Doctors attending to the eight boys who have been rescued from the cave in two groups of four on Sunday and Monday say they are generally in good health - an incredible result for the boys who have spent nine days incommunicado, without food, until they were found, and then waited days more before embarking on an hours-long dive that even the most skilled cave divers have described as among the most unsafe they have attempted.

The "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach got trapped on June 23 when they set out to explore the vast cave complex after soccer practice, when a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels.
Each boy is being accompanied by two divers through the dark and complex cave system.
The search and rescue operation has riveted people both in Thailand and internationally, with journalists from across the globe travelling to this town along the border with Myanmar to report on the ordeal. A medic and three Thai Navy SEALs who have stayed with the boys on a small, dry shelf deep in the flooded cave will also come out, he said.
Thai authorities said the parents of the four rescued boys are still being kept from physical contact with them due to fear of infections.
Narongsak said favorable factors for a successful rescue, including the fact that water levels in the cave remain stable even though rain had fallen.
It is understood the same divers who rescued the first four boys have been given the job of getting the remaining team members out.
Narongsak said Monday's rescues involving 18 divers and a support team of 100 had taken nine hours, two fewer than the rescues on Sunday.
He said the boys rescued Sunday were strong and safe but needed to undergo medical checks.

The sixth and seventh were loaded onto ambulances at 7:11pm.
