Dangerous Thai Cave Rescue Resumes: More Already Saved On Monday

Dangerous Thai Cave Rescue Resumes: More Already Saved On Monday

A Thai military official later confirmed that a boy had emerged around 5 p.m. local time (6 a.m. ET).

Narongsak said 13 foreign divers and five Thai navy SEALs took part in the key leg of Sunday's rescue: taking the boys from where they have been sheltering and through dark, tight and twisting passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents.

They were discovered alive last Monday deep inside the flooded cave system.

Eight of 12 boys who were tapped inside a flooded cave in Thailand have now been brought to the surface following a second round of rescue operations on Monday.

Asked whether the remaining four "Wild Boars" team and their coach would come out at the same time in the next rescue effort, he said: "It depends on the plan".

Four ambulances were seen leaving the Thai cave site Monday.

The children's families have not been told which boys have been rescued.

About two hours later, the third and fourth boys were pulled from the cave 10 minutes apart, he said.

Authorities have refused to confirm names reported in local media, but in the small town of Mae Sai where the cave is located, it's all anybody is talking about.

Officials said Sunday that it may "take days" to bring all 12 boys and their coach to the surface. It is about two kilometres from the entrance.

The rescuers also had cassettes, in which the children were placed, to help transport them safely in areas that were flooded. With the assistance of divers, they swam out with oxygen tanks, along a 2-mile long rope guiding them out.

In the meantime, Afghan officials have told AFP that the incident has taken place in southern Uruzgan province of Afghanistan. On New Year's Day, a US soldier was killed and four others wounded in combat operations in the eastern province of Nangarhar.

A spokesman for Musk's Boring Co. said Sunday that the company has four engineers who are "offering support in any way the [Thailand] government deems useful".

A heavy but brief downpour hit the area Monday morning, but authorities said that did not change the water level in the cave, as workers continued to pump water out.

Those rescued from the depths of the cave complex have been helicoptered off the Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital, about 70 km (40 miles) away.

Relatives said the boys had been inside the labyrinthine complex during the dry season.

However, the experience can't be comfortable, and I don't even want to begin to imagine what it must be like for the person inside that narrow space, especially being a kid who's been trapped in that mountain for more than two weeks.

Cave rescue experts consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving. Previously, round trips through the cave network would take about 11 hours.

Rescue mission chief Narongsak Osotthanakorn on Monday said the operation on the second day started at 11am.

Ambulances were on standby to receive the next batch of boys who are expected to be plucked from the cave. Onlookers were seen watching and cheering as they drove by.

Thailand cave rescue: How did they get trapped?

Fox News broke in to report Monday morning that the fifth boy has been rescued from the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand, where a group has been trapped for more than two weeks. A retired Thai Navy SEAL assisting with the operation died Friday after running out of oxygen, underlining the danger of the rescue.
