The four remaining boys and their coach, Ekaphol Chantawong, are spending night 17 inside the cave but it is still unclear if they will be freed by the end of Tuesday. They were accompanied by professional divers throughout.

After the four boys were removed from the cave, heavy rain started falling. The search and rescue operation has involved dozens of worldwide experts and rescuers, including a USA military team.

Soldiers arrive outside the Tham Luang cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 8, 2018.

- Sunday, June 24 - Park officials and police find handprints and footprints believed to belong to the boys. A few hours later, Michael Safi, a Guardian reporter, confirmed that the sixth boy had been rescued.

Crews are rushing to rescue the boys before the cave complex is inundated once again by seasonal rains.

The rescuers who found the kids brought food, and the kids were able to get their strength up before they began diving and trekking out of the labyrinthine cave network over the weekend.

The first kilometer is the hardest, CNN explains, as that's where the children have to navigate a narrow flooded channel.

The rescued boys were airlifted to the Chiagrai Prachanukroh Hospital in Chiang Rai after initial treatment at a field hospital near the caves, and the four boys rescued Sunday were said to be "in good condition".

The plan laid out has been set to save four at time, leaving in doubt whether rescuing the remaining boys and their coach on the same mission will be possible. Thirteen foreign divers and five members of Thailand's navy SEAL unit are taking part in the rescue operation.

Sounding tearful and shaken at times, she said she did it because "some people liked me". The sentencing was later suspended.

One volunteer, former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Gunan, died Friday while placing spare air tanks along the escape route. The rescued boys are in quarantine, BBC News reports.

Adesman said that PTSD is an issue for protracted trauma, and he's optimistic the worst is behind the boys trapped in the cave.

Still, the four were undergoing medical checks in a hospital in the provincial capital and were not yet allowed close contact with relatives due to fear of infections.

The story about 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach trapped in a flooded cave has captured the world's attention, as rescuers attempt to prise all 13 people out of the subterranean tunnels with inclement weather on its way.

"So even in the middle of the summer, if 12 boys walked into a cave like that (in Minnesota) the hypothermia would get them pretty quick". He said rescuers told the parents that the "strongest children" would be brought out first.

"We have not been told which child has been brought out. We can't visit our boys in hospital because they need to be monitored for 48 hours", Somboon told Reuters.

"We have caves here in the Midwest that are equally unsafe, I would have to say, to the ones that are found in Thailand".

"But I expect people will follow up with the team and the coach over a period of months to see how they're doing and to offer assistance early, and in ways that are culturally acceptable". "Thailand is so lovely", he wrote. "Very fearless and talented people!"
