Parents of the four boys rescued on Sunday were allowed to see them through a glass window at the hospital, public health officials said on Tuesday, but they will be quarantined for the time being.

"We're here looking at this as a movie that could inspire millions of people around the globe", Scott said. Now, two boys along with their football coach remain in the caves.

He said that a second rescue operation was planned for 10-20 hours" later, as the team had "used all the oxygen', which would need replenishing before they could resume.

The 12 boys and the coach got trapped on June 23 when they set out to explore the Tham Luang cave after a soccer workout.

Other images circulating on social media include portraits, pictures and cartoons of Saman Kunan, the former Thai navy SEAL who died while trying to deliver oxygen to the boys last Friday.

In 2010, Man United hosted a group of miners from Chile who spent nearly 10 weeks underground before being rescued.

Though four boys and their coach are still to be saved, American film crews have reportedly traveled to the rescue site in Chiang Rai to begin work on a movie telling the tale of the Wild Boars team, Australian website news.com.au reported.

Among those rooting for their rescue were world leaders, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and billionaire inventor Elon Musk, who tasked his team of engineers with building a "kid-sized submarine" made out of rocket parts that would be able to move the young boys through the cave's narrow passageways.

The story has transfixed the Netherlands - as well as the rest of the world - after the 12 boys and their coach were lost inside the Tham Luang park cave complex more than two weeks ago.

Four boys and their soccer coach remain in the cave.

Each of the boys, ages 11 to 16 and with no diving experience, was guided out by a pair of divers in the three-day intricate and high-stakes operation. But they also warned heavy rain could hamper their efforts. Those evacuated so far have been taken to hospital in Chiang Rai for treatment and observation.

Monday's rescue effort took about nine hours, two fewer than the day before, in a sign of growing confidence and expertise.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.

Earlier evacuation plans had considered keeping the boys where they were found until the water levels lowered at the end of the rainy season.
