A diver in front led the way, with a boy tethered to him and another diver following behind. Each operation has taken at least nine hours.

All 12 boys and their soccer coach have been rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand, the Thai navy SEALs said Tuesday, ending an 18-day ordeal that riveted people around the world. "It's just an incredible thing and we think it will inspire millions around the world", he said. "We achieved a mission impossible".

A Thai navy SEAL Facebook post confirming all 13 had been rescued on Tuesday had more than 200,000 likes and around 56,000 shares in the space of an hour, sparking comments such as: "You are ALL HEROES!" For days, divers strategized as teams of volunteers worked to drain water out of the cave.

The dramatic three-day mission kicked off Sunday after days spent preparing the cave - and the boys.

The mission was also a race against the weather.

Another four were rescued on Monday and the last four boys and the coach were brought out on Tuesday.

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys and some of their parents said they had not been told who had been brought out.

The world's media is now stationed 3km from the cave entrance.

According to the TV channel, the 12th kid and the youth football team's coach were brought out at about 17:40 local time (10:40 GMT).

A Royal Thai police ambulance evacuates a cave trapped boy to hospital after he was rescued from the Tham Luang cave, Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in Chiang Rai province, Thailand, 10 July 2018.

The three Navy seals and a doctor who accompanied the boys in the cave complex are still inside.

The rescue process started at 10am local time on Sunday and involved 13 worldwide divers and five Thai navy seals, who were referred to as "an all-star team" by NarongsakOsatanakorn, who is the Governor of Chiang Rai province and head of the joint command centre coordinating the rescue.

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

He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests.

Rescuers need to hold the boys' oxygen tanks in front of them and swim pencil-like through submerged holes. The effort turned tragic on Friday, July 6, when former Navy SEAL Saman Kunan ran out of oxygen and died. "At this moment [there are] no worrisome conditions, everyone is safe", Thailand's Health Secretary, Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, told reporters per Reuters.

Two of the boys possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling", he said. They were all treated for rabies - in case there were bats in the cave - as well as tetanus, and they were given IV drips. But he added they can not yet have the spicy treats that many Thais like to eat. Another four emerged Monday.

Families of the first four have been able to see their children through a glass window, Chokedamrongsook said. After a long and risky rescue effort, the last members of the group were brought to safety today (July 10). Among them was Umporn Sriwichai, an aunt of assistant coach Ekapol Chanthawong.

"I'm very happy that children are all out", said one of the men employed by the Thai government to help with the rescue.
