Rains Lash Mae Sai as Final Push to Extract Remaining 5 Begins

The dish's name translates as

Dr. Richard Harris, an Australian anesthetist who is also well-known as an expert cave diver, has been helping to treat the boys and ensure their safe removal.

A Reuters witness saw three people being carried out of the Tham Luang cave on stretchers separately on Tuesday, the third day of the rescue operation.

The boys have also needed to wear protective sunglasses while their eyes adjust to light after spending two weeks in darkness. Now, two boys along with their football coach remain in the caves.

On Monday, family members told CNN officials hadn't revealed which children had been rescued and who was still inside the cave Families had vowed to wait at the cave entrance until all of the boys, and their coach, were taken out.

Filmmakers are facing backlash after scoping out the Thai cave site in hopes of making a film based on the 12 school boys and their soccer coach who were trapped.

He said Tuesday's rescue attempt began just after 10 in the morning, local time, and involved 19 divers.

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what", the Seals posted.

Earlier, the eight boys rescued after being trapped for more than two weeks were described as generally healthy.

The young soccer players rescued from a partially flooded cave Tuesday were given anti-anxiety pills to help them safely complete their journey, officials said.

Thai Cave Rescue: Sixth Boy Leaves, Six Soccer Players and Coach Remain
But although the eight were rescued, there were concerns they may have contracted an illness while in the cave. Last Monday they were discovered huddled on a narrow rock shelf deep within the flooded cave system.

They are all likely to stay in hospital for seven days due to their weakened immune systems.

Dr Jesada said the first group taken out, on Sunday, were aged 14 to 16 and the second group, taken out on Monday, were aged 12 to 14.

People across Thailand cheered the rescue operation, including at the Mae Sai Prasitsart school where six of the trapped boys are students.

Heavy rains lashed the northern Thai region late Monday and a steady downpour has continued Tuesday.

If medical tests show no dangers, after another two days parents will be able to enter the isolation area dressed in sterilized clothing and staying 2 meters away from the boys, said Tosthep Bunthong, Chiang Rai Public Health chief.

Officials have not been commenting on the rescue mission as it has been taking place, so it was not clear who had been brought out on Tuesday or what condition they were in.

Elon Musk visited the flooded Thailand cave to offer a "kid-sized" submarine to help with the rescue - only to be told his technology wasn't "practical" to the mission.

On Sunday, Musk tweeted a series of videos showing a team of divers testing the pod in the swimming pool at Palisades Charter High School.
