The operation to rescue 12 boys and their coach from a flooded cave in Thailand kicked off early on Sunday, a couple hours after Musk had predicted his project would be complete and nearly a day earlier than he said he would be able to bring the sub to Thailand. But a father of one of the boys told Reuters parents "can't visit our boys in hospital" and that "we have not been told which child has been brought out".
It is understood the same divers who rescued the first four boys have been given the job of getting the remaining team members out. There are reports the divers re-entered the cave around 1pm local time Monday. Efforts to bring the remaining eight boys and their adult coach to the surface will resume on Monday morning.
Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said her expectation was that four more boys would be rescued on Monday.
"The operation went much better than expected", said Chiang Rai acting governor Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is overseeing the mission.
The four people rescued Sunday are now receiving medical treatment at Prachanukroh hospital in Chiang Rai, around 35 miles away, where the eighth floor has been reserved for the soccer team, their coach and their families - who have maintained a patient vigil by the entrance to the cave while the boys have been underground.
He had also suggested the second rescue attempt would involve the same crack team of five Thai navy SEALs, along with 13 global "all-star" divers. He said that process can take several hours.
Falling oxygen levels, and with numerous boys not able to swim well, present further risks should they panic as they are guided slowly through the pitch-black waters.
Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk shared photos and videos of a metallic pod that may help rescue a group of boys trapped in a cave in Thailand. Officials said Monday that despite rain Monday morning, the weather was holding out so far. "The war ends when we win all three battles - the battles to search, rescue and send them home".
The boys, aged between 11 and 16, went missing with their 25-year-old coach after soccer practice on June 23, setting out on an adventure to explore the cave complex near the border with Myanmar and celebrate a boy's birthday.
The story of the "Wild Boars" soccer team, who first ventured into the caves more than two weeks ago before flood waters trapped them inside, has gripped Thai and global media. On Sunday, he tweeted videos showing the submarine being submerged in the Palisades Charter High School swimming pool in Los Angeles.
Rescuers woke to gloomy skies and potential thunderstorms following a night of heavy monsoonal rains lashing the mountainous region.
"I promise to take the very best care of the kids", he wrote.

Some poor bowling from Indian pacers, who either sprayed the ball or bowled too short, helped England in making a bright start. Chahar then got his first global scalp with a slower delivery that the unsafe Roy flicked to Dhoni behind the stumps.
