Yesterday, the Facebook page of the Thai navy Seals, who have been central to the rescue operation, was updated to say "two days, eight boars" - a reference to the Wild Boars, the name of the boys' football team.

"All four boys have arrived at hospital, all are safe", Narongsak Osottanakorn, head of the rescue mission, told reporters of those freed on Monday.

Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, said the first four boys rescued, aged 12 to 16, are now able to eat normal food.

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.

It's been more than two weeks since the 12 boys and their soccer coach became trapped in the flooded Tham Luang cave at the Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in Chiang Rai.

"They are good physically and mentally", a health official said at a separate press conference from Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital.

Torrential rain fell overnight and through the morning in the area of the Tham Luang cave complex, where the Wild Boars youth soccer team had been stranded on June 23.

In total, 19 divers assisted in the rescue of the final five members of the group, said to be the one of the toughest rescue operations to date.

Capped by Fakhar's career-best 91 and Malik's masterclass, Pakistan had veered between ordinary to extraordinary all morning. But Pakistan struck regularly in the last 10 overs once Shadab broke the opening stand when Finch was caught at covers.


It could take Thai rescuers about four days to rescue all of the remaining team members.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces said that he was glad to hear that the rescue operations were successful.

Officials confirmed they had restarted the rescue effort for the third day at 10 a.m. local time, or 11 p.m.

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around their beds. Doctors were being cautious because of the infection risk and were isolating the boys in the hospital.

Rescuers are moving ahead quickly because they are afraid monsoon rains will completely flood the caves.

Information on the rescue operation, the health of those rescued - and their identities - has been tightly guarded by Thai authorities, but their names were being widely used in Thai media reports.

Described in a South Australia Ambulance Service statement as a "quiet and kind man" who "didn't think twice about offering his support on this mission", Harris was lauded for his work throughout the rescue effort. "Hopefully useful. If not, perhaps it will be in a future situation". "We have set the plan for four people so if they want to take five out (at the same time), then they need to change the plan".
