Four of the 12 schoolboys trapped inside a cave in Thailand had their first breath of fresh air in two weeks after they were rescued in a dramatic operation.
USA special operations teams and divers have been part of the Thai-led worldwide rescue effort that led to four boys being pulled to safety from a cave Sunday after being trapped for 16 days.
Meanwhile, as CNN reported on Sunday, the rescue effort in Thailand has assembled divers and Navy Seal personnel from various countries including the United States and Thailand itself, which saw one elite diver die on Friday during the operation to save the boys.
Photo taken on July 8, 2018 shows that the first two boys are transfered to the field hospital after being brought out near the cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand. "The war ends when we win all three battles - the battles to search, rescue and send them home".
The rescue will resume after authorities assess conditions in the cave, get a briefing on the initial rescues and replenish the oxygen tanks, Chiang Rai provincial Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said at a press conference.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, went missing with their 25-year-old coach after soccer practice on June 23, setting out on an adventure to explore the cave complex near the border with Myanmar and celebrate a boy's birthday.
But the head of the mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, yesterday suggested they would try in the coming days, even though the boys were weak and had no previous diving experience.
Rescue and medical teams have been preparing for three days and are ready to treat those who emerge from the cave.
Now, while no further rescue efforts can be carried out on Sunday, there has been a breakthrough as the boys were retrieved.

Thai Navy SEALs and global divers worked together to rescue four boys trapped in the Thai caves on Sunday.
A former Navy SEAL and combat swimmer said that the risky and harrowing rescue of a soccer team trapped in a flooded Thailand cave was comparable to climbing the tallest mountain in the world.
Cave divers in Thailand are poised to restart the high-risk operation to extract the remaining eight boys and their football coach from a vast flooded cave system. Monsoon flooding cut off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days, CBS News reported. The entire operation to rescue all 13 could last two to four days, depending on weather and water conditions, said army Maj.
The water in the cave was muddy and unclear, with one diver comparing it to a cafe latte.
One early potential plan was to leave them there for months until the monsoon season ended and the floods subsided completely, but that idea was scrapped over concerns about falling oxygen levels and waters rising too high. "You don't need to be anxious about me". "I miss everyone. Grandpa, Uncle, Mom, Dad and siblings, I love you all". I'm happy being here inside, the navy SEALS have taken good care.
