Here's What You Need To Know About The Thai Kids Who Have Been Stuck In A Cave For Two Weeks- WORLD OF BUZZ 4

"Potentially deadly histoplasmosis - a lung infection also known as "cave disease" and "spelunker's lung" caused by breathing in spores from animal waste - is one of several illnesses that medical experts are anxious the 12 boys and their coach could have contracted while trapped deep in the subterranean system".

The Facebook page of the Thai Navy SEALs, who have been central to the rescue operation, was updated Monday night to say "two days, eight boars" - a reference to the Wild Boars, the name of the boys' soccer team.

The first thing the Thai boys rescued from a cave said was that they missed their homes and were happy to be out of the cave, officials at the the Chiang Rai hospital said on Sunday.

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

In total, 13 foreign cave divers and five Thai navy SEALs participated in Sunday's rescue, according to Reuters. They also asked for - and were given - a small amount of chocolate.

He added that the divers were the "same multinational team" that rescued the four boys on Sunday.

The boys and their coach went exploring in the massive Tham Luang Nang Non cave on June 23 after a soccer practice, and were cut off when a rainstorm flooded the cave. Eight boys have been rescued so far while the remaining four boys and their coach still remained trapped in the cave.

Two of the boys possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling", he said.


Last week, Musk said he was sending teams to Thailand from his private space exploration firm, SpaceX, and engineering firm, Boring Co. which is developing tunneling systems for transport projects. "The equipment they brought to help us is not practical with our mission", the publication also quoted him as saying.

It could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital, Mr Jesada told a news conference. Four boys and their coach remain in the cave, but it's unclear if authorities will try to extract them in a group of four or try to take the five out in a single mission.

The Associated Press reports that the families of the boys "were being kept at a distance because of fears of infection and the emaciated-looking boys were eating a rice-based porridge because they were still too weak to take regular food, authorities said".

The boys remain in quarantine but some of their parents have been able to see their children through the glass.

Four of the boys were safely rescued on Sunday after rescuers carried out a risky operation, amid fears the waters will rise again to a unsafe level.

At least nine ambulances and a convoy of other vehicles were at the cave site Tuesday.

Today's rescue mission began at around 10 a.m. local time.
