First boys emerge from cave

  • Former navy SEAL died from lack of oxygen while trying to rescue Thai soccer team in cave authorities say

According to rescue officials, he is among the weakest in the group, in part because he gave the boys his share of the limited food and water they had with them in the early days.

Maj. Gen. Chalongchai Chaiyakam said the 13 "will continuously come out in approximately two to four days, which all may change depending on weather and water conditions", The Associated Press earlier reported.

Four boys have been rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand, the head of the rescue effort said on Sunday.

The rescued four boys are at a hospital near the cave.

One of two ambulances leave the cave in northern Thailand hours after operation began to extract the trapped youth soccer players and their coach, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, in northern Thailand, on Sunday. Helicopters and several ambulances were seen departing from the cave area, though there was no official announcement of whom they were carrying. 'I know that we, the USA side, are prepared to stay as long as it takes to support the Thai operation.' She added that the core team consists of 17 people.

"We are very happy with the water situation here", he said. He confirmed that the boys traveled 1km underwater and the first was rescued at 5:40 p.m. local time. Osottanakorn said they will resume in 10 to 20 hours because "we've used all the oxygen". Although, dozens more divers are on hand to assist. This week, a former Thai navy diver died during one of the rescue missions. "I promise to take the very best care of the kids", he wrote.

"Definitely, you can feel it that it has an effect, but we're moving on".




Adding to the theory is the relatively short time it took to retrieve the four boys from the cave because of the lower water levels, which meant they could wade through some sections of the underground labyrinth instead of diving.

In the hours preceding the rescue, a letter the boys had sent to their families was published on the Thai SEALs' Facebook page. I've told Yod to get ready to take me out for fried chicken.

The boys have been trapped for more than two weeks in the cavern, as waters have been rising from the monsoon rains.

A spokesperson for the rescue operation told CNN that it would take multiple attempts to rescue all those trapped in the cave. Those conditions won't last if the rain resumes, he said.

Depleting oxygen levels in the cave have also been a cause for concern over the past week.

Thai officials said Friday that oxygen levels inside the cave plummeted to a risky 15% - shy of the US Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration's "optimal range" of oxygen, which is between 19.5% and 23.5%.

However, the boys and their coach are facing malnutrition, dehydration and other unknown ailments.
