All 12 boys, coach now rescued and out of Thai cave

Somyot Poompanmoung now head of the Football Association of Thailand offered a reward $120,000 reward for information

An ambulance with flashing lights has left a cave complex in northern Thailand hours after the start of the second phase of an operation to rescue a youth soccer team trapped inside the flooded cave for more than two weeks.

Rescue workers in Thailand brought out on Monday two more people from a flooded cave where 12 boys and their soccer coach were trapped for more than two weeks, apparently taking the total number rescued to seven.

Divers had to hold the first four boys close to their bodies to bring them out and each had to wear an oxygen mask to enable normal breathing, authorities said.

Chiang Rai province's acting governor, Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue, voiced confidence Monday in the ongoing operation, provided the weather doesn't take a turn for the worse. "All eight are in good health, no fever. everyone is in a good mental state", Jedsada Chokdamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the public health ministry, said at Chiang Rai hospital where the boys were recuperating on Tuesday morning.

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 expect that if there is no unusual condition. the 4 boys, 1 coach, the doctor, and 3 SEALs who have been with the boys since the first day will will come out today", he told a press conference to loud cheering. "And we will do it faster because we are afraid of the rain".

It's a process that can take several hours. His colleagues said they would "not let the sacrifice of our friend go to waste".

They said the four boys already rescued are hungry but in good health in a hospital.

Video provided by rescuers shows the first four boys being stretchered out of Tham Luang cave complex, where they had been trapped since Jun 23.

Authorities then struggled to determine the best way to save the "Wild Boar" football team, with the group stuck on a shelf more than four kilometres (2.5 miles) inside the cave in pitch darkness. The rescue operations were thereafter suspended for the day, CNN reported.

A vehicle loaded with oxygen tanks is seen near the Tham Luang cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand.

But rescuing the remaining five people, which includes the boys' 25-year-old soccer coach, could take more than one operation, Narongsak said.

The only way to bring the boys and their coach out of the cave is by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents, as well as oxygen-depleted air.

Sunday's surprisingly quick extraction of the initial batch of four, who were guided out of a network of flooded tunnels by elite divers, fuelled optimism that the others would also be quickly rescued.

Pad kra pao, a Thai chicken dish, was said to be the first meal that the four boys asked for. They got trapped in the cave after a sudden spell of heavy rains blocked the entrance of the cave.

Cave rescue experts have said they consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving.

Writing in elegant Thai script, the boys urged their parents not to worry, adding that they hoped they wouldn't get too much homework after being rescued and couldn't wait to eat their favorite foods again.
