Elon Musk Sends Mini Submarine to Rescue Boys Trapped in Thai Cave

The 12 boys and their soccer coach were rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand on Tuesday after being trapped deep within the labyrinth for 18 days.

Even as a massive operation is underway to rescue the remaining members of the Thai soccer team trapped in a flooded cave, a diver involved with the mission highlighted the risks involved in carrying out the rescue.

Narongsak Osot-tanakorn, Former Governor of Chiang Rai who heads the rescue operation, said divers hope to rescue the last four boys and their coach from the cave Tuesday.

So far eight boys aged between 12 and 16 have been led out of the cave system by a team of expert divers over two days.

Nargonsak said this phase may take longer than the previous two rescue missions, which both lasted several hours.

Medical chiefs reported on Tuesday morning that the eight boys rescued on Sunday and Monday were in relatively good mental and physical conditions.

But the initial euphoria at finding them dissipated as authorities struggled to devise a safe plan to get them out, with the shelf more than four kilometres (2.5 miles) deep inside the cave and the labyrinth of tunnels leading to them filled with water.

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.

Soccer's governing body, FIFA, has invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday if they're well enough to attend.

Divers who took part in the operation said the boys were heavily sedated to avoid anxiety as they went through the dark, narrow, underwater passageways.

The first four boys are healthy and can eat regular food, Thongchai said at Monday's press briefing, adding that those in the second group suffering from lung inflammation were getting better.

In a day of high drama, the remaining five boys emerged in groups as evening approached, guided out by worldwide divers and the Seals, who have played an integral role throughout an unprecedented rescue mission. We wish them a speedy recovery.

In that mission, two divers accompanied each boy, guided by a rope. They will remain in hospital in the nearby city of Chiang Rai for a week, followed by a week's recuperation at home.

American billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted Monday that he had visited the cave and left behind a mini-sub rescue vehicle "in case it may be useful in the future".

Dr Harris was supposed to be on holiday at the time of the rescue, but cancelled it to come to the aid of the Wild Boars football team.
