Ninth boy emerges from Thai cave on final day of rescue

Ninth boy emerges from Thai cave on final day of rescue”

Divers on Monday launched the second phase of a rescue operation at the Thailand cave where members of a youth soccer team are trapped.

They had been trapped inside the Tham Luang cave for more than two weeks.

A person with knowledge of the rescue said just before the eleventh person was spotted, that 10 people had been brought out.

The youngsters, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach enter the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand during heavy rains after football practice.

"Today is 10 July".

All eight boys rescued on the first two days are being treated in an isolation ward in a Chiang Rai hospital.

The most unsafe part of the journey out of the labyrinth cave system is the first kilometer, during which they are required to squeeze through a narrow flooded channel. It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said. The rescue mission is still underway. Today, you get some good rest.

Narongsak would not identify the rescued boys.

Rescue operation chief Narongsak Osotthanakorn, former governor of Chiang Rai, made the announcement at the Pong Pha tambon administration organisation near the cave on Tuesday morning.

"Now they have no fever and can do their normal activities", Chokedamrongsuk said.

Since it is rainy season, you can expect nearly everyday you will get some type of rain.

For the five still stranded, it's been 17 days since they've been outside.

Operations to pump water out of the cave went on despite heavy rain showers on Sunday and Monday.

Officials say the group are being taught how to use diving masks and breathing apparatuses.

Divers involved in the rescue described treacherous conditions, with fast-moving shallow water passing through very narrow passages. Rescue operations have halted for the night and will restart on Tuesday. A few hours later, Michael Safi, a Guardian reporter, confirmed that the sixth boy had been rescued. He said a medic and three SEALS in the cave, who've been looking after those trapped, will also come out.

Divers have gone in for the second rescue attempt, Thai officials said. It takes several hours.

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.

However, unlike Sunday and Monday when only four were brought out each day due to logistical constraints, rescuers would try to extract all of the remaining five in one operation, Narongsak said. He had said fresh air tanks needed to be laid along the underwater route.

On Monday, family members told CNN officials hadn't revealed which children had been rescued and who was still inside the cave Families had vowed to wait at the cave entrance until all of the boys, and their coach, were taken out. Doctors were being cautious because of the infection risk and were isolating the boys in the hospital.

How will the kids' mental health be effected?

This is a developing story.

"There's a likelihood of resilience, assuming everyone comes out, there's no fatalities, I think the worst is behind them", Adesman said. All those extracted reportedly showed signs of infection.
