Navy SEAL unit: All 13 rescued from flooded Thai cave

Thailand Ministry of Public Health

Four boys were rescued from the underground caves on Sunday, bringing the total number of recovered children to eight.

When Thai navy SEALs confirmed that all 12 soccer players and their coach had been safely rescued from the flooded cave they had entered 18 days ago, Simmee Oupra was overcome with emotion.

The first boy to emerge from the cave complex on Monday was seen on a stretcher just before 4:30 pm local time. It was an incredible result considering that the boys spent nine days incommunicado, without food, until they were found, and then waited days more before embarking on an hourslong dive that even the most skilled cave divers have described as among the most risky they have attempted. All have now been transferred to hospital.

Musk and his team of engineers at SpaceX and The Boring Co. designed and built a mini-submarine to help rescue a soccer team of 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach. The prime minister may host a banquet to thank the foreign divers. Rescuers are preparing equipment for a third rescue mission for Tuesday morning.

"Although his technology is good and sophisticated, it's not practical for this mission", the rescue chief said.

The 12 members of a Thai youth football team and their coach rescued from a cave have been invited to Old Trafford by Manchester United.

Since the operation started, the area outside the cave's entrance has filled with media, volunteers and onlookers.

Elon Musk's "kid-sized submarine" was ultimately "not practical" for helping rescuers save a group of boys and their soccer coach stuck in a Thailand cave, the head of the rescue operation said. People on the street cheered and clapped when ambulances ferrying them on the last leg of their journey from the cave arrived at a hospital in Chiang Rai city. "All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Navy SEAL unit, which led the rescue, said on its Facebook page, adding all were safe.

Mr Karadzic, who the BBC reported was stationed near a hard stretch of the cave about halfway along the escape route to replace oxygen tanks and help guide people through, said the rescue workers had feared the worst.

While their parents have been able to visit them, they have been kept separate "through the glass because doctors are concerned". Medical experts say they are in high spirits and generally healthy. Officials said the first mission lasted about 11 hours, while the second mission was two hours faster.

"It's really a miracle", she said.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.
