Eight boys rescued from Thai cave recovering — Sunglasses and chocolates

Divers have begun the third phase of the rescue of a youth soccer team trapped more than two weeks in a flooded cave in northern Thailand and aim to bring out the last four boys and their coach Tuesday, the top rescue official said.

The first eight boys rescued are now at a hospital, and they are in good conditions physically and mentally, Thai health officials said here on Tuesday.

The rescued boys are still being held in quarantine for testing and have not been able to have direct contact with their parents yet.

For the final operation tomorrow, Mr Narongsak said the rescuers would use the same plan with some adjustments because the number of survivors to be extracted would be five instead of four as was the case for the last two days.

Four boys and their football coach are waiting to make the long and arduous journey out of the cave complex.

As with the previous rescue efforts, 19 divers have gone into the cave, with two divers escorting each of the boys out of the cave with tethers.

Jesada Chokdumrongsuk said that the boys are "healthy and smiling", he added: "the kids are footballers so they have high immune systems".

Loud cheers broke out when the acting governor of Thailand's Chiang Rai state, Narongsak Osatanakorn, announced Sunday that the first boys had been brought out of the cave.

Mr Jesada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

It took divers a total of 11 hours to do a round-trip rescue mission from and to the exit point of the cave, South China Morning Post reported.

The ups and downs of the rescue bid has entranced Thailand and also fixated a global audience, drawing comments of support from celebrities as varied as US President Donald Trump, football star Lionel Messi and tech guru Elon Musk.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces said that he was glad to hear that the rescue operations were successful. "Everyone is in high spirits and is happy to get out".

Although eight boys have been rescued, four young soccer players and their coach still remain behind.

He also shared pictures and video of engineers testing the mini sub in a Los Angeles pool - maneuvering the device through simulated passageways.

The eight boys that have been rescued so far are weak but in good health, Kimberlee says. It is made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after kids' soccer team.

"I hope today we will be faster or the same speed as yesterday", Narongsak said.
