Asked whether the remaining four "Wild Boars" team and their coach would come out at the same time in the next rescue effort, he said: "It depends on the plan".

Thailand has been riveted by the dramatic rescue mission to save the "Wild Boars" team after they first became trapped in Tham Luang more than two weeks ago by rising flood waters. In a drama that has received press coverage across the world, two British cave rescue specialists, workign with Thai military teams, found the 13 on a bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometers inside the complex on Monday, last week. Rescue officials were hopeful that the final four boys and their coach would be rescued Tuesday.

The ninth boy was carried from the cave on a stretcher shortly AFTER 11:00 SAST, Reuters and CNN reported. "We can see that everything is ok as they're eating well", he said.

The eight boys brought out by divers over the previous two days are in "high spirits" and have strong immune systems because they are soccer players, a senior health official said.

The diver, the first fatality of the rescue effort, was working in a volunteer capacity and died on a mission to place air canisters along the passage to where the boys are, necessary for divers to safely travel the five- to six-hour route. The 18-day ordeal ended after three rescue missions which involved the Thai navy SEALs and divers from around the world.

It has emerged the rescued boys are being held in confinement over fears they have cave disease, which is caused by breathing in fungus from bat and bird droppings.

Divers are forced out of the cave by rushing floodwaters as they try to reach an air pocket called "Pattaya Beach", where the boys are believed to have retreated.


In a day of high drama, the remaining five boys emerged in groups as evening approached, guided out by global divers and the Seals, who have played an integral role throughout an unprecedented rescue mission. "We can't visit our boys in hospital because they need to be monitored for 48 hours", Somboon told Reuters.

Each of the rescued boys has been guided through the dark winding cave by a pair of divers.

Chief of the rescue mission Narongsak Osottanakorn addressed reporters at the end of the 17-day mission, arriving at a media center to a round of applause.

He said a medic and three SEALS in the cave, who've been looking after those trapped, will also come out.

Indeed, news of the boys' plight reached all corners of the globe, with Federation Internationale de Football Association chief Gianni Infantino having pledged to invite the Wild Boar Academy to the World Cup final if they are deemed well enough to make the trip.

So the challenge for the children lies in keeping in keeping calm while remembering the minutiae of a new skill, Foisey said.
