First Boys Rescued From Thailand Cave After Being Trapped For 2 Weeks

Four young soccer players have been freed so far. Officials say rescue efforts for the rest of the group will resume in 10 to 20 hours.
Four young soccer players have been rescued from the Tham Luang Cave in Thailand after weeks of uncertainty, ominous weather conditions and a concerted effort from divers and rescuers from all over the world working to save the trapped soccer team. 
The first two boys were freed from the cave before 6 p.m. local time on Sunday, said Narongsak Osatanakorn, the former Chiang Rai governor who has been heading rescue efforts, at a press conference. Two additional boys were later rescued. 
All four were promptly whisked to the hospital, said Osatanakorn, The Guardian reported. Several ambulances and a helicopter were seen leaving the cave site on Sunday evening. Locals reportedly cheered and whooped as the helicopter flew by.
Osatanakorn said the boys’ health was “perfect” and said the operation had been “more successful than I expected.”
“Everyone’s happy,” he said.
Nine people remain trapped inside the cave ― 8 boys and their 25-year-old coach. Osatanakorn said the rescue mission had been put on hold for the time being because “we’ve used all the oxygen” and supplies needed to be replenished.
He estimated that the rescue operation would resume in “10 to 20 hours.” The Guardian said the mission was expected to recommence Monday at 8 a.m. local time.
