All 12 members of a youth football team, along with their 25-year-old coach, have now been rescued from the Tham Luang cave in Thailand's Chiang Rai Province.

The four boys who were recovered on Sunday are now eating normal food, Jedsada said.

Eight of the boys were brought out on stretchers over the first two days - four on Sunday and four on Monday.

The Thai rescue effort has been assisted by experts from around the world, and the death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver who ran out of oxygen in the cave on Friday underscored the dangers of the mission.

The emergence of the second batch of four on Monday evening was greeted with a simple "Hooyah" by the Thai Seals team on their Facebook page, an exclamation that lit up Thai social media.

Narongsak would not identify the rescued boys. They also anxious about dwindling oxygen levels in the cave. Rescue operations have halted for the night and will restart on Tuesday.

In the past two days, eight boys were rescued and are now in a hospital isolation ward while they are tested for any possible infections.

"Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out", Jesada added.

Today's fantastic news ends a 17-day ordeal after the boys and their coach were trapped inside the cave on June 23.

"We expect that everybody will be out today, the children and coach and everybody will be out today", Osatanakorn told reporters.

Onlookers in Chiang Rai, Thailand, watch and cheer as ambulances transport some of the rescued schoolboys from a cave where they were trapped for two weeks.

A total of eight of the 12 boys have now been brought out of the treacherous cave system by divers, including four who were brought out on Sunday, when the rescue operation began. Some had infections but otherwise all of them were in good health. What happens when the players are out of the cave " The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jesada said.

Four other youngsters and their soccer coach are still inside. Heavy rain has struck the region intermittently over the last three days and further downpours could set back draining efforts at the cave.

Harris' colleagues and fellow rescuers lauded his commitment to the mission and how vital his expertise was in bringing the boys out to safety. They were also able to talk on the phone.

Musk said it was light enough to be carried by two divers, robust, and small enough to get through narrow gaps.

If not, he says he hopes the device could be helpful in a future situation.

Musk posted videos and photos of divers testing out the submarine in a Los Angeles pool.
