Thailand Cave Rescue: All 12 Boys And Coach Rescued From Flooded Cave

One of the most extraordinary rescue missions in living memory has ended with all 12 Thai soccer players and their coach saved from deep inside the Tham Luang cave complex.

Divers, however, rescued the remaining boys and their 25-year-old coach without the help of Musk's submarine.

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what", they said on Facebook.

Federation Internationale de Football Association also offered condolences to the family of the Thai Navy SEAL diver who died saving the boys and expressed "profound gratitude to all persons involved in the rescue operation". British divers found the 13, huddled on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometers inside the complex, on Monday last week.

He also told reporters that the first four boys who were rescued are now able to eat normal food.

It could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital, said Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry.

"I remember all of their faces, especially the youngest one".

"I just want to give him a hug and say I missed you, " she said.

"Nobody thought we could do it".

Theresa May said the "world was watching and will be saluting the bravery of all those involved". The rescue mission is still underway.

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.

"The equipment they brought to help us is not practical with our mission", Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osotthanakorn, the head of the rescue efforts, said of the billionaire's technology, according to BBC.

The eight boys brought out by divers on Sunday and Monday were doing well and were in good spirits, a senior health official said.

The group was rescued from the cave yesterday after a marathon, multinational operation that captivated the world.

Trained divers from the USA, the U.K., Canada and elsewhere flew to Thailand to offer their expertise and help escort the team out through the flooded cave passages.

Shortly after the full rescue was announced, President Trump sent a congratulatory message.

Other images circulating on social media include portraits, pictures and cartoons of Saman Kunan, the former Thai navy SEAL who died while trying to deliver oxygen to the boys last Friday. "Such a handsome moment - all freed, great job!"

The last of the 12 boys and their soccer coach trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand were rescued on Tuesday.

So far the group have been "kept away" from physical contact with their parents until the risk of infection is over and doctors have only allowed family and loved ones to see them through glass.
