Out of 13 Rescued from Flooded Cave in Thailand

The team of 12 boys and their coach entered the cave system on June 23, when torrential rain caused the water level within the cave to rise rapidly, forcing them to venture deeper.

The head of the operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said earlier the final operation would be "more challenging" because one more survivor would be brought out, along with three Navy SEALs who have been accompanying them.

Tuesday's operation began just after 10 a.m. After the boys were transported to the same hospital as their other teammates, Thai officials said the rescue operation would again be put on hold for up to 20 hours so rescuers could lay down new air tanks and prepare the escape route. "Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out".

The first eight boys rescued from a Thai cave are in good mental and physical health and are asking for chocolate, officials said Tuesday, although two were on antibiotics after being tested for pneumonia.

They also note that there is no definitive immunological measurement that is known to predict protection against HIV-1 in humans. This means the person had produced antibodies that would be able to bind to proteins found on the surface of the HIV virus.

However, Dr. Jesada Chokedamrongsuk of the Thai ministry of public health said the boys will not be able to make the trip, reported Channel News Asia.

But two of the boys freed from the partially flooded Thai cave have suspected lung infections, following their 16 day ordeal underground. They're now recovering in hospital and are said to be "healthy". Four were rescued on Monday, and the first four extracted on Sunday.

The first four boys who were rescued on Sunday have been allowed to see their families through a glass window as doctors continue to conduct thorough health checks and monitor the boys for any contagious diseases.

Elon Musk unveils 'kid-size' submarine for Thai cave rescue
Cave rescue experts have said they consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving. Onlookers watch and cheer as ambulances deliver boys rescued from a cave in northern Thailand to hospital in Chiang Rai.

Heavy rains lashed the northern Thai region late yesterday and a steady downpour has continued into today.

At a news conference Monday, former Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn said the second rescue involved numerous same divers who brought the four boys out on Sunday. But they also warned heavy rain could hamper their efforts.

As of 2:40 p.m. local time, the rescue has been underway for over 4 hours and nobody has been seen yet leaving the cave. It could reportedly take two to four days to complete the mission, officials said, so there is a chance that Musk's mini-sub will be there before the rescue is concluded. Eight boys have been rescued so far while the remaining four boys and their coach still remained trapped in the cave.

They had been trapped inside the Tham Luang cave for more than two weeks. As with the previous rescue efforts, 19 divers have gone into the cave, with two divers escorting each of the boys out of the cave with tethers.
