All four were immediately taken to hospital of which one was airlifted to the hospital. There was no information about the exact health condition of these boys.

Talking to newsmen the Governor said that he was happy at the progress of the rescue operations and thanked the 50 odd members of the team for their support.

Thai officials said that the boys were wearing full masks. As the route is difficult and winding great expertise is required to bring out the trapped boys. The rescue is by no means over. It is hoped that the rains will not flood the cave once again so that the 9 remaining members of the team can be brought to safety quickly.
