Congratulations and gratitude came in from across the world after it was reported that all 12 boys and their 25-year-old football coach were safe after being rescued from the Tham Luang cave complex, where they had gotten trapped inside on June 23.

The story has transfixed the Netherlands - as well as the rest of the world - after the 12 boys and their coach were lost inside the Tham Luang park cave complex more than two weeks ago.

Tech inventor Elon Musk has developed a "tiny, kid-size submarine" that could help rescue the four boys and their soccer coach who remain trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand.

The three Royal Thai Navy SEAL divers and medics who stayed in the cave with the boys and coach since they were located on July 2.

So far eight boys aged between 12 and 16 have been led out of the cave system by a team of expert divers over two days.

In this photo taken from video released by Thailand government, family members watch the rescued boys through a window at the Chiang Rai hospital in northern Thailand, Wednesday, July 11, 2018.

19 divers are said to be involved in the operation, which began at just after 10:00am local time.

"They are all in good spirits and happy to be out", Jedsada Chokdamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the public health ministry, told reporters.


The chief national correspondent for abc has revealed that shortly after the rescue of the last four players, the main pump failed, according to military sources.

This now brings the total number of rescued boys to eight.

He said they would need to keep at least two metres away for their boys for at least 48 hours, until "we are sure there is no infection, then they can visit them normally".

"The kids are footballers, are strong and have high immunity", Jesada said when asked why they survived so long. Lit by several beams of white light, the divers in wet suits and helmets are seen submerging themselves in the water and grabbing on to a metal dive line used to guide them through the winding channels of the six-mile cave.

"The bravery and heroism I've witnessed is incredibly inspiring, so, yes, this will be a movie for us", Scott said.

Dr Harris was supposed to be on holiday at the time of the rescue, but cancelled it to come to the aid of the Wild Boars football team.

Rescuers brought out the last five on stretchers, one by one over the course of Tuesday, and they were taken by helicopter to hospital.

It is believed that the second lot of boys are in better health than the first four who were brought out first because they were deemed the "weakest".
