Thai Cave Rescue Operation To Resume In 10-20 Hours

The rescue operation commenced on Sunday afternoon, as monsoonal rain threatened to further flood the cave, making a rescue impossible, and possibly depriving the boys of oxygen. "When they're deprived of light and their comfort issues from home there can be psychological sequelae that have to be addressed, and we've seen that before with people who have been held hostage or in kind of hard environmental situations", Ashton said, referring to the medical term for the after effects of a traumatic incident.

Two of them have been taken by ambulance to hospital while another two were airlifted, but none of them were stretchered out.

The team became trapped on June 23 when they set out to explore the cave after soccer practice and rains flooded the tunnels, trapping them inside.

Thai officials said the rescue effort, which began Saturday night, will take multiple days.

As of Sunday, four boys were confirmed rescued from the cave, before the mission was paused, according to the BBC.

Billionaire tech developer Elon Musk had also offered to provide assistance, in the form of a "kid-size submarine", which could arrive in Thailand early Monday, local time.

The same process was used Sunday for at least one of the four boys rescued in the first attempt at getting the 12 boys and their coach out of the underground cave complex.

Since I can not in all conscience champion these proposals, I have sadly concluded that I must go". Johnson and Davis advocate a clean break with the European Union, known as "hard Brexit".

"The fact that it took so many hours underscores how precarious this whole mission is", she said.

The risks of the journey through the cave's narrow passageways, in some places no more than 0.6m wide, was driven home last Friday when a former Thai navy diver died after his oxygen supply ran out.

Officials have said storms forecast for Chiang Rai province in Thailand's far north had factored into their decision to go ahead with a complicated and risky plan for the boys aged between 11 and 16 and their coach to dive out of the cave. But the Denver Fire Department captain said the rescue mission to save a youth soccer team in Thailand is "unbelievable". The junta chief is due to visit the site later today.

The boys were taken by helicopter to Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital in Chiang Rai, capital of the province of the same name where the cave is located. "I can't say how many people will come out tomorrow".

The most experienced cave rescue team ever assembled then filed into the black mouth of the cave.

The entire group had been trapped for more than two weeks.

"The next step is to make sure those kids and their families are safe because living in a cave has a different environment which might contains animals that could transmit any disease", a hospital statement said. Those conditions won't last if the rain resumes, he said. Visitors would need to wear sanitized clothes and stay two meters away from the children.

It's been over two weeks since 12 young boys and their football coach got trapped in a cave after heavy rains flooded the entrance and blocked their way out.

The boys and their football coach as they were found in a partially flooded cave.

The boys separately emerged from Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai Province between 5:30 pm and 6 pm local time. Two other boys came out at 7:40 p.m. and 7:50 p.m.

The hordes of global and local media have been kept back from the cave and the hospital in Chiang Rai where the boys are believed to be under observation. Onlookers were seen watched and cheering as they drove by. Apart from the Thai authorities, 19 Australian divers are a part of the risky rescue mission.

Nine people remained trapped in the cave, including the team's coach, after four boys were rescued on Sunday, the first day of the rescue operation.

US Embassy Bangkok spokesman Steve Castonguay said that "The US will remain here to continue to support this operation until all the soccer players and their coach have been rescued".

Narongsak said rescuers had to tighten a guide rope as part of their preparations for Monday's operation. Not only did Musk send his own team of engineers to Thailand to work with the rescue mission, but it seems his newly designed submarine - made specifically with the trapped children in mind - could be ready to aid divers in their next phase of evacuations.
