Thai Cave Rescue: Tenth Person Taken Out Of Cave On Stretcher

Four were brought to the surface on Sunday, more than two weeks after a football team and their coach were trapped underground.

Four boys have been rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand and taken to hospital.

"On behalf of the United States, congratulations to the Thai Navy SEALs and all on the successful rescue of the 12 boys and their coach from the treacherous cave in Thailand", Trump said on Twitter. "All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Thai navy SEALs, which is helping to lead the operation.

The boys, aged 11-16, and their coach, 25, were trapped inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai after a football game on June 23.

The complex rescue mission to extract the football team has been ongoing for several days, with an worldwide team of rescue divers leading each boy individually out of the cave complex, fitted with a full-face scuba mask and carrying a supply of oxygen so they can pass through kilometers of tapering tunnels flooded with monsoon rains.

On Tuesday, rescue workers launched the final stage of the evacuation operation aimed at bringing out the remaining five people.

They said they were waiting for a medic and three Seals who had stayed with the boys in their dark refuge deep inside the cave complex to come out.

The eight boys brought out on Sunday and Monday were in good health overall and some asked for chocolate bread for breakfast, officials said.

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around in hospital.

Authorities did not reveal the identity of the boys as they were brought out, one by one. A provincial Chiang Rai official added "the eleventh was taken to a field hospital".

Doctors were being cautious because of the infection risk and were isolating the boys in the hospital.

Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai navy Seal died on Friday while replenishing oxygen canisters laid at regular intervals along the route out of the sprawling Tham Luang cave.

People across Thailand, and the world, have cheered the rescue operation, including at the Mae Sai Prasitsart school where six of the trapped boys are students.

Two elite British divers, Rick Stanton and John Volanthen, were the first rescuers to reach the group on Monday night and are believed to be part of the team.
