Thai rescue: How doctor chose which boys to save

Thai rescue: How doctor chose which boys to save

A search led by Thai navy SEALs and joined by volunteer divers from around the world was fruitless until Monday, when a pair of British divers came up on the hungry but apparently healthy team.

Musk said on Twitter the aluminum sub would be tested until Sunday midafternoon California time before being placed on a 17-hour flight to Thailand. To get a sense of the overwhelming worldwide interest in the effort, the post attracted tens of thousands of likes and more than 10,000 comments within an hour.

As night fell, the operation to rescue the remaining eight boys - some as young as 11 and weak swimmers - and their coach was called off until today.

He also said rescue workers now need "about 10 hours" to prepare for the next phase of the rescue mission.

The mission to save all the trapped is a race against the clock with heavy rain expected this week which would again flood the tunnels with fast-flowing, rising water. Monsoon flooding cut off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for 10 days.

Authorities did not reveal the identity of the boys as they were brought out.

The local government said in a statement later on Sunday that 10 global divers had progressed into the cave and some had reached the point where the team is.

He also says the families of the boys have been informed about the risky mission.

The latest images out of Chiang Rai show heavy clouds hanging low around the mountains where crews are racing to rescue the remaining members of the soccer team and their coach. "Based on the complexity and difficulty of the cave environment it is unknown how long it might take and how many children would exit the cave", the governor further explained.

He said the next operation will be conducted on Tuesday.

BILLIONAIRE tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has come up with a radical plan to rescue the soccer team trapped in a cave in Thailand.

Four boys were pulled to safety on Sunday in a daring rescue run by Thai Navy Seals who escorted each of the four to safety after they swam a hazardous kilometre underwater.

Narongsak said that the "same multinational team" that went into the cave on Sunday to retrieve the first four boys was deployed on Monday.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told reporters in Australia that anesthetist and experienced cave diver Richard Harris is working with the Thai medical team inside the cave "to make the decisions about the order in which the boys were to be extracted". "We have to be 100 percent confident that there is no risk to the boys before we evacuate", provincial governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said. He said that process can take several hours.

Elon Musk is testing equipment created to help rescue the remaining members of a Thai youth soccer team who are trapped in a cave, the Tesla CEO tweeted on Sunday.

In one, Pheerapat, nicknamed "Night", whose 16th birthday the group were celebrating in the cave when they became stuck on 23 June, said: "I love you, Dad, Mum and my sister".
