Thai Cave Rescue: Sixth Boy Leaves, Six Soccer Players and Coach Remain

Rescue commander Narongsak Osotanakorn has been shifted from his post as Chiang Rai governor after conflict with the

Four more boys have been airlifted to a Chiang Rai hospital after they were safely brought out of the Tham Luang cave by the same team of elite divers who managed to rescue the first four boys on Sunday, according to the Thai Navy Seals. It was unclear who was inside the ambulance or the helicopter.

Four boys were retrieved from the cave Sunday, with Narongsak noting that the healthiest boys were removed first.

A tiny submarine is on its way to Thailand, sent by Tesla CEO Elon Musk to help rescue the remaining members of a youth soccer team who are trapped in a cave.

The boys are said to be generally in good health but doctors are still evaluating whether they could have picked up any unsafe infections, such as the potentially lethal leptospirosis, while inside the damp cave for two weeks. "We can't visit our boys in hospital because they need to be monitored for 48 hours", Somboon told Reuters. It is a race against the clock with heavy rain expected in coming days, which would again dangerously flood the tunnels with fast flowing, and rising, water.

Officials lavished praise on the Thai and worldwide divers who, in pairs of two, executed the unsafe rescue mission, guiding the boys, who could barely swim and had no diving experience, through a treacherous 2½-mile-long escape route that twisted and turned through the cavern.

"This morning they said they were hungry and wanted to eat khao pad grapao", Narongsak said referring to a Thai dish of meat fried with chilli and basil and served over rice.

Musk posted videos on Twitter of the aluminum sub being tested at a swimming pool Sunday midafternoon California time.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jesada said.

A massive worldwide search operation was launched and it took 10 days to locate the boys, who had taken shelter on a dry slope deep in the complex.

UPDATE 0841 ET: The rescue operation has been suspended for the night in Thailand.

On Sunday, divers held the first four boys close to bring them out, and each had to wear an oxygen mask to enable normal breathing, authorities said. Narongsak on Monday said their identities were being protected out of respect for the families of those still trapped inside the cave.

Extracting everyone could take up to four days, but the initial success raised hopes that could be done.

From the Vault: President Trump's first NATO Summit
Asked by DailyMail.com whether Mrs May should continue as PM, Mr Trump said "that is up to the people". Trump has requested closed-door meetings to take place without aides or the media involved.

The rescue operation to free a Thai soccer team from a cave is underway.

Two divers were to accompany each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when the first searchers found them. He said the mission would resume within "10 to 20 hours".

The extreme danger of the rescue effort was underscored last week when a former Thai Navy SEAL, Samarn Poonan, died after he fell unconscious while placing oxygen tanks deep inside the cave.

Anupong said divers need to place more air canisters along the underwater route, adding, that part of the process could take several hours.

Eight boys are still inside the cave and along with the team coach. One was that it was unknown how safe and dry the area where they had taken shelter would stay as Thailand's rainy season, which lasts until at least late October, picks up pace.
