-renowned medic and diver whose presence in the dramatic rescue of the Wild Boars squad was specially requested by experts, was reportedly the last person to leave the water-logged cavern on Tuesday.

Narongsak would not identify the rescued boys. Now, two boys along with their football coach remain in the caves.

Each rescued boy was escorted through the labyrinthine cave by two divers, each of them holding an oxygen tank that feeds to the survivor's mask. Tuesday's operation began just after 10am.

The rescued boys are still being held in quarantine while lab tests are being done and have not been able to have direct contact with their parents yet. "Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out".

With rain again pounding the cave site in a mountainous region in northern Thailand on Tuesday morning, rescuers said they were aiming to bring out the remaining four boys and their coach by the evening.

Narongsak Osatanakorn said Tuesday's rescue operation began at 10.08 a.m. and involves 19 divers.

"We don't know if this is wonders or science or whatever, but the 13 wild pigs have come out of the cave", said one of the Facebook posts from the Thai Navy Seals.

"We have not been told which child has been brought out".

While the boys are in good health, two may have mild lung infection.

Eight of the 12 young footballers have now been brought out of the treacherous cave system by divers, including four who were removed on Sunday on the first day of the operation.

The second group to be rescued on Monday have low body temperature and slow heartbeat.

Four other youngsters and their soccer coach are still inside. But they also warned heavy rain could hamper their efforts.

The third and hopefully final rescue mission is now underway.
