He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests.

A source involved in the rescue mission who saw two of the four boys walk out of the cave said that they looked exhausted but healthy.

He said rescuers would resume an operation to retrieve a remaining five people in about 20 hours' time.

Medical staff involved in the rescue mission said their first assessments when the boys arrived at the hospital focused on their breathing, signs of hypothermia and an airborne lung infection known as "cave disease", which is caused by bat and bird droppings and can be fatal if untreated and allowed to spread to other parts of the body.

They are still being quarantined from their parents because of the risk of infection and would likely be kept in hospital for a week to undergo tests, officials said.

Rescue operations chief Narongsak Osottanakorn described Sunday's initial rescue bid as "D-Day" when it was launched, and there were fears that any one of many potential pitfalls could prove deadly.

They were celebrating a second triumph after divers guided four more boys through tight passages and flooded caverns to safety Monday.

The members of the "Wild Boars" team, aged between 12 and 16, were guided to safety through the twisting, submerged passages of the cave complex by a team of worldwide expert divers flanked by Thai Navy Seals over two days in a meticulously planned operation.

Bye Bye To The B- IHOP Is Back
The pancake restaurant tweeted on Monday: "We're giving away 60ยข short stacks on July 17 from 7a-7p for IHOP's 60th birthday". IHOb has officially returned to calling itself IHOP - and admitted the change was all part of a publicity stunt.

By last night, elite divers had managed to bring out eight members of the football team which included 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach.

Authorities have been rushing to extract the boys, ages 11-16, and their coach from the cave as the annual monsoon bears down on the mountainous region in far northern Chiang Rai province.

Pad kra pao, a Thai chicken dish, was said to be the first meal that the four boys asked for.

"The water level is still at a satisfactory level and we have enough teams to complete the mission", Narongsak said on Monday.

"The divers that were assembled from many countries are proud to have conducted this operation until its success", Narongsak said.

Cave rescue experts have said they consider an underwater escape to be a last resort, especially with people untrained in diving.

However, they ended up starting the rescue effort a few hours earlier than planned.
