The 12 young members of a Thai soccer team and their coach have been rescued from being trapped deep inside a cave, marking the end of a two-week ordeal, but how did they get trapped in the first place? Major Saman Gunan - died during the rescue operation last week while trying to forge the escape path for the boys. A fresh operation to save the remaining five people was launched on Tuesday. The search operation quickly turned into a rescue mission involving 90 divers - 50 foreign and 40 Thai - though some warned it could take months.

The eight boys brought out on Sunday and Monday were in good health overall and some asked for chocolate bread for breakfast, officials said earlier.

A crack team of foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALS has been guiding the boys out through almost 4 km (2.5 miles) of sometimes submerged, pitch-dark channels.

The boys' malnutrition and exposure to unsanitary conditions inside the caves mean that they are at high risk of contracting cave sickness.

The rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped, officials had said.

"The equipment they brought to help us is not practical with our mission", Chiang Rai Gov. Narongsak Osotthanakorn, the head of the rescue efforts, said of the billionaire's technology, according to BBC. HE said the eight boys rescued are in "high spirits" and have strong immune systems because they are soccer players. Parents of the four boys rescued on Sunday were allowed to see them through a glass window at the hospital, public health officials said on Tuesday, but they will be quarantined for the time being.

The second group of 4 that were pulled out afterwards are aged between 12 and 14.

Jedsada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

The first three children brought out this morning were treated first in a field hospital before they were stable enough to be transported to a normal hospital, reported the NOS from Thailand.

Nargonsak said this phase may take longer than the previous two rescue missions, which both lasted several hours.

The boys, ranging in age from 11 to 16 and their soccer coach set out to explore the cave on June 23, but became trapped after heavy rains flooded passages. After they were found on July 2, officials cautioned it could take some time to get them out, but authorities made a decision to act with heavy rains forecast to hit the region.

"All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the SEALs wrote today.
