Sunglasses and chocolates: Eight boys rescued from Thai cave recovering

Richard William Stanton Robert Charles Harper and John Volanthen

Divers have begun the third phase of the rescue of a youth soccer team trapped more than two weeks in a flooded cave in northern Thailand and aim to bring out the last four boys and their coach Tuesday, the top rescue official said.

The parents are able to see their kids through a glass window, but they are not allowed to make physical contact with them because docs are concern about infection.

"All five will be brought out at the same time today", said the head of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakornon, on Tuesday.

Over the weekend, the Thai government successfully rescued four boys who had been trapped in the cave since June 23.

Four more of the boys were carried on stretchers out of the labyrinthine Tham Luang cave on the Myanmar border at dusk on Monday, bringing the number to eight, brought out so far after two rescue pushes on successive days.

The diver, the first fatality of the rescue effort, was working in a volunteer capacity and died on a mission to place air canisters along the passage to where the boys are, necessary for divers to safely travel the five- to six-hour route.

Two of them possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling", he said.

He congratulated Thai relevant forces on the successful conduction of the rescue mission with the effective assistance of global experts and rescuers.

A spokesperson from the Thai public health authority said that they were in "high spirits" and also claimed that as they are football players, they have high immune systems.

The Brits who discovered them were among the elite divers who flew out after the Thai authorities begged the world for help. Jessada also said a psychiatrist was attending to the boys, who are sleeping well and are not showing symptoms of stress.

Information on the rescue operation, the health of those rescued - and their identities - has been tightly guarded by Thai authorities.

VideoOne of the divers on the rescue team in Thailand explains the difficulty of getting the boys out. Heavy rain has struck the region intermittently over the last three days and further downpours could set back draining efforts at the cave.

Officials said they were thankful to Musk for his help but said there was no chance of using the mini sub to rescue the remaining boys.

The Space-X and Tesla founder arrived in Thailand with a miniature "kid sized" submarine Monday.

He posted video of divers escorting the pod during testing in a Los Angeles swimming pool.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.

The submarine is named "Wild Boar" after the name of the football team.

However, Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osatanakorn said this afternoon that while he was grateful for Mr Musk's support, the submarine just was not practical for the rescue mission.
