Manchester United invites rescued Thai team to match

Onlookers wave as an ambulance carrying rescued schoolboys leaves a military airport in Chiang Rai Thailand

The Thai Navy SEALs said they still were waiting on four SEAL personnel to come out of the cave after they stayed with the boys on a dry shelf inside the flooded cave. All the rescued are expected to be taken to the hospital soon.

Members of the "Wild Boars" soccer team, who range in age from 12 to 16, and their coach became trapped after a rainy season downpour turned a cave adventure in the northern province of Chiang Rai into a nightmare, flooding the tunnels and making it impossible to leave.

Musk and his team of engineers at SpaceX and The Boring Co. designed and built a mini-submarine to help rescue a soccer team of 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach.

The incredible rescue has been deemed a miracle by many, but the operation wasn't without tragedy.

The Thai navy SEALs - along with the worldwide team of divers who traveled to Mae Sai, the town nearest the cavern, to help - have quickly become immortalized as modern-day superheroes in various pieces of artwork.

The head of the operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said earlier the final operation would be "more challenging" because one more survivor would be brought out, along with three Navy SEALs who have been accompanying them.


However, when all 13 footballers were found alive at a dry spot about five kilometres from the mouth of the cave on July 2, a desperate race to extricate them before monsoon rains deluged the cave began.

It's unclear whether Thai officials will opt to use Musk's submarine to rescue the four remaining boys and their soccer coach. They were immediately sent for a medical examination, but there has been no news about their condition.

Boys number six and seven were brought out a little over an hour later, with boy number eight spotted being taken out at about 7.40pm local time. The announcement appeared on the Thai Navy SEALS Facebook page on Tuesday, July 10. Nevertheless, Musk said he still sees a future for his spontaneous invention.

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.

As of press time, the first eight boys to emerge from the cave were in relatively good health but still in hospital. He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests. About 100 people were involved with the rescue efforts.
