Hopes rise that all will be rescued from Thai cave today

Thailand Cave Rescue Saves 8 Children Trapped For Weeks Underground

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.

"If nothing goes wrong the remaining boys, the doctor (a Thai Navy Seal medic) and the three (Thai) Navy Seals who have staying with the boys since the beginning of the mission will come out this evening".

The children would be in the hospital for up to 10 days, the doctor said, adding that they require 30 more days to recover at home. "It was Mission Possible for Team Thailand".

Thailand's prime minister, Prayuth Chan-o-cha, said the boys were given anti-anxiety medication to help with their rescue.

"This mission was successful because we had power". "We love each other".

"I'm very happy and relieved".

The first four boys were removed from the cave Sunday. The mission today is more hard than in the past two days, with all nine to be brought out.

Phuwadech Kamnguen, a 14-year-old best friend of one of the trapped boys, said he's looking forward to eating KFC with the team again. "We were so scared and anxious".

Authorities mulled ideas such as drilling holes into the mountain or waiting months until monsoon rains ended and they could walk out, with the rescue chief at one point dubbing the efforts to save them "Mission Impossible".

He told reporters: "They're obviously in the quarantine phase, which takes time".

Four more boys reach Chamber 3 in cave
It is reported that the remaining four youngsters and their coach will remain in the cave for another night. Getting to and from where the boys are has been an exhausting round trip, even for the experienced divers.

The eight rescued boys were recuperating in a hospital from their ordeal huddled together on a tiny patch of higher ground where they had sought refuge after a rainstorm flooded the massive Tham Luan Nang Non cave complex as they were exploring it after soccer practice on June 23.

Four of the boys were carried out on stretchers on Sunday and four more on Monday.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jesada said.

In his letter when he was trapped, Ake apologised to the parents for taking the boys into the cave network, but several parents replied to say they did not blame him.

Jesada said the group had been given x-rays and blood tests, adding that two presented suspected symptoms of pneumonia but were given antibiotics and were "in a normal state".

But at a Tuesday press conference they were optimistic about the progress of the "Wild Boars" to emerge so far, in two long and complex days of operations to free them.

Postcards, letters and drawings from around Thailand have been pouring into a local government office near the cave that is being used as the media and volunteer center.

"Please get out fast!" read another. More worrying, however, oxygen levels in the chamber where the boys sought refuge were falling.

The Space-X and Tesla founder arrived in Thailand with a miniature "kid sized" submarine Monday.

"Just returned from Cave 3". "Mini-sub is ready if needed". It is made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after kids' soccer team.
