The focus is now on the eight remaining members of the football team and their coach, whom divers hope to bring out after rescuing four boys on Sunday. Its eighth floor has been reserved for the soccer team, their coach and their families - who have maintained a vigil by the cave's entrance while the boys have been underground. "Not wise questions to ask", Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha told reporters in Bangkok on Monday morning when asked about the conditions of the four.

It was not clear who was inside the ambulance or the helicopter.

Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn had said earlier Monday that the second phase began at 11 a.m. and authorities "hope to hear good news in the next few hours".

However, unlike Sunday and Monday when only four were brought out each day due to logistical constraints, rescuers would try to extract all of the remaining five in one operation, Narongsak said. We've got good news for you. Previously, round trips through the cave network would take about 11 hours.

Officials say they are in good health but will not be allowed close contact with their relatives because of the risk of infection.

After meeting with Thai SEAL officials and the other rescue teams involved in the operation, he said that this incident was a lesson to be learned and should never happen again in Thailand.

Rescuers working at a cave site in northern Thailand have suspended operations for the day after bringing four more boys out of the flooded cave system Monday, according to a witness working with the rescue team, bringing the total number of rescued boys to eight.

The mission was paused overnight on Sunday for air tanks to be replaced.

They were the second batch to undertake the perilous journey out of Tham Luang cave in Mae Sai district in Chiang Rai, after the first, weakest four left on Sunday in a similarly successful extraction.

There was no immediate word on their conditions. But officials waited several hours before confirming their rescue.

He said the boys rescued Sunday are strong and safe but need to undergo detailed medical checks.

None of the trapped boys has ever been diving before and some do not even know how to swim.

A heavy but brief downpour hit the area Monday morning, but authorities said that did not change the water level in the cave, as workers continue to pump water out.

Ambulances at the hospital are on standby to receive the next batch of boys who are expected to be plucked from the cave.

Thailand's Meteorological Department said there was a 60 percent chance of rain Monday with thunderstorms forecast throughout the week.

The first four rescued boys have been placed in a ward set aside specifically for the cave rescue, a source at the hospital said.

Four boys were extracted Monday, the Royal Thai Navy confirmed.

The most unsafe part of the journey out of the labyrinth cave system is the first kilometer, during which they are required to squeeze through a narrow flooded channel. They are then taken to hospital in Chiang Rai.

The names of the rescued boys have not been released out of respect for the families whose sons were still inside, and they have not been reunited with their own families, he added.
