It was 10 days before the boys were miraculously located, and the remaining five have been in the cave for eight days.

Narongsak said the rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped, adding that the boys were being kept away from their parents due to fear of infection. "Everyone is in high spirits and is happy to get out".

The third phase of an operation to rescue four remaining boys and their football coach trapped inside a flooded Thai cave began on Tuesday morning (Jul 10), the head of the rescue mission said.

The boys brought out of the dark, winding cave on Monday are "safe and conscious", said Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is in charge of the rescue effort. A British diving team reached the 12 boys and their coach after nine days.

Authorities have said the boys are being held close to divers and wear oxygen masks to enable normal breathing.

After day two of the rescue operation, Thai navy officials said four more boys had been led to safety on Monday after the first four were rescued on Sunday. It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said.

Less than an hour after the helicopter took off, Thai public television aired live video of a medivac helicopter landing close to a hospital in the city of Chiang Rai, around 60 kilometers (37 miles) from the cave. This seems less likely now given the need for the boys to undergo further tests.
