Eight Wild Boar soccer boys rescued

Officials said at a news conference that the parents of the rescued boys, whose names have not been released, have not yet been allowed to have physical contact with them, pending more extensive examination of their physical condition. Legal action was underway, they said. The boys and their coach have been stranded about four kilometers inside the cave.

Narongsak said that the "same multinational team" that went into the cave on Sunday to retrieve the first four boys was deployed on Monday. He is still believed to be one of the nine inside the cave.

Narongsak would not identify the rescued boys.

The only way to bring everyone out of the cave is by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water, strong currents and oxygen-depleted air. Thai navy SEALs say four of the 12 soccer team members are out of the cave.

The Thai authorities have been pumping out water from the cave system ever since locating the missing soccer team, but that wasn't enough to remove all the water.

"As of now, eight people have left the cave", an official involved in the rescue operation told Reuters.

Authorities have said extracting the entire team from the cave could take up to four days, but two straight days of success raised hopes that it could be done faster. Narongsak Osottanakorn, the head of the rescue operation, said the boys had khao pad grapao, a Thai dish of meat fried with chili and basil and served over rice, in the morning as per their wish.

The first four boys, from the group of 13, including the coach, were rescued on Sunday.

The rescue of the first four boys - whose soccer team is known as the Wild Boars - brought cheers and optimism on Sunday, bolstering hopes that more of the boys can survive a complicated and hours-long process that includes the use of multiple divers and a system of air tanks stashed along the escape route.

The eight Thai boys rescued from the caves over the weekend and Monday were quickly taken to the hospital and put in isolation rooms as medical teams evaluate the strain on their bodies from nearly two weeks underground.

The Thai operation to rescue the remaining boys and their football coach stuck in a flooded cave in northern Thailand has halted for another day.

The rescue efforts resumed Monday following a 10-hour pause that was called last night to replenish scuba tanks with oxygen. They were accompanied by two professional divers each throughout.

The four boys pulled from the cave Sunday in an urgent and unsafe operation that involved them diving through the cave's tight and twisting passages were in good health.

Rescuers are moving ahead quickly because they are afraid monsoon rains will completely flood the caves. On Sunday, officials waited until several hours after the rescued boys had been transported to hospitals to announce their rescue.

There had been efforts to pump the water out but those were set back every time it rained. Last week, a former Thai navy diver died while preparing for the operation.

Monsoon rains have started falling again, causing water levels inside the cave to rise, squeezing the boys in an ever shrinking space inside the cave, and causing oxygen levels to drop.
