Thai cave rescue: United States film crew on the case

The remaining four boys and their coach, along with three Thai Navy SEALs and a doctor who were staying with them, successfully exited the cave Tuesday.

Officials on Tuesday echoed expert comment on Musk's proposed technology to help save the boys.

Thai navy SEALs and an Australian medic who had been stationed with the boys for days, preparing them for their dive, were brought out of the cave soon after.

After pondering for days how to get the 13 out, a rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

Thai media celebrate after evacuation in Chiang Rai as divers evacuated some of the 12 boys and their coach trapped at Tham Luang cave in the Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand, Tuesday, July 10, 2018.

He also told reporters that the first four boys who were rescued are now able to eat normal food. He added that all of them were generally healthy and in good spirits, thanks to their "high immunity" from playing football. After a long and risky rescue effort, the last members of the group were brought to safety today (July 10).

Rescuers had spent days balancing the risk of impending monsoons, which could have flooded the cave again, against the boys' readiness, weakened as they were by their ordeal.

Hours after the rescue was confirmed, President Trump tweeted his congratulations, adding, "Such a lovely moment - all freed, great job!"

American space entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted that he visited the Tham Luang cave operation on Monday and Tuesday morning, and left behind a prototype mini-sub "in case it is useful" at the flooded cave where five members of a youth football team remained trapped. All the rescued are expected to be taken to the hospital soon.

"The second group of four rescued on Monday are aged 12 to 14".

Some of the boys had reportedly explored the cave system in the past, while some knew the system well, but became stuck after a flash flood trapped them deep inside the cave.

Narongsak said the rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped.
