Rescue begins to pull remaining boys, coach from Thai cave

Thai soldiers prepare for the second day of an operation to bring football team out of Tham Luang cave complex

Emergency crews in Thailand brought a second group of four boys to safety on Monday, more than two weeks after 12 boys and their soccer coach were trapped in a flooded cave network.

The rescue operation was launched on Sunday and four boys were brought out that day.

"I beg Phra Pirun because the Meteorological Department said that from Monday on there will be continuous rain", Bancha said.

"The mission has resumed", a government official closely involved in the mission told Reuters, declining to be identified.

Each boy is being accompanied by two divers through the dark and complex cave system.

Once that task is complete, the boys are then handed over to a team of specialist who are assisting them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they can wade through. She added that the four boys rescued on Sunday were hungry and asked for a local dish. On Monday, four more were rushed to a hospital.

In a statement released by the government, Mr Paojinda said officials were meeting Monday morning local time about how to extract the remaining nine people from the cave in the country's north. Mr Paojinda said more air canisters were being placed along the underwater route to where the boys and their coach have been trapped for nearly two weeks.

The four boys who were rescued Sunday had to travel about 4 km (2 1/2 miles) with oxygen tanks.

A total of eight boys were removed from the cave on Sunday and Monday.

The rescued boys are likely to stay in Chiang Rai hospital for 48 hours undergoing medical tests to check their health after they swam through dirty floodwaters to exit the cave.

Narongsak said rescuers would meet Monday evening to plan for the next operation.

Vale Kylie Jenner's lip fillers
The 20-year-old star became insecure about her lips after a comment from her teenage crush. "I still do Juvéderm for my lips". But Kylie was quick to respond to her devoted fans, writing: "i got rid of all my filler ", with several anxious face emojis.

There was no immediate word on their conditions.

As the perilous rescue operation continues, Xylem still has three employees on site and is air-lifting in new pumps that might be able to boost pumping capacity if there are still people left in the cave when they arrive.

Even as a frantic rescue operation is underway to save a Thai soccer team stranded inside a flooded cave, American entrepreneur Elon Musk is testing a "tiny, kid-sized submarine" which could possibly aid in the rescue mission.

The four rescued boys have been transported to a Chiang Rai hospital for treatment and medical evaluations, reported CBS.

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

The rescued boys are being kept in sterilized isolation units at a nearby hospital, which prohibits physical contact, and their parents have not been told they're safe.

"The weather conditions and other environments today are as good as yesterday". The stretcher was loaded into the back of the ambulance as medics rushed in the side door.

The most touching note came from one whose name was not clear: "I'm doing fine, but the air is a little cold, but don't worry".

The cave complex is off-limits during the rainy season, which usually runs from May to October when downpours can quickly flood it.

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

Hundreds of spectators and journalists have gathered in the area around the cave, hoping for news that the boys and their coach would emerge safely.
