Elon Musk brings mini-sub to cave

Thailand Ministry of Public Health

The boys rescued so far are in good overall health despite spending two weeks in the dank cave system, Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the ministry of public health, told a news conference in Chiang Rai.

A Thai well wisher puts a poster to pray for boys and their football coach. The boys and their coach have to spend time in isolation to protect against the spread of any possible infections they may have contracted while in the cave.

Several hours later, a medic and three SEAL divers who had stayed for days with the boys in their tiny refuge in the cave also came out. Officials are constantly pumping water out of the caves, and Sunday gave the rescue crews the best chance of recovering more survivors after days of decent weather and pumping reduced flood levels.

Eight members of the Thai youth soccer team have been successfully rescued from the flooded cave in northern Thailand.

Announcing the successful completion of its nail-biting rescue, the Thai navy SEAL unit said on its official Facebook page: "The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe".

A huge rescue operation is now entering its third day.

The Thai navy SEALs - along with the worldwide team of divers who traveled to Mae Sai, the town nearest the cavern, to help - have quickly become immortalized as modern-day superheroes in various pieces of artwork.

The boys remain in quarantine but some of their parents have been able to see their children through the glass.

The rescuers have been learning from experience and were two hours faster in bringing the second batch of survivors out on Monday.

Along with the rescue workers, the expected contingent of media from around the world have been on scene, including CBS News' Ben Tracy, ABC News' James Longman, NBC News' Janis Mackey Frayer and Bill Neely, correspondents from CNN, and extensive coverage on MSNBC and Fox News. Musk appeared to deliver the submarine to the rescuers in Thailand, tweeting that he would leave it "here in case it may be useful in the future", adding, "Thailand is so lovely". He posted photos of the cave interior and a video showing people working their way through chest-high water.

Over the weekend, Musk tweeted footage of his team testing the mini-submarine in a pool at a Los Angeles high school.

Authorities did not reveal the identity of the boys as they were brought out. Thai and foreign divers safely led the other eight youngsters out of the cave earlier in the week.
