READ MOREThai cave Divers prepare to resume rescue operation
An elite team of Thai Navy SEALs and foreign rescue divers on Tuesday began what they hoped would be a final push to rescue four boys and their soccercoach from a cave near the Thai-Myanmar border after extracting eight others through a labyrinth of tight passages.
Four boys and their coachremain 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.
Headcam footage shows the treacherous path the rescuers must navigate in order to retrieve the stranded school boys and their coach. But then oxygen started running low in the cave, and officials also anxious the little piece of real estate the boys and their coach have could be lost.
Thai Navy SEALS confirmed that the 9th boy had been extracted from the cave at 4:06 p.m.
Heavy rain started falling as soon as the four were removed from the cave. They eventually found a dry landing spot, where they waited for nine days before being found by two British divers.
The other, and perhaps more worrying, was that oxygen levels in the complex were falling close to unsafe levels. The distance from where the crew is trapped to the main entrance is about a half a mile, and the boys had to travel most of that distance underwater to reach freedom.
Crowds at the teeming rescue site cheer the good news, but attention soon turns to the hard task of getting the boys out safely.
Then came the letters carried out by divers who took oxygen, food and medicine to the boys' refuge as experts evaluated whether to dive them out or provision them, perhaps until monsoon rains usually subside in late October.
As we enter the day three of the Thai cave rescue mission, the public health permanent secretary Dr Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, from the Ministry of Public Health and Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital, spoke to the media this morning (local time) about the health of the eight boys who have been rescued so far.
