Four boys out of 12 trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand with their soccer coach have been freed as part of an ongoing rescue mission that started Sunday after the group was initially found July 2-about a week after the search for them began.

Four boys have been confirmed rescued from the cave in northern Thailand where they have been trapped for two weeks.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said the four who escaped were "safe" but released few details about their condition or identities.

On Friday, the death of a former Thai navy SEAL underscored the risks.

Complicated rescue: Local government officials said 13 foreign and five Thai divers are taking part in the long and risky operation to free the 12 young soccer players and their 25-year-old coach. "I confirm that we are at war with water and time from the first day up to today", he said Saturday.

The rescue mission began on Sunday morning, almost a week since the 12 boys, aged 11-16, and their coach had been discovered on an embankment 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) inside the winding tunnels.

The boys and their coach had been stranded in Tham Luang Nang Non when they went exploring in the cave after a scrimmage June 23. The boys are between 11 and 16 years old.

But for many in Thailand, Mr Ekapol, who left monkhood three years ago, is an nearly divine force, sent to protect the boys as they go through this ordeal.

"We need to refill", Narongsak said.

It took nine days to find them in the underground network's dark depths.

Earlier Thai's Navy SEALS said that three boys had been rescued, and officials later told Reuters and AFP that six boys had been saved.

Initial euphoria over finding the boys alive quickly turned into deep anxiety as rescuers struggled to find a way to get them out.

An global team of rescuers is working diligently to extricate the youth soccer team trapped in a flooded cave in northern Thailand. Incoming monsoon rains could once again flood the cave and deplete oxygen levels. "If that's the case, then we have to reassess the situation", he said.

But with the rainy season just beginning, it has become clear that the flooding which originally trapped the boys will only get worse in the coming days.

Meanwhile rescuers fed a kilometres-long air pipe into the cave to restore oxygen levels in the chamber where the team was sheltering with medics and divers.

Musk said based on "feedback from Thailand", the engineers made a decision to build a "tiny, kid-size submarine" using a large silver tube meant to be affixed to a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. It was not immediately known if a USA diver was among them.

The California tunnel company run by Musk is continuing to maintain a presence at the Thai cave where several boys and their soccer coach are awaiting rescue. "I had been anxious about my son, that he would be exhausted, he would be tired", he said. With love." "Don't be anxious, I miss everyone.
