The Thai cave rescue

Global rescue teams had worked around the clock after the boys were discovered by British divers, to try to drain the caves enough to rescue them.

The first reports came in Tuesday, just as the sun began to set on the Tham Luang caves in northern Thailand: All 12 boys and their assistant soccer coach had been successfully rescued, after two weeks trapped in a flooded cave.

The boys, aged 12-16, were the first to be extracted on Sunday and Monday, while the final four and their coach spent a 17th night inside.

The SEALs say they're still waiting for a medic and three Navy SEALs who stayed with the boys to emerge from the cave. Eight of the trapped boys had been brought out of the cave by divers on Sunday and Monday.

Rescue teams walk inside cave complex where 12 boys and their soccer coach went missing, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, in northern Thailand, July 2, 2018. The rescue team will assess the first two missions and adjust their plans based on the weather and other factors.

Four boys were brought out of the cave Monday and are "safe and conscious", Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Officials have yet to confirm the identities of the four boys freed.

The rescued boys are being quarantined in case any of them contracted infections while inside the cave.

President Trump tweeted his congratulations, describing the emergence of the last four boys and their coach as "such a lovely moment".

"Doctors have treated the boys, and now all of them are OK and cheerful and are talking normally", said Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the Thai Ministry of Public Health.

Two of the eight rescued so far have shown signs of a potential lung infection, but there is a hope they could honour the invite.

A second mission, which rescued another four boys, commenced on Monday, July 9.

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys and some of their parents said they had not been told who had been brought out they were not allowed to visit the hospital where the boys were taken. It reportedly took three hours for the divers to reach the location of the boys, from the cave's entrance.

Four boys and their soccer coach remain in the cave.

They are part of a youth soccer team known as the Wild Boars.
