Ambulance Leaves Thai Cave on 2nd Day of Rescue Operation
10 July, 2018, 17:00
One boy and the football team's coach remain inside, along with a few rescue crew who have been keeping them company. Last week, Musk sent engineers from two of his companies, SpaceX and Boring Co., to assist Thai officials in the rescue effort, which comprises a large team of worldwide diving, engineering and medical experts, among other professionals.
The hoped-for final chapter in an ordeal that has gripped the world came after elite foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALs escorted eight members of the "Wild Boars" football team out of the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand on Sunday and Monday.
Cave rescue experts have said they consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving.
He asked for three more days to complete the rescue mission.
A massive worldwide search operation was launched and it took 10 days to locate the boys, who had taken shelter on a dry slope, deep in the complex.
At a news conference, 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, though they can't yet take the spicy dishes favoured by many Thais.
"Today we might have to wait longer, but it will be worth the longer wait", the rescue chief said, per The Australian.
"All five will be brought out at the same time today", Mr Osottanakorn said.
A small number of Navy SEALs, including a doctor who stayed with the team for a week after their discovery, remain in the cave system and are expected to emerge soon.
US President Donald Trump joined in the celebrations, tweeting "Such a handsome moment - all freed, great job!" while British Prime Minister Theresa May saluted the "bravery of all those involved" in the rescue.
Rescue crews ready themselves to go back into the cave. Two are being treated for a "minor" lung infection.
Apart from the coach, the age ranges given by the doctor indicate that the youngest boy in the group - 11-year-old Chanin Wiboonrungrueng - is still in the cave.
Authorities will likely look for signs of Histoplasmosis, also known as "cave disease", an infection caused by breathing in spores of a fungus often found in bird and bat droppings, according to the Mayo Clinic. However, it can not be spread between humans.
4.08pm: The BBC has released an infographic on how the boys and their football coach are being rescued.
The rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped, officials had said.
The coach was in a weaker condition, having sacrificed his share of their meagre food supplies to give to the boys during the nine days before further help arrived.
Narongsak would not identify the rescued boys. They had been trapped inside the Tham Luang cave for more than two weeks.
Divers, engineers, medics and others have flown in from around the world to assist.
After garnering headlines with initial ideas of installing a giant air tube inside the cave complex and using his firm's penetrating radar to dig holes to reach the boys, Musk offered his idea for the mini-sub.
Despite being turned away, Musk put out an optimistic tweet saying he was 'leaving [the submarine] here in case it may be useful in the future'. Thai Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-ocha visited the hospital Monday, and spoke to relatives and hospital workers.
The 31-year-old averaged 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 25.6 minutes per game across 61 games (15 starts) in Houston . The Rockets jumped from 26th in points-per-game allowed all the way up to sixth in his one season.
Not the church, not you and I, but professionals that deal with this kind of illness", said Mercado. "Do it. The president said in his latest address: "Every Filipino is entitled to criticise me as a matter of right.
And singer Raye, 20, who worked with Cheryl on her new album, said: "We've gone proper personal and unveiled some layers". They plan to work their way through this hard time together as they continue to co-parent their young son.
It raised hope and excitement that the remaining two - including the team's 25-year-old coach - could soon follow. They were still wearing sunglasses as a precaution while their eyes adjusted to the light, he added.

In addition, the Spanish champions have struggled to register non-EU players into the team due to La Liga's regulation. As for Paulinho himself, it seems to be a logical move considering the fact that he will turn 30 later this month.
