The boys will miss the FIFA World cup as it could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital.

Torrential rain struck the cave site on Monday evening and the downpour continued through Tuesday morning, but authorities said preparations for the final rescue mission were unaffected. On Friday, a former Thai Navy diver who had volunteered to help with the rescue, Saman Gunan, lost consciousness and died on an oxygen supply mission.

A witness told Reuters they saw three people being carried out of the Tham Luang cave on stretchers seperately - this third day of the rescue operation.

Four were extracted from the cave on the first day of the rescue operation, while another four were brought out on Monday.

Officials were not immediately available to comment on who had been brought out, and it was not clear what condition they were in. "Now I'm just very happy for the kids and their families and everyone involved in the rescue".

Four boys and their 25-year-old football coach remain deep in the cave, an ordeal that has lasted more than two weeks after they trapped inside by floods.

"We expect that everybody will be out today, the children and coach and everybody will be out today", Osatanakorn told reporters.

It is believed that today's operation will take longer than the previous ones, but they are optimistic that they will be able to bring the five members of the team out.

They have no fever or serious ailments, said public health permanent secretary Dr Jesada Chokedamrongsuk at a press conference on Tuesday (July 10).

But the efforts to rescue the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - have proved a monumental challenge.

He said two of them possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling". ABC News identified the Wild Boar soccer team players Mongkol Boonbiam, Songpong Jaiwong, Ponchai Kumluang, Pipat Pothi, Duangpetch Promthep, Adul Samon, Panumat Sangdee, Peerapat Sompiangjai, Prajak Sutham, Nuttawut Takamsong, Chanin Wiboonrungrueng and Eakkarat Wongsukchan.

The insanely hazardous Thai cave rescue has started well
The entire operation to rescue all 13 could last two to four days, depending on weather and water conditions, said army Maj. Monsoon flooding cut off their escape and prevented rescuers from finding them for nearly 10 days, CBS News reported.

The four boys who were recovered on Sunday are now eating normal food, Jedsada said.

Four boys were rescued from the underground caves on Sunday, bringing the total number of recovered children to eight.

The parents of first four boys can see them through a glass wall, but no physical contact is allowed.

Rescued schoolboys are moved from a military helicopter to an awaiting ambulance at a military airport in Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 9, 2018.

Information on the rescue operation, the health of those rescued - and their identities - has been tightly guarded by Thai authorities, but their names were being widely used in Thai media reports.

American billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted Monday that he had visited the cave and left behind a mini-sub rescue vehicle "in case it may be useful in the future". "It is made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after kids" soccer team.
