Four more boys rescued from Thai caves

Thailand Navy SEALs Confirm Multiple Boys of Youth Soccer Team Rescued from Cave Thai soccer team update: First boys emerge from cave

Update: 6:45 a.m. EDT- Rescue workers brought out a fifth boy at 5 p.m. local time (6 a.m. EDT) Monday from the cave in Thailand, the Guardian reported.

After rescuing the four boys, the officials paused the operation for at least 10 hours to fill the oxygen tanks that were used.

The rescued boys are now being kept in sterilized isolation units at a nearby hospital, which prohibits physical contact, and their parents have not been told that they're safe.

"Today we managed to rescue and send back four children to Chiang Rai Prachanukrua Hospital safely", the head of the rescue operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, told a news conference.

Late Sunday, nine hours after they entered the cave, elite divers emerged carrying four of the teenage boys who were quickly transferred to waiting ambulances. The latter option is extremely risky, and the arduous trip caused the death of a former Thai Navy SEAL as he lost consciousness underwater while placing extra air tanks inside the cave to allow other rescuers to reach the group.

Thai officials have been tight-lipped about the rescue operation, and would not comment on how many people were removed Monday.

A risky mission to rescue 12 Thai schoolboys and their soccer coach trapped inside a flooded cave for more than two weeks began on Sunday.

While parents were criminally prosecuted, children were placed in custody of the Health and Human Services Department. But he signaled they'd ask a judge for more time. "Country being forced to endure a long and costly trial", he wrote.

The four boys guided from the cave Sunday in an urgent and unsafe operation that involved them diving through the cave's dark, tight and twisting passages were happy and in good health, authorities said. Those conditions won't last if the rain resumes, he said.

The four boys who were rescued on Sunday appeared to be in good health, Thai officials said, but were undergoing a battery of medical tests in the hospital to ensure they were free from disease and infection. A family member told CNN Monday that they hadn't been told which boys had been pulled out, and who is still trapped in the cave.

The operation to rescue the boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach by having them dive out of the flooded cave began Sunday morning, with expert divers entering the sprawling complex for the complicated and unsafe mission. Four came out Monday, and it is possible Tuesday's plan was to bring out four more.

Four of the boys' teammates and Thai dive experts were flown to the same hospital for treatment the day before. They were stranded by flash floods that caused water levels to rise, making it hard to get out. And while oxygen is placed along the road, one experienced ex-Thai Navy SEAL diver lost his life last week while replacing the oxygen canisters. That brought the total number of boys rescued to five.

They expected the process to take two or three days with two divers escorting each boy.

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys. Rescuers have been racing against the clock to beat the next downpour, which could make the operation much more hard.

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to risky lows and the prospect of heavy rains flooding the area completely, authorities decided they had to move quickly, and take the group out through the water-filled tunnels.
