Amid jubilation, 4 more boys rescued from flooded Thai cave

All eight boys rescued so far after spending two weeks trapped in a Thai cave are in good health overall and the first four rescued boys are eating well, Thailand's health ministry permanent secretary said on Tuesday.

Authorities have also declined to provide the names and identities of the boys who were rescued.

Chiang Rai province's acting governor, Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue, voiced confidence Monday in the ongoing operation, provided the weather doesn't take a turn for the worse. Four boys and their football coach are still in the cave. They are all members of a youth soccer team called the Wild Boars.

Narongsak said after the first four boys were rescued that they would be quarantined "for a while because we are concerned about infections".
