Navy SEAL unit: All 13 rescued from flooded Thai cave

Navy SEAL unit: All 13 rescued from flooded Thai cave

All twelve boys and their soccer coach have been successfully rescued from a Thai cave complex after an 18-day ordeal that gripped the world.

Musk has offered a "kid-sized" submarine, named Wild Boar after the kids' soccer team, to help in the rescue operation.

Rescue efforts over the last few days have managed to bring eight out of the 12 boys to safety, with divers going in and out of the caves to rescue them in groups of four.

"They (all the boys) will have to stay in the hospital for one week to wait for their results and to see if anything changes", he said.

On Tuesday, the final members of the team were brought out to complete the rescue, and the news has been welcomed across soccer.

Australian doctor Richard Harris, who was specially requested by the diving team involved in the Thai cave rescue.

Scott believes the cave rescue story, which will be centered around the two British divers who discovered the boys, is the flawless project for Pure Flix. But a short period of less heavy rainfall this week made the rescue mission possible. Each operation has taken at least nine hours.

The story captured national attention since British divers discovered the boys on Monday, July 2. They were given a treat on Tuesday: bread with chocolate spread that they had requested.

It's been more than two weeks since the 12 boys and their soccer coach became trapped in the flooded Tham Luang cave at the Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in Chiang Rai.

Rescue workers wearing protection suits wait for some of the rescued schoolboys at military airport in Chiang Rai on Monday.

"The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe", the SEAL unit said on its official Facebook page.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jesada said. Medical officials told reporters that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and "seem to be in high spirits". "But we will have a psychiatrist evaluate them".

Despite all the risks associated with the rescue, she says she never had any doubt that the boys would all make it out. The food had been cooked in the camp right outside the mouth of the cave, but the boys could only nibble on the rice because they'd grown so weak, the Thai military sources said.

"All eight are in good health, no fever. everyone is in a good mental state", Jedsada Chokdamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the public health ministry, said before all 13 had been rescued.

Chief of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, declined to comment on the identity of the four people brought out in the evening, saying updates would be supplied at a news conference that is scheduled to be held late on Monday.
