Sunglasses and chocolates: Eight boys rescued from Thai cave recovering

On Tuesday, the final members of the Wild Boars football team and their coach were rescued from the Thai caves where they were trapped - and ended an incredible rescue mission that lasted 17 days.

Rescue commander Narongsak Osotanakorn had stated his hope that Tuesday's mission to extract the final group of children and their team coach would be quicker than the two previous days, with confirmation of the rescue coming just before 7pm local time in Thailand.

The first 4 boys who were rescued the other day, aged between 12 and 16, are now allowed to eat normal food once again.

A doctor and three Thai Navy SEALs, who have stayed with the group since shortly after they were discovered huddled on a muddy ledge deep inside the Tham Luang cave complex, will also come out, Narongsak added.

Narongsak Osatanakorn says the rescue mission began at 10.08 a.m. and involves 19 divers.

Officials lavished praise on the Thai and global divers who, in pairs of two, executed the risky rescue mission, guiding the boys, who could barely swim and had no diving experience, through a treacherous 4-kilometer-long (2 1/2-mile) escape route that twisted and turned through the cavern.

The "Wild Boars" team are trapped since June 23 when they set out to explore the cave after soccer practice and rains flooded the tunnels.

The first eight boys rescued are now at a hospital, and they are in good conditions physically and mentally, Thai health officials said here on Tuesday.

While the boys are in good health, two may have mild lung infection.

Rescue efforts bore fruit on Sunday as four of the children were pulled from the ordeal, while an additional four were added to the rescue tally on Monday.

The worldwide bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters.

"The kids are footballers, are strong and have high immunity", Jesada said when asked why they survived so long.

Four were rescued on Sunday and another four were rescued in a faster operation on Monday, after two weeks trapped in the cave complex in north-western Thailand.

Sadly, the boys and their coach had to decline under orders from their doctors to remain in the hospital for seven days for monitoring. Heavy rainfall and flooding near the cave prevented rescuers from reaching them for nearly 10 days.

On Twitter, Musk has mused about potential inventions that could help the trapped soccer team, including a miniature submarine made from part of a SpaceX rocket. "Mini-sub is ready if needed". "Leaving here in case it may be useful in the future", he tweeted Monday.
