Four were rescued Sunday and another four were rescued on Monday. Another two more boys left the cave complex a short time later followed by the fourth boy. Now, having used all the oxygen supplies, they'll need between 10 and 20 hours to resupply before resuming the rescue mission.

Delight as the first of the trapped Thai boys freed from cave after more than two weeks deep underground.

Rescuers found them huddled on top of a dry rock about 2.5 miles from the cave's entrance after nine days of searching.

Authorities have been tightlipped about the progress of Monday's operation.

How long will the rescue operation take?

Another five still await rescue, including the team's 25-year-old coach.

In a letter of his own, coach Ekapol Chanthawong apologised to the boys' parents for the ordeal.

The soccer team seen in the cave last week, before anyone was rescued. Musk expects his submarine to arrive in the middle of that window - about 12 hours into the second phase of the operation.

Four more boys and their coach remain trapped inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex.

Eight boys have been removed from the cave by a team of Thai and worldwide divers, but four others and the 25-year-old coach remain inside the cave, where they have been trapped for more than two weeks, according to The Washington Post's Shibani Mahtani.

The rescue operation is estimated to take 10 hours and end by 9 p.m. local time.

"The operation went much better than expected", said Chiang Rai acting governor Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is overseeing the mission.

A device by Elon Musk's SpaceX and The Boring Company, created to help rescue the remaining members of a soccer team trapped in a flooded cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand, is being tested in a swimming pool in Los Angeles, California, in this still image taken from an undated video obtained from social media.

The rescued boys are now being kept in sterilized isolation units at a nearby hospital, which prohibits physical contact, and their parents have not been told that they're safe.

Narongsak also said Monday that the condition of the five remaining people in the cave is "still good".

Eight boys are still inside the cave and along with the team coach. Secondly, after a delay of several hours required them to replace the oxygen tanks along the path, the teams of divers are going back in, to bring more of them to the surface. He said the boys rescued Sunday were strong and safe but needed to undergo medical checks. Crews will have to replenish air tanks along the route before rescuing the others.

Officials said Sunday morning that "today is D-Day".

Authorities have said the mission could take three or four days to complete. But in the past few days, they have avoided the heavy downpours that can flood the cave. "But there are caves where. explorers could go in and be trapped by rising water during like a heavy rain and trapped in an air pocket", Brick said. "Today they are really catching a break from the weather" of the rainy season, Tracy said.

Musk tweeted Saturday that SpaceX engineers were close to finishing a "kid-size submarine" that might just be able to help save the stranded boys.

Mini-sub to the rescue!

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the first four boys rescued. After Monday's rescues, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha visited the eight freed boys in the hospital where they had been taken by helicopter.

"The four children are fine".

Thai authorities said the four boys rescued from the cave are hungry but in good health.
