Four more boys were rescued on Monday and have been admitted to the hospital according to an unidentified local official.
A total of eight of the 12 boys have been rescued over the last two days. A total of twelve players of the Wild Boars soccer team and their coach were trapped in the flooded cave complex on June 23.
“2 days, 8 Boars,” said a message on the Thai Navy SEALS Facebook page.
The four boys who were rescued on Sunday were in stable condition, according to Interior Minister Anupong Paochinda. Mongkol Boonpiam. One of the boys was considered to have been the weakest of those trapped.
Sunday’s rescue required 90 divers, more than half of them foreign, to navigate flooded and pitch-black terrain, some of it menaced by strong currents. Most of the trapped boys do not know how to swim.
Two divers were assigned to each boy.
