3rd mission underway at Thai cave, aims to rescue all left

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

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Mr Jedsada said. "We can see that everything is ok as they're eating well", he said.

A Reuters witness saw four people being carried out of the Tham Luang cave on stretchers separately on Tuesday, the third day of the rescue operation.

Soccer's governing body, FIFA, has invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday if they are healthy enough to go. Jedsada 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".

Yet initial reports suggest the eight boys, aged 12-16, were in good shape, despite spending more than a fortnight underground.

On July 4, Musk expressed his willingness to help the Thai government in rescuing the 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach who have all been trapped inside the miles-long cave for more than 2 weeks.

Narongsak Osottanakorn told a news conference the latest rescue operation began at about 10:08 am local time. He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests.

Each of the rescued boys has been guided through the dark winding cave by two pairs of divers.

Rescuers walk toward the entrance to a cave complex where five were still trapped, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand Tuesday, July 10, 2018.

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to unsafe lows and the prospect of heavy rains flooding the area completely, authorities decided they had to move quickly and take the group out through the water-filled tunnels.

"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.

Officials said all eight of the boys rescued so far were "good physically and mentally", though two of the four brought out on Monday had swollen lungs.

Elon Musk really wants the world to know he's at the cave rescue operation site in Thailand, and he's there to help.

On Sunday, officials waited several hours before confirming the safe rescue of the first four boys.

As an global coalition of divers continued to rescue a Thai soccer team and their coach from a cave Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was trying to help in his own inimitable way. "Hopefully useful. If not, perhaps it will be in a future situation".

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha visited the cave to inspect the operation, with navy rescuers giving him a rousing cheer.
