Divers enter cave to bring out last trapped group

Divers enter cave to bring out last trapped group

Now, two boys along with their football coach remain in the caves.

Pak Loharnshoon is a doctor with the Thai Navy Seals, who, along with three others, volunteered to stay with the boys after they were found underground a week ago.

Officials said they were thankful to Musk for his help but said there was no chance of using the mini sub to rescue the remaining boys.

"They are all in good spirits and happy to be out", Jedsada Chokdamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the public health ministry, told reporters.

The last four boys and their coach were freed from a cave in northern Thailand on Tuesday, the third day of a harrowing and heroic rescue operation that brought the young Wild Boars footballers out of a winding, flooded cavern where they were trapped for more than two weeks.

People across Thailand cheered the rescue operation, including at the Mae Sai Prasitsart school where six of the trapped boys are students.

Rescue leader Narongsak Osatanakorn said at a sudden press conference on Tuesday that the mission began at 10.08 a.m. local time and that everyone in the cave is expected to be rescued today.

On Wednesday, a few hundred Thai schoolchildren gathered opposite the hospital, chanting thanks to those who helped and looking up at the building that will be home to the rescued football team for the coming days. Their body temperatures were very low when they emerged, and two are suspected of having lung inflammation.

Families of the first four boys were being kept at a distance because of fears of infection and the boys were initially only allowed to eat a rice-based porridge, authorities said.

Kerber took advantage of Kasatkina's 31 unforced errors, including seven double faults, but took a while to end things. The two met last month in the second round at the French Open, with Williams winning in straight sets.

The cave evacuation wasn't the first time some of the boys had faced and escaped a great peril.

Elite military and divers from several countries entered the cave on three separate days to bring out the boys one by one. He also instructed them to collect drinking water from the cave walls instead of from floodwaters.

"They had less than five meters' visibility, fought harsh currents and used a buddy system of two divers for each boy rescued".

All the rescued boys and their coach were taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Chiang Rai.

Technology billionaire Elon Musk went into the cave on Monday and left the rescue team with a "kid-sized" submarine his company SpaceX had built, Thailand's interior Minister Anupong Paochinda said.

The tech entrepreneur tweeted Tuesday morning he'd "Just returned from Cave 3", referring to the rescuers' command center inside the sprawling cave.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.

With oxygen levels in their chamber falling to risky levels and monsoon rains threatening to flood the cave up above the ledge where the boys were sheltering, rescuers decided on the least-worst option of having divers escort them out through the tunnels.
