Elon Musk tests ‘tiny, kid sized submarine’ for Thai cave rescue

Second day of Thailand cave rescue

Nine people remained trapped in the cave, including the team's coach, after four boys were rescued on Sunday, the first day of the rescue operation.

Elite divers began a rescue mission on Sunday, successfully escorting four of them out, and were aiming to extract the others swiftly before fresh monsoon rains made escape impossible.

Four of the boys were rescued on Sunday, and authorities said the next phase could begin any time within a 10-hour window that began about 7 a.m. Monday.

Rescue mission chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said it had resumed, with divers re-entering the cave at 11am local time (4pm NZT).

But with oxygen levels inside dropping to unsafe lows and the prospect of heavy rain flooding the area completely, authorities decided they had to move quickly and take the group out through the water-filled tunnels.

Four more young football players were rescued Monday from a flooded cave on day two of a risky rescue mission that so far has been an outrageous success. A family member told CNN Monday that they hadn't been told which boys had been pulled out, and who is still trapped in the cave.

Four more young footballers and their coach at the Mu Pa (WIld Boar) Academy Mae Sai, Ekkapol Chantawong, are still on the ledge.

Among those are U.S. military partners, British cave diving experts - including the two men who first located the boys a week ago - and rescue workers from Australia, China and other countries. Authorities say they want to get them out now, given the looming threat of more rain and floods. On Monday night, Musk posted on Twitter that he had "just returned' from the still-flooded cave, with photos of the rescue site where a team of swelling global experts have been working around the clock since the team was found. We should hear good news again", Narongsak said. She added that the four boys rescued on Sunday were hungry and asked for a local dish.

"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.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha plans to host a thank-you party for all the rescue teams, Mr Narongsak said.

Two divers accompanied each of the boys, all of whom have been learning to dive only since July 2, when the first searchers found them.

The death Friday of a former Thai navy SEAL, Saman Gunan, underscored the risks. Four boys and their football coach are still trapped inside the cave. They became trapped in the cave after heavy rain flooded the passageways inside.

Medical teams previously said concerns included hypothermia and an airborne lung infection known as "cave disease", which is caused by bat and bird droppings. He said rescuers told the parents that the "strongest children" would be brought out first.

"No hugging" or "touching" would be allowed between the boys and their relatives, however, until all medical tests are completed, the official said. "I'm quite emotional as a father - everybody has this feeling because we feel like it's our children who are inside the cave".

A green tarpaulin is used to cover the entrance of the Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital, where the four rescued boys are being kept in quarantine.

"In the next few hours we will have good news".
