Amid jubilation, 4 more boys rescued from flooded Thai cave

Elon Musk shares videos of 'kid-size submarine' built to assist in Thai cave rescue- Watch

Narongsak Osotthanakorn said the boy's rescue involved numerous same divers who brought the four boys out Sunday.

Somboon Sompiangjai, 38, the father of one of the trapped boys, said parents were told by rescuers ahead of Sunday's operation the "strongest children" would be brought out first.

The same elite divers involved in Sunday's rescue would conduct the next one, given their knowledge of the cave conditions, Thailand's interior minister said in a statement.

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

The Thai Navy Seal unit celebrated the successful rescue of members of the Wild Boars football team, writing on their official Facebook page: "2 days, 8 Wild Boars". The search and rescue operation has involved dozens of worldwide experts and rescuers, including a USA military team. Thais have been fixated on the crisis, hoping desperately for the safe return of the boys and their 25-year-old coach, since they became trapped in the Tham Luang cave complex on June 23 because of rising waters.

Rescuers chose to go ahead with the operation to free them because of fears that waters would rise again.

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was scheduled to visit the site later Monday, after first traveling south to Phuket, where a boat capsizing resulted in 42 deaths, mostly tourists from China.

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". "From what I've seen in the clip, they did look skinny", he said. "(But) the mission is not over yet", Prayut said.

But Narongsak said earlier that recent mild weather and falling water levels had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation.

These links extend to their respective football teams , who meet on Tuesday evening to contest a place in the World Cup final. Apart from this one change, Martinez might opt to go in with the same team that cruised past Brazil. "I'm pleased for him".

The boys are being escorted out of the complex cave system via a team of divers.

"Adolescents are especially social creatures, and having friends with them as well as their coach would be a tremendous help", said David Spiegel, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford University's medical school.

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the first four boys freed.

The aide, Sitthichai Klangpattana, didn't comment on the boys' health or say how well the operation has gone.

Earlier reports said three had already reached Chamber 3, the main base for divers inside the camp.

"If Phra Pirun helps us, we might be able to do it very quickly", Narongsak said, again invoking the god of rain, who is widely revered in Thailand. They were accompanied by two professional divers each throughout.

A stretcher carrying what is believed to be a fifth boy rescued from a cave in northern Thailand. Thai Navy SEALs and worldwide cave diving experts brought out four boys Sunday, and the operation is continuing today. And while oxygen is placed along the road, one experienced ex-Thai Navy SEAL diver lost his life last week while replacing the oxygen canisters.

The toughest part is about halfway out at a section named "T-Junction", which is so tight the divers have to take off their air tanks to get through.
