Rescuers bring 8th person out of Thai cave

Rescuers bring 8th person out of Thai cave”

Chiang Rai health officials have told the Thai media that the families of the children can see them later tonight but "no hugging, no kissing" until their blood results are known.

Earlier, Narongsak told a news conference a team had gone into the cave to rescue the remaining boys at 11 a.m. (0400 GMT), and he expected good news.

The saga has dominated global headlines, with the team spending nine days unaccounted for inside the cave before British divers found the emaciated and dishevelled group huddling on a muddy bank. The search and rescue operation has involved dozens of worldwide experts and rescuers, including a USA military team.

Chiang Rai province's acting governor, Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue, voiced confidence Monday in the ongoing operation, provided the weather doesn't worsen.

On Sunday, divers held the first four boys close to bring them out, and each had to wear an oxygen mask to enable normal breathing, authorities said. His colleagues said they would "not let the sacrifice of our friend go to waste".

The extraction of the four on Monday followed a similar pattern to the previous day, with the youngsters emerging in quick succession just before nightfall after navigating a treacherous escape route of more than four kilometres (2.5 miles) that included extremely narrow and flooded tunnels.

The team became trapped over two weeks ago.

A total of eight boys were removed from the cave on Sunday and Monday.

The generals and other officials overseeing the desperate operation to rescue 12 young soccer players and their coach from a flooded cave labyrinth in Thailand's sweltering far north were only half joking when they quipped Monday that success was in the hands of the rain god Phra Pirun. In an Instagram video, he posted his journey through the pitch-black flooded cave, lit only by a few torch-lights.

A Reuters witness near the Tham Luang cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai saw medical personnel carrying two people out of the cave to waiting ambulances on Monday evening.

"This morning they said they were hungry and wanted to eat khao pad grapao", Narongsak said, referring to a Thai dish of meat fried with chili and basil and served over rice.

Asked whether the remaining four "Wild Boars" team members and their coach would come out at the same time in the next rescue effort, he said: "It depends on the plan..."

Earlier reports said three had already reached Chamber 3, the main base for divers inside the camp. "We are giving them a physical examination". They were all treated for rabies, in case of bats in the cave, and tetanus, and set up with IV drips.

The rescued kids are now in the hospital, where they should receive the proper care before being released to their families. "The world soon loses interest and moves on to the next story, so it is extremely important that these survivors not be forgotten and be closely monitored so that they can receive the best possible support".

The boys will "be evaluated by doctors for five to seven days", Dr Chokedamrongsook said. Relatives were able to see them through a glass partition.
