He added that the rescue operation took nine hours, two hours quicker than the mission on Sunday that saw the first four boys rescued from the cave complex.

"They may show extremes in behaviors. they (may) sleep too much or have difficulty sleeping", says Aten, who is not involved in the boys' treatment.

Following the successful evacuation on Sunday, rescue personnel assessed their performance and adjusted the plan for Monday, resulting in "a smooth, coordinated operation", deputy commander of the Third Army Maj Gen Chalongchai Chaiyakham told reporters.

The eight freed boys of the Thai soccer team may have seen daylight for the first time in weeks, but they still can not come face-to-face with their loved ones.

Authorities have refused to confirm names reported in local media, but in the small town of Mae Sai where the cave is located, it's all anybody is talking about.

"All 12 wild boars and the coach have left the cave. all safe". Each boy is being accompanied by two divers and it takes hours to negotiate the flooded tunnels through the dark, murky water.

While swimming, each boy is helped by two divers as they follow a rope called a dive line, which helps lead the group out of the cave. Officials feared that an incoming storm could send water flooding back into the cave and make an escape even more hard for the boys, ages 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach.

The other semifinal will be played on Wednesday between the winners of England-Sweden and Croatia-Russia. Four years ago at home they were humiliated with a 7-1 defeat in the semi-final to Germany.

Workers have been labouring around the clock to pump water out of the cave, and authorities said Monday that heavy downpours overnight did not raise water levels inside.

"The four children are well at Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital". Kanet said the boys will be treated as disaster victims and given psychological evaluations and other assistance after their ordeal.

"Imagine marathon runners. It's like when they reach the finish line exhausted", said the source. They have not been reunited with their families yet due to infection concerns.

A total of eight of the 12 boys have now been brought out of the treacherous cave system by divers, including four who were brought out on Sunday, when the rescue operation began. That time, however, was later than the ongoing rescue mission was expected to last. He said that process can take several hours.

Narongsak said Sunday that the decision to try and rescue the boys and their coach on was made because conditions inside the cave were the best they could hope for and that water levels were now so low after days of good weather and constant draining that long stretches of the passage were now walk-able. The boys were transferred by helicopter and ambulance to a hospital where they are being treated, but officials did not disclose details of their condition. Onlookers were seen watching and cheering as they drove by.

Elon Musk has offered his assistance and has floated plans to save the soccer team stranded in a Thai cave network.

Fox News broke in to report Monday morning that the fifth boy has been rescued from the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand, where a group has been trapped for more than two weeks. The death Friday of a former Thai navy SEAL underscored the risks.
