Nineteen divers entered the cave at 10 a.m. local time Tuesday (11 p.m. Monday ET).

"They (all the boys) will have to stay in the hospital for one week to wait for their results and to see if anything changes", he said. "Everyone is in high spirits and is happy to get out".

Four boys and their 25-year-old football coach "will be extracted on Tuesday", rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said.

In an atmosphere of growing confidence, close to jubilation, the rescuers said that, having rescued eight boys, they expected to bring out the final four boys later today.

CHIANG RAI- The eight boys who were rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand have been given a clean bill of health by doctors.

Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the ministry of public health, said: "All eight rescued boys today are in good health, none have a fever".

Two more boys left the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex a short time later and were transferred to a medical facility on site, followed soon after by a fourth boy, according to the eyewitness, who is stationed at the entrance to the cave. He said experience gained during the successful extractions in the preceding two days would allow them to work faster and more efficiently.

The second group freed on Monday were aged 12 to 14.

Family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass isolation barrier, and Jesada said doctors may let the boys walk around their beds Tuesday. The diver, the first fatality of the rescue effort, was working in a volunteer capacity and died on a mission to place air canisters along the passage to where the boys are, necessary for divers to safely travel the five- to six-hour route.

The "Wild Boars" team became trapped on June 23 when they set out to explore the cave after soccer practice and rains flooded the tunnels.

At a news conference Monday, former Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn said the second rescue involved numerous same divers who brought the four boys out on Sunday. A few hours later, Michael Safi, a Guardian reporter, confirmed that the sixth boy had been rescued.

Narongsak would not identify the rescued boys.

The plight of the boys, aged 11-16, and their coach, has riveted Thailand and much of the world - from the heart-sinking news they were missing to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys once they were found by the pair of British divers deep in the sprawling cave.

Musk tweeted: "Just returned from Cave 3". Four of them were rescued from the flooded Tham Luang cave on Sunday and the other four on Monday.

The general leading the huge global effort to rescue the young footballers and their coach thanked the god of rain for his forbearance, as the boys were guided out of the Tham Luang caves in full-face masks - easier than traditional respirators for novice divers to use - during an intense nine-hour operation.
