Thai cave rescue: Here’s how Thai soccer team became trapped in cave

Thai cave rescue: Here’s how Thai soccer team became trapped in cave

Divers began a search operation on June 25, and the group was finally found - all alive - by British divers on July 2.

"None of the eight boys has fever today", he added in the clearest update yet on the condition of the boys rescued from Tham Luang cave.

Nargonsak said this phase may take longer than the previous two rescue missions.

The third phase of an operation to rescue four remaining boys and their football coach trapped inside a flooded Thai cave is underway.

While their parents have been able to visit them, they have been kept separate "through the glass because doctors are concerned". They did get a treat, however: bread with chocolate spread that they'd requested.

The plight of the boys and their coach has drawn worldwide attention since they became trapped when they went into the cave after soccer practice on June 23.

Rescue workers wearing protection suits wait for some of the rescued schoolboys at military airport in Chiang Rai on Monday.

According to Reuters, the children - they have low body temperatures and two have lung infections -will remain quarantined in a hospital for the next week to undergo testing.




"We will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration", Federation Internationale de Football Association said in a statement. Medical experts say they are in high spirits and generally healthy. "We wish them all the best for the future". Each team member has to spend time in isolation for fear of spreading infection; health officials expect all of them to be in the hospital for at least a week.

The rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped, officials had said.

Asked if their actions might be seen as insensitive at such a delicate time, Smith said: "There's going to be other production companies coming in so we have to act pretty quickly".

"We were obviously very afraid of any kind of panic from the divers", he said, adding he was in awe of the boys' ability to stay calm.

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

Rescuers have been pumping out flood waters but scattered monsoon rain has raised the danger of more water percolating back down through the limestone and coursing through the tunnels.

Last week, Musk said he was sending teams to Thailand from his private space exploration firm, SpaceX, and engineering firm, Boring Co. which is developing tunneling systems for transport projects.
