More Boys Rescued From Thailand Cave

Rescuers have resumed a rescue operation for a third day to free four remaining boys and their soccer coach trapped in a cave in northern Thailand. Four boys and the coach are still deep inside, and authorities have indicated they're continuing with their so-far successful effort to bring the boys out guided by experienced divers.

As an worldwide coalition of divers continued to rescue a Thai soccer team and their coach from a cave Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was trying to help in his own inimitable way.

The 12 boys - ages 11 to 16 - entered the massive cave complex on the frontier of Thailand and Myanmar with their 25-year-old coach on June 23.

Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn says the rescue mission began at 10.08am and involves 19 divers.

The final push to bring home four boys and their soccer coach by a crew of global and Thai divers began in earnest on Tuesday.

This final mission aims to rescue the last remaining 4 members of the team, as well as their coach.

Narongsak Osottanakorn told a news conference the latest rescue operation began at about 10:08 am local time.

The Space-X and Tesla founder arrived in Thailand with a miniature "kid sized" submarine Monday. ABC News identified the Wild Boar soccer team players Mongkol Boonbiam, Songpong Jaiwong, Ponchai Kumluang, Pipat Pothi, Duangpetch Promthep, Adul Samon, Panumat Sangdee, Peerapat Sompiangjai, Prajak Sutham, Nuttawut Takamsong, Chanin Wiboonrungrueng and Eakkarat Wongsukchan.

Harris, known to friends as "Harry", was part of the expert team who successfully saved all 13 members of the soccer team, who were trapped inside the cave for 17 days after heavy rain caused the cave system to flood.

The operation on Monday went more smoothly than on Sunday and took two hours less as the practice became more refined, he said. However, senior health official Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk said all of them are "healthy and smiling".

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around their beds.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jesada said. "Everyone is in high spirits and is happy to get out. We can see that everything is ok as they're eating well", he said. Doctors, though, said they'll have to remain in the hospital for treatment for at least a week, insisting they can watch the big game on TV. Doctors were being cautious because of the infection risk and were isolating the boys in the hospital.

Writing in elegant Thai script, the boys urged their parents not to worry, adding that they hoped they wouldn't get too much homework after being rescued and couldn't wait to eat their favorite foods again.
