Divers rescue fifth boy from flooded Thailand cave

Four boys and their coach remain in the cave, but it's unclear if authorities will try to extract them in a group of four or try to take the five out in a single mission.

The Latest: The official who led the Thai cave rescue says the medic and three Thai navy SEAL divers who stayed with the trapped boys after they were found have left the flooded cave.

The 13, who became stranded on June 23 after heavy rains trapped them underground, are now recuperating in hospital in the nearest city, Chiang Rai.

"I want to hug them first", said another one of the boys' coaches.

All 12 of the boys trapped in a cave in northern Thailand have now been rescued, along with their 25-year-old coach, according to reports in the Mirror.

Australian doctor Richard Harris, who was specially requested by the diving team involved in the Thai cave rescue.

They came out one by one, with four emerging on Sunday, four on Monday, and the remaining four and the coach extracted Tuesday.

The team was also given anti-anxiety medication to calm them while the divers got them out.

Located a kilometre under the surface, the boys and their coach survived without food for 10 days.

Musk has expressed his desire to help with rescue efforts on social media, and orchestrated the creation of what he called a "kid-size submarine". 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 global diving, engineering and medical experts, among other professionals. "It's just an incredible thing and we think it will inspire millions around the world". "It was a world first", he said.

Trained divers from the U.S., the U.K., Canada and elsewhere flew to Thailand to offer their expertise and help escort the team out through the flooded cave passages.

"The heroes this time are people all over the world", he added, referring to the multinational team that assisted in the operation. We ask to pray that this operation is a success. "The power of love".

In response, Musk said Osatanakorn was "not the subject matter expert", adding that he believed he had been "inaccurately described as rescue chief", and should be more accurately referred to as the "former Thai provincial governor".

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around in hospital.

Volunteers from as far away as Australia and the United States helped with the effort to rescue the boys.

Dozens of military personnel and civilians began abandoning the cave, leaving behind hundreds of air tanks.

President Donald Trump joined those paying tribute to the rescuers. "Such a lovely moment - all freed, great job!"

Medical officials told reporters Tuesday that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and talking.

They were not the only members of football's fraternity to send their support to the Thai boys and their rescuers.
