Elon Musk Confirms That His"Mini-Sub Is Headed to Thailand to Aid Rescue

Thailand's Navy SEALs said the last four boys and the coach were rescued Tuesday.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces said that he was glad to hear that the rescue operations were successful.

TRANQUILLIZERS AND QUARANTINE Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, who visited the cave on Monday, said the boys had been given tranquillizers to stop them getting stressed on the way out of the cave, but he dismissed any suggestion they had been "sedated".

The 12 boys and their coach were trapped by flooding in the cave more than two weeks ago.

This means that a total of eleven boys are now out of the caves, and on their way for hospital observation via helicopter.

As a youth soccer team is gradually evacuated from a flooded cave complex in northern Thailand, Hollywood producers are already eyeing a new box office smash. A former Thai navy SEAL died Friday while replenishing oxygen canisters laid at regular intervals along the route out of the sprawling cave. The departure of the three ambulances suggests others also have been rescued, but there was no immediate official confirmation. "Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out".

All 12 boys and their coach have been rescued from a cave complex in Thailand, where they had been trapped since June 23.

The distance from where the crew is trapped to the main entrance is about a half a mile, and the boys had to travel most of that distance underwater to reach freedom.

19 divers are said to be involved in the operation, which began at just after 10:00am local time. He said a medic and three SEALS in the cave, who've been looking after those trapped, will also come out.

It said: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what". Having completed this section, the boys are then handed over to separate, specialist rescue teams, who help assist them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they can wade through.

The boys rescued so far are in good overall health despite spending two weeks in the dank cave system, Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the ministry of public health, told a news conference in Chiang Rai.

The hazardous bid to rescue the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - started unexpectedly on Sunday when the rescue team said conditions were flawless for the evacuation.

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

"The kids are footballers and have high immune systems", Chokedamrongsuk said per USA Today.

The second group of 4 that were pulled out afterwards are aged between 12 and 14.

The first four boys who were rescued on Sunday have been allowed to see their families through a glass window as doctors continue to conduct thorough health checks and monitor the boys for any contagious diseases.

But while divers risk their lives to get the team out, two Hollywood producers are beginning a project telling the boys's story.

For more than a week, officials have been pumping millions of gallons of water out of the cave, trying to combat heavy rains on Sunday and Monday. The search operation quickly turned into a rescue mission involving 90 divers - 50 foreign and 40 Thai - though some warned it could take months.

The remaining four boys and the 25-year-old head coach were rescued around Tuesday afternoon local time and were taken to a local hospital.

The tech entrepreneur tweeted Tuesday morning he'd "Just returned from Cave 3", referring to the rescuers' command center inside the sprawling cave. ABC News has 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.
