Thai cave rescue sees four more boys freed

Thai cave rescue sees four more boys freed

The risky bid to rescue the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - got going again hours earlier on Monday after a break to replenish oxygen supplies and make other preparations deep inside the cave complex in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai province.

Rescuers working at a cave site in northern Thailand have suspended operations for the day after bringing four more boys out of the flooded cave system on Monday.

"People jump to think about the exotic stuff, but it's important to focus also on the common" stuff, Adalja said.

American space entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted that he was in Thailand on Tuesday with a prototype mini-sub, at the flooded cave where five members of a youth football team remained trapped.

Eighth-grade teacher Manusanit Chongpanyanon shared the good news Monday with the students that four of the wayward boys were rescued from the Tham Luang Nang Non cave on Sunday and another four were brought out on Monday.

But the chances of monsoon rains sending torrents of water into the cave and making the rescue effort too risky is never far from the minds of everyone involved in the operation.

The rescue has been underway ever since and eight of the boys are now out thanks to a team of expert divers.

The Thai soccer team ventured into the Tham Luang cave complex after practice and became trapped by rising waters more than a fortnight ago.

But Republicans are making a big push to convince voters that's exactly what Democrats do mean when they call for abolishing ICE. The term "sanctuary" refers to a jurisdiction that limits how far local officials will go to help enforce immigration law.

Operations kicked off at about 5am BST (11am Thai time) when a team of 18 elite Thai and global divers entered the cave.

The four who were rescued previously were taken to a hospital in Chiang Rai for evaluation.

The boys, who are in the Wild Boars soccer team, have captured hearts around the world as images of their smiling faces emerged from within the cave as they fought for their lives. But in the past few days, they have avoided the heavy downpours that can flood the cave.

The search and rescue operation has riveted people both in Thailand and internationally, with journalists from across the globe traveling to this town along the border with Myanmar to report on the ordeal. "With our informal assessment, we found that most of the boys are in green condition", Osatanakorn told reporters.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said lessons from the initial effort would be applied as two more groups of four were brought out of the cave. "The boys' strength, the plan - today we are ready like before". He had said fresh air tanks needed to be laid along the underwater route.

Authorities say the boys are being held close to divers and wear oxygen masks.

The death of military diver Saman Kunan on Friday underscored the huge risks the boys face.
