Thai cave rescue: Here’s how Thai soccer team became trapped in cave

"They are getting forced to do something that no kid has ever done before".

"It's really a miracle", she said.

Federation Internationale de Football Association leaders will meet with Thai soccer officials in Moscow on the sidelines of the World Cup final on Sunday.

Thai media celebrate after evacuation in Chiang Rai as divers evacuated some of the 12 boys and their coach trapped at Tham Luang cave in the Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand, Tuesday, July 10, 2018. They entered the cave after a soccer practice and soon found themselves trapped when heavy rains flooded the complex.

Officials have not been commenting on the rescue mission as it has been taking place, so it was not clear who had been brought out on Tuesday or what condition they were in.

This final mission aims to rescue the last remaining 4 members of the team, as well as their coach.

Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is heading the rescue effort, said earlier that Tuesday's operation began just after 10 a.m. and involved 19 divers. The boys' ordeal has captivated the world's attention.

Trained divers from the U.S., the U.K., Canada and elsewhere flew to Thailand to offer their expertise and help escort the team out through the flooded cave passages.

The rescue missions take almost half a day to complete. "It's towards only one goal".

An ambulance leaves the cave complex area hours after the start of the second phase of an operation to rescue the boys. 1 NEWS' Correspondent Kimberlee Downs has the latest from Chiang Rai, Thailand. Thinking about how they've been kept in a small cave for two weeks, they haven't seen their mums.

Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich added: "Bayern is delighted to hear of the successful rescue of the young football team and their coach in Thailand".

It has not been easy extracting the 12 boys and their soccer coach from the flooded underground cave complex in northern Thailand.

"Moreover, based on extensive cave video review and discussion with several divers who know journey, SpaceX engineering is absolutely certain that mini-sub can do entire journey & demonstrate at any time", Musk added.

There was no immediate update on the health of the remaining five who emerged from the cave on Tuesday, but Thai Navy SEALS said they were "safe".

Two British divers found them nine days later huddled on a muddy ledge in pitch darkness more than 4km inside the cave system.

Staff previously said their first assessments would focus on the boys' breathing and signs of hypothermia, as well as a potentially fatal lung infection known as cave disease.
