"Two days, eight Boars", read a Facebook post by the Thai Navy SEALS of the dramatic rescue that began Sunday, more than two weeks after the members of the Wild Boars soccer team were trapped.
All four boys brought out of the cave on Monday were taken by ambulance to a waiting helicopter which ferried them to hospital.
"The operation went much better than expected, " Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is overseeing the mission, said Sunday night.
That makes for eight of the 13 people who have been trapped under increasingly risky conditions since late last month. They were in good condition in hospital, officials said. "We heard four boys are out but we do not know who they are. And we will do it faster because we are afraid of the rain". The evacuation procedure calls for the boys to receive initial medical treatment there before rescuers take them through the remaining stretch of the cave to a field hospital outside, and then transport them by helicopter or ambulance to join their colleagues at the hospital.
Chokedamrongsook said the first group of boys taken out on Sunday were aged 14 to 16. "The water level is still at a satisfactory level and we have enough teams to complete the mission", Narongsak said on Monday.
Officials lavished praise on the Thai and worldwide divers who, in pairs of two, executed the risky rescue mission, guiding the boys, who could barely swim and had no diving experience, through a treacherous 2½-mile-long escape route that twisted and turned through the cavern.

As for the boys who have been rescued, they are in isolation and being monitored at a hospital for infection. The boys and their coach have been stranded about four kilometers inside the cave. It's unlikely the nine in the cave are aware their teammates were rescued successfully, due to a lack of communication tools between them and the entrance, according to Ten News reporter Daniel Sutton.
After the four boys were removed from the cave, heavy rain started falling.
Divers involved in the rescue described treacherous conditions, with fast-moving shallow water passing through very narrow passages.
