Everything you need to know about the Thai youth soccer team rescue

Thailand Ministry of Public Health

"The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe", the SEAL unit said on its official Facebook page.

The youngsters and their coach got trapped on June 23 while exploring the cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai after soccer practice, when a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels.

Other images circulating on social media include portraits, pictures and cartoons of Saman Kunan, the former Thai navy SEAL who died while trying to deliver oxygen to the boys last Friday.

Eight of the 12 trapped boys were brought out of the cave by divers in the past two days.

Loosely translated, it read: "Full face masks; two divers accompanying one boy; guided by a rope". A diver in front led the way, with a boy tethered to him and another diver following behind.

A few days of relatively clear weather has allowed them to pump enough water out of the cave to allow the boys to walk through some sections. For days, divers strategized as teams of volunteers worked to drain water out of the cave. Once exclusive rights to the story are secured, the company hopes to work with a screenwriter to bring the tale to life.

But doctors have played down fears of immediate physical and mental damage saying the boys were "in good spirits" while some asked for chocolate.

In 2010, Man United hosted a group of miners from Chile who spent nearly 10 weeks underground before being rescued.

"Our operation was more successful than we expected", Narongsak said at a press briefing.

"The equipment they brought to help us is not practical with our mission", Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osotthanakorn, the head of the rescue efforts, said of the billionaire's technology, according to BBC.

The final boy and the team's coach were brought out of the cave at 6:50 p.m. local time on Tuesday. "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. Musk had proposed possible technological solutions for extracting the boys while they were trapped and travelled to Thailand this week.

Today, the four remaining boys were confirmed to have been rescued and were taken to hospital after Reuters reported that those in charge of the rescue mission were "hopeful" all 12 boys plus the coach would be out today. The Chaing Rai regional governor said he is unsure if they will be able to rescue the five remaining people in the cave in one mission. Thai Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-ocha visited the hospital Monday, and spoke to relatives and hospital workers.
