Rescue Operation To Save The Thai Football Team Is Underway

Ambulances and rescue crews have returned to the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand for a second operation to free more trapped boys.

The boys, members of the Wild Boars soccer team, were invited to the World Cup Final in Moscow if they make it out in time and can physically handle the trip.

The rescued children were taken to the hospital, and officials said early Monday that they are strong and safe but need to undergo detailed medical checks. They say rescuing the eight remaining boys and their soccer coach could take up to four days.

The rescue operation is estimated to take 10 hours and end by 9 p.m. local time.

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to risky 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.

Unconfirmed reports that the boys' coach, Ekapol Chanthawong, 25, was among the first four to be evacuated because of the poor state of his health, were dismissed on Monday.

Thai authorities said the parents of the four rescued boys are still being kept from physical contact with them due to fear of infections. That brought the total number of boys rescued to five. "But there are caves where. explorers could go in and be trapped by rising water during like a heavy rain and trapped in an air pocket", Brick said. As of this midday Monday, eight of the 12 boys had been rescued, and operations were ongoing.

While the names of those rescued have not been released, six of the boys are students at the Maesaiprasitsart School and classmates say they've been closely monitoring the global mission to save them.

He said that expert divers who had taken part in Sunday's operation needed to rest at least 20 hours, which would have delayed the start of the second phase to between 8pm and 10pm on Monday.

Four boys were successfully rescued on Sunday during a gruelling eight-hour rescue operation.

And, Foisey said, the boys do have one thing going for them: "I'm sure these kids were very determined to get home".

Mild weather and falling water levels over the past few days created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation, but that won't last if it rains again, Narongsak said. "So to get them back to their baseline - which would require food, water, vitamins, all the nutrients that we normally have, plus reasonable exercise of muscle tone - would take a matter of weeks". "And we have more expertise than yesterday", he said.

The four boys pulled from the cave Sunday were happy and in good health, authorities said.

An official briefed on the rescue operation said Monday the rescued kids haven't yet been served the chicken dish but are starting instead with lighter blander food such as diluted porridge. His colleagues said they would "not let the sacrifice of our friend go to waste".

12 young children and their football coach have been stuck in a partially flooded cave in Thailand's Chiang Rai province since June 23rd, and they're beginning to run out of oxygen.

"I watch the news on my phone, my mom is watching on TV", said Chokumpompan, who graduated from the same school that six of the boys now attend, Mae Si Prasitsart School.
