A risky mission to rescue 12 Thai schoolboys and their soccer coach trapped inside a flooded cave for more than two weeks began on Sunday and authorities managed to bring out its first two survivors on Sunday evening.

At 10 a.m. local time, 10 divers headed to chamber 9 where the boys are located and the others will remain along the route to assist.

"Everything is all good - weather, water and the boys' conditions", he said, adding, "We will speed up [the operation]". The rescued children were taken to the hospital, and officials said early Monday that they are strong and safe but need to undergo detailed medical checks. "We should hear good news again", Narongsak said.

The dozen boys between the ages of 11 and 16 are accompanied by their 25-year-old coach.

Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda said the same divers who took part in Sunday's rescue will return to extricate the others as they know the cave conditions and what to do.

The four boys guided from the cave Sunday in an urgent and unsafe operation that involved them diving through the cave's dark, tight and twisting passages were happy and in good health, authorities said.

Thai officials have been tight-lipped about the rescue operation, and would not comment on how many people were removed Monday.

Four of the boys' teammates and Thai dive experts were flown to the same hospital for treatment the day before.

That time, however, was later than the ongoing rescue mission was expected to last. Last week, a former Thai navy diver died while preparing for the operation.

The rescue mission was paused overnight in order for rescuers to rest and oxygen tanks be replaced.

There had been efforts to pump the water out but those were set back every time it rained.

The HNS has since apologised for the Croatian delegation members' behaviour, and Vida also expressed regret for his words. Federation Internationale de Football Association can fine or suspend players for political gestures at the World Cup.


"I'm hoping for good news", he said.

An ambulance is seen near the Tham Luang cave complex, where members of a soccer team trapped are in a flooded cave.

As of Monday morning, eight boys and their coach remained in the cave where they have been trapped by floods since June 23.

Monsoon flooding prevented the group from escaping and from allowing rescuers to find them right away.

The ordeal has riveted Thailand and captured the world's attention.

"As of now, eight people have left the cave", an official involved in the rescue operation told Reuters.

Meanwhile, Musk's team of SpaceX engineers created a "tiny, kid-size submarine using the liquid oxygen transfer tube of Falcon rocket as hull".

On Sunday, Musk tweeted a series of videos showing a team of divers testing the pod in the swimming pool at Palisades Charter High School. Divers had entered the cave nine hours earlier to begin the rescue efforts.

"The four children are well at Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital".

Musk on Sunday shared photos and videos of a small submarine-like vessel that could help rescue the group stranded on a muddy ledge about 2.5 miles from the cave's main entrance, and about half a mile below the surface.

Earlier Sunday morning, Trump tweeted that the USA government is working with Thailand's government in the rescue operation.
