Thais have been fixated on the crisis, hoping desperately for the safe return of the 12 boys and their 25-year-old football coach, after they ventured into the Tham Luang cave complex after practice and became trapped by rising waters more than a fortnight ago.

Thirteen global divers and five Thai Navy SEAL divers will attempt to bring the boys through narrow, submerged passageways that claimed the life of a former Thai diver earlier this week.

Ten rescuers put on scuba gear and headed into the Tham Luang cave network around 11 a.m. local time on Monday to extract the remaining members of the junior soccer team and their coach, Thai officials said.

The Thai community lies on the border with Myanmar and it is where several of the boys on the soccer team go to school.

Channel News Asia reported seeing three helicopters flying from the cave toward Chiang Rai's city center, where the rescued boys are being treated in hospital.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told reporters in Australia that anesthetist and experienced cave diver Richard Harris is working with the Thai medical team inside the cave "to make the decisions about the order in which the boys were to be extracted".

Reporting from the scene, Ten Eyewitness News journalist Daniel Sutton posted footage of the rescue area as wet weather began setting in.

Rescuers have conceded that evacuating the boys is a race against time with monsoon rains expected to undo days of around-the-clock drainage of the deluged cave.

The same elite divers involved in Sunday's rescue would conduct the next one, given their knowledge of the cave conditions, Thailand's interior minister said in a statement.

They were discovered by a team of British divers on Monday and rescue operations have been meticulously planned all week.


The rescue operation is estimated to take ten hours, and end by 9 p.m.

Air tanks were planted along the route earlier on Monday.

The following day (24th June), local authorities found hand and foot prints belonging to the team, while relatives started a vigil outside the cave in hopes that they would be found soon.

The extraction of the four on Monday followed a similar pattern to the previous day, with the youngsters emerging in quick succession just before nightfall after navigating a treacherous escape route of more than four kilometres (2.5 miles). Two divers were assigned to each child to help them navigate the unsafe, narrow passageways.

An ambulance with flashing lights left the cave rescue area in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand, Monday. Some are not even strong swimmers, and have had to learn to dive in conditions that claimed the life of a former Thai Navy SEAL on Friday.

"If something changes, we'll stop", he said.

Images and identities of the rescued boys have not been released.

Musk shared via Twitter videos of his engineers testing its "kid-size submarine" - the same one that is apparently on its way to Thailand - underwater in a Los Angeles pool.

A device by Elon Musk's SpaceX and The Boring Company, created to help rescue the remaining members of a soccer team trapped in a flooded cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand, is being tested in a swimming pool in Los Angeles, California, in this still image taken from an undated video obtained from social media. If the tests are successful, the sub would be placed on a 17-hour flight to Thailand. "Their plan is designed for rescuing four".
