  • Thailand Navy SEALs Confirm Multiple Boys of Youth Soccer Team Rescued from Cave

But the survival of those remaining in the cave is far from guaranteed with extraction efforts put on hold until Monday morning to allow rescue divers time to resupply. Upon landing at nearby Old Airport, the boys will be taken via ambulance to Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital, a hospital official told ABC News.

The rest of the Thai soccer team and their 25-year-old coach remain inside the Tham Luang Nang cave.

Mild weather and falling water levels over the past few days had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation that won't last if it rains again, Narongsak had said. We will have to do the next mission as successfully as the one we did today'.

The rescue mission has concluded for the night.

Divers were assigned at 10 a.m. local time, and the rescue will start as soon as possible, officials said.

An Australian doctor and cave diving expert has played a critical role in the precarious mission to save a young Thai soccer team from their prison cave.

"We have a fraction of a second to help them come out", the governor said.

Musk tweeted that he was working with a team from his Space X rocket company to build a "tiny kid-size submarine" to transport the boys.

The third boy emerged from the cave at about 19:40 local time, tightly followed by the fourth one.

It is estimated that the boys and their coach are 1.24 miles from the mouth of the cave and about 0.6 miles below the surface.

Iran has threatened to block oil exports through a key Gulf waterway in retaliation against any hostile United States action. Trump, however, is not satisfied with either the current level of oil prices or the announced production increase.

Channel Nine's Alice Monfries has a 7.20am update after the rescue earlier this morning.

When they come out of the cave, Heidler said, they will go straight into a waiting ambulance.

Dr Harris continues to play a key role in the ongoing global effort to get the remaining eight boys and their coach to safety. The other boys have not been identified yet. "They have not been moved to Chiang Rai hospital yet".

Osotthanakorn told reporters there would be a meeting Sunday evening to plan next steps, and that authorities want to ensure conditions are stable before beginning the next phase of the rescue.

Earlier Thai's Navy SEALS said that three boys had been rescued, and officials later told Reuters and AFP that six boys had been saved.

The group was found alive in a small cave chamber on Monday after nine days, mounting an global rescue effort with experts weighing in from all over the world. "They are now at the field hospital near the cave", said Tossathep Boonthong, chief of Chiang Rai's health department reportedly told Reuters.

Of the 13-strong foreign dive team - mainly from Europe - three were escorting the children, while the remainder were positioned along the unsafe first kilometre stretch, where the boys will have to navigate through submerged passageways in some places no more than two feet wide.

Four boys have been rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand, the head of the rescue effort said on Sunday.

On Sunday four members of the "Wild Boar" team were successfully brought out from the cave, after authorities decided they had to rush ahead with a rescue operation to beat monsoon rains. He found kindred spirits in the boys, many of whom had grown up poor or were stateless ethnic minorities, common in this border area between Myanmar and Thailand.
