At least six of the boys are now free from the Tham Luang Nang Non caves in Chiang Raiv after being stuck on a ledge since June 23.
This means there are still six boys to go, as well as their coach, Ekkapol Chantawong.
At 10am local time, 18 divers went into the cave to bring out the boys – including 13 international divers and five Thai Navy Seals.
A senior member of the rescue medical team since confirmed that six boys have now exited the cave complex.
They are apparently safe and reasonably well.
A source, speaking after the first two boys were rescued, said: “Two kids are out. They are currently at the field hospital near the cave,” said Tossathep Boonthong, chief of Chiang Rai’s health department and part of the rescue team.
“We are giving them a physical examination. They have not been moved to Chiang Rai hospital yet."
It has been reported that doctors assessed the boys inside the cave on Saturday, where they drew up an priority evacuation list.
