Four boys and their football coach are waiting to make the long and arduous journey out of the cave complex.

Narongsak Osottanakorn, head of the rescue operation, said a team of divers went back into the cave Monday morning, local time. "But we will have a psychiatrist evaluate them". As with the previous rescue efforts, 19 divers have gone into the cave, with two divers escorting each of the boys out of the cave with tethers.

The boys, who were guided through the cave's twisting passages on Sunday, were said to be happy and undergoing medical checks.

Elite British divers have been assisting in the risky rescue operation, highlighted by the death of a Thai navy diver last week. "We should learn from this experience to prevent it from happening again".

"The machine has already been delivered to Thailand and ready to use in the rescue operation in a partially flooded cave Khao Luang", - he wrote.

"The rescue has been vast", said volunteer helper Somjit Saenset, 56. "I want to send my moral support for all involved" in the rest of the mission.

Twelve members of the Wild Boar youth football team were underground from 23 June after going for a picnic with their coach after practice. Divers tried to train them with basic diving skills as a part of mission to extract them from the flooded cave after they were found on July 2.

The remaining five members of the Thai soccer team will be rescued today, officials have confirmed. They successfully extracted the second group of four a full two hours faster than the first, officials said. Relatives were able to see them through a glass partition, the governor said.

The Thailand FA responded to Infantino, thanking him for his offer but saying the condition of the boys must be taken into consideration before any decision is made.

The eight boys that have been rescued so far are weak but in good health, Kimberlee says.

Concerns abounded that they could have resorted to contaminated water or been exposed to bird or bat droppings common in the cave.

Somboon Sompiangjai, 38, the father of one of the trapped boys, said parents were told by rescuers ahead of Sunday's operation the "strongest children" would be brought out first.

"We have not been told which child has been brought out".

Doctors were being cautious because of the infection risk and were isolating the boys in the hospital.

That led an upbeat Narongsak to promise more "good news" on Monday afternoon that materialised a few hours later with the emergence of the other four.

Weather is a real danger for rescuers there since this is the heart of Thailand's rainy season, which runs from May through October, according to the Rough Guide to Weather.
