How divers rescued the first 4 boys from the cave in Thailand

Thai cave rescue route MAP How will divers help to FREE trapped boys

A Thai Navy SEAL commander told reporters he believed there was "a limited amount of time" left to rescue the soccer team.

According to Thailand's interior minister, same divers who rescued 3 students and the coach on Sunday night will conduct the next operation as they are aware of the cave conditions.

It is anticipated the remaining rescues will take three or four days to complete.

Thai police officers stand guard at the blocking area in front of the oxygen tanks on a auto during rescue operations to save a soccer team at Tham Luang cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park, Chiang Rai province, Thailand.

The rescue operation claimed the life of a former Thai navy diver last week. All the boys were in good condition, Narongsak said. The boys were dived out from the cave one by one, escorted by two divers at one time.

Narongsak, the rescue mission chief, determined that the latter option was "impossible", as the tunnels are unlikely to dry out before December.

The legal proceedings had been dragged out, but recent Japanese media reports said the executions were expected. The attack, one of Japan's worst terrorism incidents, killed 13 people and injured over 6 ,200.

The boys, all members of a local soccer team called the Wild Boars, had been hiking in the caves when they became trapped by rain waters.

Divers will rest, leaders will evaluate the rescue thus far, and the cave will be prepped with oxygen and other materials required to bring the stranded boys out, he said.

As of Monday morning, nine people remained trapped in the cave, including the 12-member team's coach, after four boys were rescued on Sunday, the first day of the rescue operation.

Four boys were rescued on Sunday.

Narongsak said the operation on Monday went more smoothly than on Sunday and took two hours less, adding, "We think tomorrow we will do better than today and will succeed 100 percent".

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, went missing with their 25-year-old coach after soccer practice on June 23, setting out on an adventure to explore the cave complex near the border with Myanmar and celebrate a boy's birthday. Rescue teams have made the pause to replace the air tanks.

Thirteen medical teams were stationed outside the cave on Sunday - each with its own helicopter and ambulance - one for each of 12 boys and their coach.

They were guided by expert divers who plotted the hours-long escape through more than four kilometres (2.5 miles) of twisting passageways and flooded chambers. Authorities have brought the group high-protein gels and supplies to last for four months and have been trying to install a phone line.

A frantic rescue mission was hatched in the week since they were found.

"It is important to appreciate that the United Kingdom cave divers continue to work alongside the Thai Navy SEAL divers and a combination of cave divers and open water divers from many other nations", the statement said.
