Thai cave rescue sees four more boys freed

Story of Thai Footbal Team Coach Goes Viral & Touches The Hearts of Millions- WORLD OF BUZZ 7

When it was all over, everyone simply wanted to see the boys.

Royal Thai Navy Seals confirmed the rescue operation was complete on Tuesday afternoon (UK time) after three days of heroic efforts by divers, with all of those trapped carried out alive. Last week, Musk sent engineers from two of his companies, SpaceX and Boring Co., to assist Thai officials in the rescue effort, which comprises a large team of worldwide diving, engineering and medical experts, among other professionals.

Though four boys and their coach are still to be saved, American film crews have reportedly traveled to the rescue site in Chiang Rai to begin work on a movie telling the tale of the Wild Boars team, Australian website news.com.au reported. Momentary celebrations quickly gave way to rising anxiety as it became clear that the rescue would necessarily be highly risky. The water level has reached the lowest it has been in ten days.

A total of eight boys have now been brought out of the cave complex. Two divers helped each one make his way through dark, very narrow passages, some of which are filled with dirty water. The first rescue mission of the soccer team commenced on Sunday, July 8. "All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Thai SEALs wrote in a Facebook post shared by almost 80,000 people on Tuesday.

One volunteer, former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Gunan, died last Friday while placing air tanks along the escape path. "They are getting forced to do something that no kid has ever done before", Ivan Karadzic, a diver involved with the rescue mission told BBC.

Four divers who stayed with the group were still to emerge.

.

"If the rain god helps us, then we may be able to work fast", the head of the rescue mission, Narongsak told reporters.

The Guardian reported on Tuesday afternoon local time that a ninth and 10th boy had been pulled from the cave.

Hours after the rescue was confirmed, President Trump tweeted his congratulations, adding, "Such a attractive moment - all freed, great job!"

"I have one [of] the world's best engineering teams, who normally design spaceships and spacesuits, working on this thing 24 hours a day", Musk wrote in an email to Dick Stanton, one of the leaders of the search and rescue effort in Thailand, on July 8.

Smith, who also runs KAOS Entertainment in Bangkok, said "it's apolitical, it has no agenda".

In a gesture of kindness, English soccer giants Manchester United have invited the Thai soccer team to Old Trafford to watch them play in its upcoming season.
