"Our thoughts are with the family of ex-Navy SEAL diver Saman Kunan who died after delivering the boys oxygen".

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around their hospital beds. The death highlighted the risks and dangers involved in the mission to save the group. Helicopters transporting the boys roared overhead.

Musk has expressed his desire to help with rescue efforts on social media, and orchestrated the creation of what he called a "kid-size submarine". "Not just in Thailand, but around the world".

"It's really a miracle", she said. We ask to pray that this operation is a success.

Amporn Sriwichai, an aunt of rescued coach Ekkapol Chantawong, was ecstatic.

On June 23, the Wild Boar soccer team ventured into Tham Luang cave, one of Thailand's longest and toughest to explore, during heavy rains after soccer practice.The cave system is located about 825 kilometres north of Bangkok.

After divers brought out four of the boys Monday evening, authorities indicated the rescue operation would continue for a third day.

Cave-diving experts had warned it was potentially too risky to dive the youngsters out. A massive water pumping effort also made the winding cave more navigable.

"This mission was successful because we had power".

They were discovered 10 days later by two British divers, but a rescue had seemed all but impossible due to the necessity of swimming through water-filled passages.

The hazardous bid to rescue the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - started unexpectedly on Sunday when the rescue team said conditions were flawless for the evacuation. If they're chloroformed, how could they come out?

"At this moment (there are) no worrisome conditions, everyone is safe", Jesada said.

Rescuers working at a cave site in northern Thailand have suspended operations for the day after bringing four more boys out of the flooded cave system on Monday. They did get a treat, however: bread with chocolate spread that they'd requested. He added that all of them were generally healthy and in good spirits, thanks to their "high immunity" from playing football.

Overall they were feeling better, with no fever, and were getting around on their own and smiling.

It could be at least a week before they can be released from the hospital, he said. One of the boys initially had a heartbeat that was too slow, and some had low white-blood-cell counts, but they have since been stabilized.

The boys remain in quarantine but some of their parents have been able to see their children through the glass.

It was clear doctors were taking a cautious approach.
