Thai Cave Rescue Operation Suspended After 4 More Boys Freed

Thai Cave Rescue Operation Suspended After 4 More Boys Freed

The incredible rescue has been deemed a miracle by many, but the operation wasn't without tragedy.

According to the rescue operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn, the United Nations also dispatched many experienced divers to help. 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.

"To not waste time, because of the rain conditions, the third mission has been planned and prepared since early this morning", Narongsak said.

After pondering for days how to get the 13 out, a rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

Last week, a former Thai navy diver died while preparing to rescue the team.

Yesterday, rescue planners brought all five remaining members of the stranded survivors out in less than nine hours. "But we will have a psychiatrist to evaluate them", he said, while stressing that the boys are "happy and smiling".

Two of the boys are being treated for potential lung infections - but they're expected to make a full recovery. However, it can not be spread between humans.

The names of the boys rescued have not been revealed out of respect to the relatives of the youngsters who remain trapped inside.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Mr Jedsada said.

Federation Internationale de Football Association invited the team to attend the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday but the team can not be there for medical reasons, world soccer's governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association said on Tuesday. This seems less likely now given the need for the boys to undergo further tests.

The youngsters and their coach had been stuck in the cave since 23 June, after rising water levels trapped within the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex in Chiang Rai.

Divers, engineers, medics and others have flown in from around the world to assist.

Musk, the billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, Inc., vowed to help rescue efforts by designing a mini-submarine that could navigate through the cave's tight canals.

In terms of specs, Musk responded to the following tweet saying that the tube is only 31 cm (around 1 foot) in diameter-a few cm smaller than the cave's reported tightest points.

"Mini-sub is ready if needed".

The last three members of the "Wild boar" football team and their coach was rescued today ending a three day rescue attempt that had caught the world's attention.
