Thai volunteers react as cave rescue concludes

Thailand Ministry of Public Health

The path to save the boys proved to be life-threatening as one of the volunteer divers, an ex-Thai Navy SEALs, died while on the rescue mission.

The mission to rescue the 12 boys and their football coach, who had become trapped in a series of caves in Thailand, continues today.

Rescued schoolboys are moved from a military helicopter to an awaiting ambulance at a military airport in Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 9, 2018. On Monday, at least 80 other rescue workers from several countries were there to help.

"I believe we have a special power: love", he said.

It's the news the entire world has been waiting more than two weeks to hear.

"It's really a miracle", Payap said.

"We have not been told which child has been brought out".

Amporn Sriwichai, an aunt of rescued coach Ekkapol Chantawong, was ecstatic.

The boys that have been rescued are aged 12-16, confirming that the youngest boy and the team's coach remain inside the cave.

The group had gone exploring in the massive Tham Luang Nang Non cave on June 23 after a soccer practice, and were cut off when a rainstorm flooded the cave. The rescue effort is slowed somewhat by the fact that the team must replenish supplies and oxygen tanks that line the 2.5-mile route out of the cave.

Thai Navy SEALS on Monday proudly announced their latest successful extraction of four youth soccer players trapped in a cave by adopting the U.S. Navy's "Hooyah!"

Rescuers had been racing against time because monsoon rains were expected to kick up this week. A massive effort to pump out water made the winding passageways more navigable.

The security personnel manhandled members of the press as they attempted to enter the court's premises. He further added that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz are returning Pakistan on July 13.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha visited the cave to inspect the operation and was quoted by Narongsak as saying he didn't want to see this kind of incident happen again on Thai soil. If they're chloroformed, how could they come out?

The identity of the rescued boys has not been confirmed by authorities. The boys also asked for, and were given, chocolate and bread.

The eight boys that have been rescued so far are weak but in good health, Kimberlee says.

He said two of them possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling".

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", he added.

Underscoring the danger behind the mission, Ivan Karadzic said, "They are diving in something considered an extremely hazardous environment".

Doctors were being cautious because of the infection risk and were isolating the boys in the hospital.

It was clear doctors were taking a cautious approach.

"Today we might have to wait longer, but it will be worth the wait", he added.

A few days later, Musk tweeted that engineers from SpaceX and Boring Company were sent to Thailand to see if they could offer any help in rescuing the trapped boys.

President Donald Trump joined those paying tribute to the rescuers. "Such a attractive moment — all freed, great job!"

Musk shared some of his thoughts via his Twitter account.
