Newest rescues are healthier than first boys freed from cave

May JohnsonJul 10, 2018

The second phase of a rescue operation has ended for the day, with more than half of the Thai soccer team rescued from the cave.

The families of Thai boys rescued after a harrowing two weeks trapped in a cave deep underground will be allowed to see them today, but will be told not to hug or kiss them until health checks are complete.

Billionaire Elon Musk has a unique proposition for saving the boys' soccer team trapped in a Thai cave.

Though it rained again Sunday, it did not affect the water levels in the cave, said Narongsak Osatanakorn, the leader of the command center in charge of the rescue operation.

Giving an update on the four boys pulled from the cave Sunday, Narongsak said, "This morning, they said they were hungry and wanted to eat khao pad grapao" - a popular Thai rice dish of meat stir-fried with basil and chili peppers. The boys brought out of the cave Sunday and Monday are being treated in a hospital in Chiang Rai, but are being kept in quarantine for now by doctors concerned that they could contract or spread infection. Monsoon flooding blocked off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days.

Four were rescued over the weekend. "But there are caves where. explorers could go in and be trapped by rising water during like a heavy rain and trapped in an air pocket", Brick said.

Authorities have been rushing to extract the boys, ages 11-16, and their coach from the cave as the annual monsoon bears down on the mountainous region in far northern Chiang Rai province.

The boys smile as a Thai Navy Seal medic help injured children inside a cave in Mae Sai, northern Thailand.

Meanwhile, health experts said they would conduct a check-up of the boys on parameters like oxygen, malnutrition, dehydration, post-traumatic stress, and other psychological effects. The dive to rescue the boys in the Tham Luang Cave area is risky and requires divers to hold them close and dress them in scuba gear, Reuters reported.

In a testament to the closeness of James' inner-circle, there is essentially no certainty of what he'll do in free agency. With that being said , here are the top five potential free agent targets for the Los Angeles Lakers this summer.

Musk has been tweeting about the rescue effort for days and said he is "amazed by the bravery, resilience & tenacity of kids & diving team in Thailand".

Thai officials have been tight-lipped about the rescue operation, and would not comment on how many people were removed Monday.

"All conditions are still as good as they were yesterday", Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osattanakorn said, as relayed by the AP.

The operation on Monday went more smoothly than on Sunday and took two hours less as the practice became more refined, he said.

A BCRC spokesman said: "The UK divers are part of the core team, so they will be actively involved and that will include escorting each child out through the flooded passage".

"I beg Phra Pirun because the Meteorological Department said that from Monday on there will be continuous rain", Major General Bancha Duriyapan said.
Students and teachers at Maesaiprasitsart school, attended by numerous children, have been given instructions to avoid "talk that hurts [the boys'] feelings", said teacher Thongyaud Kejorn.

But Brick said unlike Minnesota, the Tham Luang cave complex is much warmer, which may have helped the boys and their coach avoid hypothermia before help arrived.

12 young children and their football coach have been stuck in a partially flooded cave in Thailand's Chiang Rai province since June 23rd, and they're beginning to run out of oxygen.
