Thailand cave rescue: Eight boys pulled out, five still to be saved as operation ends for the day

Will Elon Musk’s ‘kid submarine’ be used in Thai rescue?

To date, each rescued boy has been escorted through the labyrinthine cave by two divers, each of them holding an oxygen tank that feeds to the survivor's mask.

Thai authorities said the four boys rescued from the cave are hungry but in good health. Relief is starting to break the tension that's built over more than two weeks. Furthermore, by drinking the cave water - even if they licked water dripping from the walls and didn't drink water on the ground - the boys could have contracted lots of bacteria that could also cause gastrointestinal problems. Numerous boys do not know how to swim.

Complex and narrow, the system is not dissimilar to the caves being navigated by rescue divers in Thailand.

Before resuming the rescue Monday, officials said they hoped to free all the boys by the end of the day, according to ABC News.

After rescuing the four boys, the officials paused the operation for at least 10 hours to fill the oxygen tanks that were used.

As rescuers began a daring extraction of the boys and their coach from the cave over the weekend, Musk said he had sent a "kid-size submarine" to the country to assist in the massive rescue effort.

The process includes a mixture of walking, wading, climbing and diving along guide ropes already in place.

The 18 experienced divers have gathered from the United Kingdom, United States, China, Australia, Japan, Laos and Myanmar.

The boys had a good appetite but were mainly being given bland, easily digestible foods.

Authorities have been rushing to extract the boys, ages 11-16, and their coach from the cave as monsoon rains bore down on the mountainous region in far northern Chiang Rai province.
