  • Divers look to complete rescue of youth soccer players trapped in flooded Thailand cave

Scott, who's married to a Thai woman and spends three months a year in Thailand, said they are not pressing people over the interviews.

The "Wild Boars" football players and their coach became trapped in the cave system after heavy rain in northern Thailand on June 23, and the mission to bring them back to the surface has gripped the world's attention.

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

The incredible rescue has been deemed a miracle by many, but the operation wasn't without tragedy.

Experts have previously said Musk's plans may not be of much use due to huge numbers of rescuers already working on the mission and their success in so far bringing eight out of the 12 boys to safety.

Then another four of the youngsters were successfully brought out of the cave, with the first rescue carried out shortly before 5pm local time, a few hours after the mission entered its second day. The world feared the worst as the search operation stretched over nine days, before the missing team was finally discovered stranded in a flooded cave some 2.5 miles from the complex's entrance.

"But of course, they were conscious", he said. A family member told CNN Monday that they hadn't been told which boys had been pulled out, and who is still trapped in the cave.

He shared images and video as four members of the soccer team, as well as their coach, were still trapped inside. Helicopters taking the boys to a hospital roared overhead. The eight boys brought out on Sunday and Monday are in good health overall, though two are suffering from pneumonia, according to hospital staff cited by AP. A former Thai navy SEAL died Friday while replenishing oxygen canisters laid at regular intervals along the route out of the sprawling cave.

Onlookers in front of Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital watch and cheer as ambulances transport the last rescued schoolboys and their coach to the hospital from a helipad nearby, on July 10, 2018, in Chiang Rai, Thailand. A team of Thai and global divers extracted eight of the boys Sunday and Monday using a complex system that involved laying out oxygen canisters at regular intervals to guide them out of the flooded cave.

The US tech billionaire flew to Thailand to present the authorities with his invention, which Musk said was "made from rocket parts". Musk's invention would have involved less physical effort from the kids being rescued.
