Divers begin final push to rescue remaining boys, coach in Thailand cave

10 July 2018

They had been trapped inside the Tham Luang cave for more than two weeks.

"I am very happy about those who already made it out and I think everyone will be out today", said Waranchit Karnkaew, 14, who also said the football-mad boys had been closely following games at the World Cup in Russian Federation before they were trapped.

Narongsak Osot-tanakorn, Former Governor of Chiang Rai who heads the rescue operation, said divers hope to rescue the last four boys and their coach from the cave Tuesday.

For the first four rescues on Sunday, two divers accompanied each boy, one from the side and one from behind.

Four boys and their 25-year-old football coach "will be extracted today (Tuesday)", rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said. Heavy rain has struck the region intermittently over the last three days and further downpours could set back draining efforts at the cave. Musk says he's there to help, and you better believe he brought his kid-sized submarine with him.

Tuesday, he tweeted from Thailand that he had been in the caves and that a mini-sub made from rocket parts and named "Wild Boar" after the boys' soccer team, was ready if needed and would be left in Thailand in case it could be of future use.

Once again, British cave experts spearheaded yesterday's operation which involved more than 100 divers. Seven Britons chaperoned the boys through the treacherous tunnels as part of a team that included 18 global cave divers and five elite Thai navy SEALS. It was 10 days before the boys were miraculously located, and the remaining five have been in the cave for eight days. "I'm so happy the children came out safely".

Information on the rescue operation, the health of those rescued - and their identities - has been tightly guarded by Thai authorities.

The new version was made by the Queen's dresser, Angela Kelly . "Did they borrow them from the Queen?" one commentator wrote. Prince Louis will be christened in the Lily Font , a silver gilt font and bowl decorated in lilies, ivy and cherubs.

They have no fever or serious ailments, said public health permanent secretary Dr Jesada Chokedamrongsuk at a press conference on Tuesday (July 10).

The eight rescued boys were recuperating in a hospital from their ordeal huddling on a dry patch inside the Tham Luan Nang Non cave that became flooded by monsoon rains while they were exploring it June 23.

Medical teams previously said concerns included hypothermia and an airborne lung infection known as "cave disease", which is caused by bat and bird droppings.

The plight of the boys and their coach has drawn worldwide attention since they became trapped when they went into the cave after soccer practice on June 23.

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

However, doctors later relented after some of the boys asked for bread with chocolate spread.

And Gianna Infantino, the president of Federation Internationale de Football Association, soccer's governing body, has invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday.
