It is rainy season in Thailand at the moment, with torrential downpours that appear out of nowhere dominating the weather patterns. The final group of four boys and their 25-year-old coach were brought out Tuesday.
The eight boys brought out by divers on Monday and Tuesday were doing well and were in good spirits, a senior health official said.
It's the news the entire world has been waiting more than two weeks to hear.
However, officials say at least 3 Navy SEAL divers and a doctor are still inside the cave. Rescue crews are anxious about the amount of air the trapped children are using, which is being drained rapidly. Those evacuated so far have been taken to hospital in Chiang Rai for treatment and observation.
"We did something nobody thought possible", the acting governor of Chiang Rai province, Narongsak Osatanakorn, said once the 18-day ordeal was over.
Jesada said the group had been given x-rays and blood tests, adding that two presented suspected symptoms of pneumonia but were given antibiotics and were "in a normal state".

A ninth boy was rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand on Tuesday as divers were carrying out what they hope is a final mission to save the youngsters and their soccer coach trapped for more than two weeks.

The boys, aged 11 to 16, had no diving or scuba experience but quickly had to learn what they could.
The story captured national attention since British divers discovered the boys on Monday, July 2.

TRANQUILLIZERS AND QUARANTINE Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, who visited the cave on Monday, said the boys had been given tranquillizers to stop them getting stressed on the way out of the cave, but he dismissed any suggestion they had been "sedated".
Asked if their actions might be seen as insensitive at such a delicate time, Smith said: "There's going to be other production companies coming in, so we have to act pretty quickly".
