Chiang Rai [Thailand], July 10 (ANI): Parents of all 12 boys and their coach who were rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai will get to see their sons through a glass at a hospital tonight.
"The remaining children along with the coach have left the cave safely. All parents will get to see their sons through a glass at the hospital by tonight," The Straits Times quoted Head of Thai cave rescue mission Narongsak Osotthanakorn while addressing media on Tuesday.
The Army medic and three other Navy Seals will be out of cave soon, the report said.
At least 19 divers, armed with oxygen tanks, entered into the Tham Luang cave near the Thai-Myanmar border at 10 a.m. local time on Tuesday.
"Today is 10 July 2018. It will be longer than previous ones. We will celebrate together finally. Hooyah!" The Thai Navy Seals posted on its Facebook wall.
The rescue operation, which commenced on Sunday, was carried out in three phases.
On Sunday, it took 11 hours to bring out four persons. On Monday, a second rescue operation by the same team of divers took only nine hours to bring out the next four, the report said.
All eight boys were rescued by divers using guide ropes and shared oxygen tanks.
Further three boys were rescued this morning. All were being treated in a Chiang Rai hospital in an isolation ward. The rescued boys are said to be in "high spirits."
Rest two including the coach were rescued later in the day.
The footballers were found by the British divers on late Monday night last week with footage showing them visibly weak and huddled on a mud mound deep inside the Tham Luang cave.
The team were strolling inside the cave. The weather gradually became worse due heavy rains and flooded the cave. Following worsened weather conditions the team got trapped for nine days before being found. Aged between 11 and 16 years, the boys were members of the Wild Boars soccer team. (ANI)
