Thai soccer team members rescued from cave

Four boys have been rescued

On Sunday, as news of the first rescues flashed worldwide, President Donald Trump tweeted for the first time about the soccer team, saying the United States was working "very closely with the government of Thailand to help get all of the children out of the cave and to safety".

Though four boys have been rescued as of Sunday night, the mission to extract the rest could take two to four days depending on the conditions in the cave. The next day (7th July), it was decided by the rescue operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn that it was not yet safe for the boys to dive out of the cave.

Parents say they haven't been told which boys were taken out of the cave, and have not been allowed to visit them in hospital.

He said 13 foreign divers and five Thai navy SEALs were taking part in the key leg of the rescue: taking the boys from where they have been sheltering and through dark, tight and twisting passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents. The pause will give divers time to prepare gear, including masks and refilling air tanks, for the next round of rescue efforts.

Officials called the four boys who have already been rescued, "hungry, but happy".

The first two boys - described as the weakest of the group - emerged from the Tham Luang cave complex and were immediately placed into ambulances where they were transported to Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital one hour away.

According to the Associated Press, Thai officials said the healthiest boys have been taken out of the cave first. Ten of the worldwide divers started the treacherous journey into the mountain, with the remaining three following four hours later at 2pm to operate as fresh back-up divers in the event of a crisis.

Known for his ambition and sometimes insane ideas, Musk promised to develop a submarine to aid in rescuing the boys. Officials said Monday that despite rain Monday morning, the weather was holding out so far.

Other media outlets have reported that Prajak "Note" Sutham, 14, Nattawut "Tle" Takamsai, 14 and Pipat Bodhi, 15, were the other three boys who had been rescued.

Sustained heavy rains could make the water rise to the shelf where the children were sitting, reducing the area to "less than 10 square meters", he added.

NowMedia will update this story as more information becomes available.

The 12 boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their coach, 25, went missing in Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai Province on June 23. Rising water levels, too, as the result of heavy rains is also an issue. However, they ended up starting the rescue effort a few hours earlier than planned.

Footage shared on Musk's Twitter account shows a group testing the device in a Los Angeles high school swimming pool.

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.

"Don't be anxious, I miss everyone".
