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

Four people were then rescued from the caves in the first rescue stage, before being taken straight to hospital.

The Thai Navy SEALs have safely rescued all 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Northern Thailand where they've been trapped since June 23.

Divers, however, rescued the remaining boys and their 25-year-old coach without the help of Musk's submarine.

Scott and co-producer Adam Smith have reportedly been conducting interviews around the rescue site, where more than 1,000 Thai personnel have been joined by dozens of worldwide specialists for the operation.

The Thai rescue effort has been assisted by experts from around the world, and the death of a former Thai Navy Seal diver who ran out of oxygen in the cave on Friday underscored the dangers of the mission.

The head of the operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said earlier the final operation would be "more challenging" because one more survivor would be brought out, along with three Navy SEALs who have been accompanying them.

Four medics who have been accompanying the group since they were found on July 2 deep inside Luang Khun Nam Nang Non cave will also dive out with them, Narongsak said.

How divers rescued the first 4 boys from the cave in Thailand
On Friday, a former Thai Navy SEAL died while returning from an operation to deliver oxygen tanks to the cave. The boys had to travel about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) with oxygen tanks, tethered to cave divers to exit.

"But of course, they were conscious", he said. I'd like to send out shirts to them!

What followed was a massive search-and-rescue operation involving hundreds of divers and volunteers, who finally spotted the boys and their coach 10 days after they went missing.

The rescuers have been learning from experience and were two hours faster in bringing the second batch of survivors out on Monday.

Onlookers in Chiang Rai, Thailand, watch and cheer as ambulances transport some of the rescued schoolboys from a cave where they were trapped for two weeks.

The rescue process started at 10am local time on Sunday and involved 13 global divers and five Thai navy seals, who were referred to as "an all-star team" by NarongsakOsatanakorn, who is the Governor of Chiang Rai province and head of the joint command centre coordinating the rescue.

"We have more expertise than yesterday", he said. The first four evacuees had already removed their eye-protecting sunglasses and had started taking solid food.

Worldwide rescue teams had worked around the clock after the boys were discovered by British divers, to try to drain the caves enough to rescue them.
