They're sayin' this is an extremely complicated rescue with a fuq-ton of nuances that complicate it even more.

4 boys from Thai soccer team rescued from flooded cave, next phase to begin in 'about' 10 hours
Last night, I heard that 3 of the kids were in need of medical attention, and they were going to be evacuated in order of that need...That sounds like the most dire boys are out...

Thailand cave rescue effort put on hold to replenish air tank supplies

Efforts to rescue eight boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Thailand could take hours longer to resume than initially anticipated as rescuers replenish their air tanks.

Authorities temporarily halted their efforts Monday morning to put the new tanks in place along the cave's exit route. A previous rescue mission, which saw four boys removed from the cave, had used up the initial supply of tanks.

According to estimates, phase two of the rescue operation would not begin before 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. local time Monday (9 a.m. or 10 a.m. ET). Officials initially estimated the second phase of the mission would begin 10 to 12 hours after the first roughly 7 a.m. local time Monday.

Officials told The Associated Press that it could take up to four days to complete the rescue.

After the four boys were removed from the cave Sunday evening, heavy rain started falling.

Authorities have said the monsoons could cause water to rise in the cave. That along with dwindling oxygen levels, added to the urgency of getting the team out. Earlier efforts to pump water out of the cave have been set back by heavy downpours.

The first of the four boys rescued Sunday excited the Tham Luang Nang Non cave just before 6 p.m. local time, and his three other team members followed shortly after, Chiang Rai provincial acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said. The boys traveled 0.62 miles underwear before they reached safety.

The children were transported to the hospital one by ambulance and three by helicopter once they were able to leave the cave.

The boys' names nor their conditions were released, but the head of the joint command center coordinating the search said he met with the children and described them as being in "perfect" health and called today's mission the "best situation."

Officials had estimated the first phase of the rescue mission would take 12 hours, giving the divers six hours into the cave and back. However, Sunday's mission took 7 hours and 40 minutes.

A group of 18 divers 13 foreign and five Thai began the operation to remove the boys from the cave Sunday. Narongsak had called the mission "a D-Day for our operation."

"I confirm that we are at war with water and time from the first day up to today," Narongsak added. "Finding the boys doesn't mean we've finished our mission. It is only a small battle we've won, but the war has not ended. The war ends when we win all three battles the battles to search, rescue and send them home."

The boys and their coach, whose team is known as the Wild Boars, became stranded when they were exploring the cave after a practice game on June 23.

Monsoon flooding cut off their escape route and prevented rescuers from finding them for almost 10 days.

The ordeal has riveted Thailand and captured the world's attention. The search and rescue operation has involved dozens of international experts and rescuers, including a U.S. military team.

Elon Musk's Space X rocket company plans to send a "tiny kid-sized submarine" in case it's needed. A spokesman for Musk's Boring Co. tunneling unit, which has four engineers at the cave, said in an email Sunday that Thai officials had requested the device and that divers have determined it could potentially help the children through narrow, flooded cave passageways.

Musk said on Twitter the aluminum sub would be tested until Sunday midafternoon California time before being placed on a 17-hour flight to Thailand. He posted a video of a diver testing the device in a pool.

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday: "The U.S. is working very closely with the Government of Thailand to help get all of the children out of the cave and to safety. Very brave and talented people!"

Fox News' Jeff Paul and Katherine Lam and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Just looked it up. They got 4 more kids. That leaves 4 and the coach still trapped.

Gawd I hope they get them all. Major prayers.

Rescued from the Cave, Thai Soccer Team Gets Quarantined: Here's Why


Officials say medical evaluations of the boys will likely take three to five days but could take as long as seven, CBS News correspondent Anna Werner reports from Chiang Rai.

The first issues doctors will be looking for are dehydration and malnutrition. During the two weeks the boys were in the cave, they didn't have proper nutrition or exercise. After they were rescued, some of the boys asked for a Thai dish of meat with chili and basil.

The hospitalized boys are being kept in isolation, due to fear of infection.


The head of the rescue mission says their plan is based on bringing four people out each day. That's partly because it takes about 20 hours to re-set all of the oxygen tanks they use inside the cave during the rescues. So it is not clear if all five of those remaining inside will get out on Tuesday.

Rescuers have been taking the strongest boys out first. It may seem counterintuitive, but the reasoning for that was that officials want the boys who have the best chance of surviving to get through the escape route first.

They are now all out of the cave and headed to the hospital. Awesome job by all of those involved. I heard that a couple of the boys are being treated for pneumonia. Praying for a swift recovery and reunion with their family and friends.

The 'infection' from what I've heard may be what some call 'cave disease' is from the accumulation of bat and bird guana dust that causes pneumonia like symptoms.

I'm thrilled that they got them all out. I don't use the term loosely, but the divers and teams really are heroes.
