Four boys rescued from flooded Thai cave

Four boys rescued from flooded Thai cave

As reported by CNN, operations to extract the team from the cave began at 10am local time.

Parents say they haven't been told which boys were taken out of the cave, and have not been allowed to visit them in hospital. Thailand's interior minister said the same divers who took part in Sunday's rescue will return as they know the cave conditions and what to do.

As of this writing, four of the boys have already been rescued but operations have been put on hold to restock on supplies.

In later tweets, Musk said that the submarine he is working on has four handles in the front and four in the rear, along with four air tank connections.

Eight boys and the coach remained inside the cave as authorities paused the global effort to replenish air tanks along the treacherous exit route.

Earlier Thai's Navy SEALS said that three boys had been rescued, and officials later told Reuters and AFP that six boys had been saved. "If something changes, we will stop but we expect the operation will finish in a couple of days", he said.

"I would like to inform the public at home and those who have been giving us support all along, after 16 days, today's the day we've been waiting for, we are seeing the Wild Boars in the flesh now".

But the Chiang Rai governor supervising the mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said earlier that mild weather and falling water levels over the last few days had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation that won't last if it rains again.

The Facebook page for the Thai Navy SEALs has been posting updates on the effort.

Rains lashed the region for several hours overnight, but tapered off as the day began, leaving cloudy skies. "We will be able to bring out the boys from the cave, but we will make it as fast as possible and safely", he said.

His brother Prince George was christened at a similar time, and was baptised about 13 weeks after he was born on October 23, 2013. There is speculation that William's outgoing private secretary, Miguel Head, could be chosen to perform the role.

"Football's Coming Home. First Wild Boars Out", a headline on one online Thai paper said on Monday, referring to a song chanted by English soccer fans at the World Cup now underway in Russian Federation.

The death on Friday of a former Thai navy Seal, Saman Gunan, underlined the risks.

Rescue of youth football team and their coach from cave in Thailand enters second day.

An official reportedly told a Thai TV station on Monday morning that they didn't want to name the boys because "they're afraid it will affect the parents of kids who still remain inside". The rescue will resume today once they have been resupplied and examined by doctors.

The boys and their coach had been stranded in Tham Luang Nang Non when they went exploring in the cave after a scrimmage.

The potential for rising water and the dwindling oxygen levels added to the urgency of getting the team out.

The story of the "Wild Boars" soccer team, who first ventured into the caves more than two weeks ago before flood waters trapped them inside, has gripped Thai and global media.

The ordeal has riveted Thailand and captured the world's attention.

A team of global rescuers and experts including the United States military team are involved in the operation. He posted a video of a diver testing the device in a pool.

In letters written by the boys released Saturday, the boys appeared calm and reassured their families they were "fine".
