Thai rescuers bring 9th boy out from Tham Luang cave
Mae Sai, Jul 10: Thai rescuers brought a ninth boy out from the Tham Luang cave this afternoon, police and navy sources said, after 18 days trapped underground.
"The ninth boy is out," the police source told AFP, requesting anonymity, while a Thai navy source confirmed the boy "has been transferred from the cave entrance to the field hospital."
Rescuers aim to guide out the remaining five members of a football squad from inside a flooded Thai cave, the chief of the painstaking operation to free them told reporters.
"We plan to bring out four boys and coach," rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said, adding "a doctor, and three (Thai Navy) SEALS" who have stayed with the group since they were found more than a week ago will also leave the cave today.
